The Colorado Watercolor Society first show on the Western Slope opens at the Gunnison Center for the Arts Friday, Aug 4, 2017. I will show three works; two florals, “Orchids,” “Cosmos,” and an equine themed work, “No Hoof, No Horse.” The two florals celebrate the glory of light on natural forms. “Orchids” is backlit, providing for a dramatic composition, while “Cosmos” shows reflected light of flowers in full sun. “No Hoof, No Horse” explores lost and found edges and the fading of form through the phenomenon of smoke.

In the upstairs gallery, the Arts Center is showing its annual fundraising exhibition, “Tiny Treasures.” I have submitted two watercolor paintings of birds inspired by Japanese scrolls. These “tiny treasures” were painted in a diamond format to give them a dynamic composition. Both watercolor on paper and oil/acrylic on canvas will be offered.
