A Couple of Paintings for Valentine's Day

These are a couple of pieces that I just completed for Valentine's Day. I was the featured artist this month at C'est la Vie in Edmonds. I also have several heart paintings at C'est la Vie in Renton.

New Work

This is the only painting I have painted in the New Year that is not a heart! I have been painting hearts for about two weeks now for C'est la Vie in Edmonds and in Renton. I think I am finished now and can move on to something new. I am not sure what that will be though as I am once again in transition. Sometimes it takes a few days and sometimes weeks, but eventually I start a new series. It may be that it is time to start some larger paintings. I have been working up to it.

Parklane Gallery Juried Show

The Juried Contemporary Art Show will be showing at Parklane Gallery in Kirkland through the end of January. I am not represented in the show, but I helped to organize it. The juror was Lynn Scott, and it is a great show, with many mediums represented. There is even a 67" woman made of vinyl straps and wire! The reception is January 14th from 6-8 p.m. I hope to see you there.

Big Hearted

Over the past six months I have worked off and on with a 36x36 heart painting. I didn't think I would have an opportunity to show it. Then Colleen at C'est la Vie said she loved it and to bring on all my hearts. Not only did someone want to show it, the very next day someone bought it! I am now busily painting hearts, large and small, for both C'est la Vie stores. Above is the painting "Big Hearted". There are a lot of layers and textures that are not obvious from the image. My hearts will be featured at C'est la Vie during Edmonds Art Walk, January 21.
