Painting: Celeste Bergin, Shopper, acrylic on 8x8 cradled panel

Today was our Thursday art discussion meeting and the main topic was signatures. Total fun when we all signed a practice painting. There's a knack to signing with rhythm and flow. To see more about our meeting go HERE.

After the morning meeting I swung by the Lane Gallery to see a sneak preview of Carolyn Rondthaler's work. (She is the featured artist in the current show: Winterfest).  I'm honored to have some pieces in the Gallery too. The Artist Reception is tomorrow evening (information in the sidebar on the left). 

Me & Gila 

In the evening Dave & I went to Michael and Vicki Lindstrom's Holiday Open House. Yes, in the air!

Oh I do love snowy pieces and with her red coat, the scene strikes me as oh so Christmas-y, which I love!! Wish I could see the show; the gallery front looks awesome!

Love the snow and red coat! Your shapes are simple and it pulls together so nicely! As always I enjoy your photos!

This looks "posterized." I like it--your women on the street always wear heels, even in snow.

The focus and clarity in your work is always strong and this is no exception! Love it!

You did so many things in this painting that I like: combination of colors, darks and lights, energy of the figure-that slash of snowbank and then the falling flakes.
