Since completing the paintings for the Airport show I've taken a little break from that process and moved out to my garage studio creating some mixed media work. This is my escape from the tedious process to something more reactive. I have collected random things over the years, along with barn wood and other scrap wood, and love to just play with the different shapes and colors of these objects. It helps me relax, meditate, and let go of some stress so when I get back in the grove of painting, I feel fresh and more creative. I've done this for several years now and decided to exhibit these creations. Turnip Green Creative ReUse has allowed me to display in the Green Gallery from Oct. 15- Nov. 19. One twist to this show is that I am selling every item by silent auction. Every piece of art has a starting bid of $10, with no reserve. You really should drop by Turnip Green, or go to their FaceBook page and make a bid on one, or more, of these items. You can even place a proxy bid by emailing Ryan. He will update the bids once a day on the FaceBook page. The closing date of Nov. 19, at 7:00, will be your last chance. There are plenty to choose from. I put almost 40 pieces in this show. Below is an image from the gallery. Not a great photo, it was taken before I finished getting everything in place, but you can see the amount of work in the show. Even some of my older paintings made it into this exhibit.
I'll also be doing some mere work with the Nashville Collage Collective, the 4 founding members, in the next few months. We are having an Exhibit at Harpeth Hall's Marnie Sheridan Gallery. I'm not sure of the exact dates but will post those as soon as I find out.
I guess that's all my updates for now. I always mean to get on here more often, but never do. Thank you for taking time to read my blog, follow my social media, and send me emails. I really love getting questions or comments about my work.
I hope to see you at one of my events. Take care! RLP
