ex·quis·ite

adjective

  1. extremely beautiful and, typically, delicate.”exquisite, jewel like portraits”
  2. Similar: beautiful, overly elegant, graceful, magnificent, superb

There are art pieces that I consider ‘exquisite’ because they speak to me. They can be large or small, refined or bold and realistic or abstract. The following pieces from our most recent art show at WAAC, From Nature to Abstraction, I find ‘exquisite.

At Last – My Opening was a Success

after months of work my show finally opened

Thanks to all who encouraged me to keep painting and then supported me with a visit to the gallery and/or messages of love. I couldn’t be happier.

Those little red stickers were the icing on the cake.

Ready for the Big Reveal

the doors open today for “Before and After Paris”

After months of preparation with ordering supplies, painting, framing and advertising, my show is ready for the public to see. I spent hours yesterday, with the help of two good friends hanging the paintings. Barb did a lot of the ladder work and Arlene eyed the levels and curated the placements. We were all very pleased with the final result. For those of you who live close by, I hope to see you at the opening but the show will be up till July 9th.

Here’s a peak of the gallery where every piece you see is mine.
