Well, it looks like the weather gods and goddesses will co-operate for a great day of action on Saturday, July 23, 2016 in Longview, Alberta, a quaint town in the heart of cowboy country, south of Calgary. This is the town’s Little New York Daze, with artists, craft vendors, a town parade and rodeo. I will be painting at The Lost American Art Gallery and Museum, on main street, from 1 to 3 pm. I am represented by this gallery, and talk about a great fit. As many of you know, New Mexico is my heart home, and this gallery carries Southwest artifacts, including old-style turquoise jewelry, and museum pottery pieces from Acoma and other pueblos.
Here are some of my pieces hanging in the gallery.
Inside the Raven’s Nest 16 x 20 $575
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a baby bird, nestled deep inside your nest, staring up at the passing blue sky and bright sun? And then to have parent birds fly down, towards your gaping beak, as they arrive head-first. What a view from your circular world, built of moss, leaves and twigs, cradled in the branches of a towering tree. This is the feeling I sought to convey in From Inside The Raven’s Nest, the outer dark edges of the nest circular and open to the rising morning sun and pale blue sky. I was inspired to do this painting earlier this week, while watching ravens somersault through the blue, their groaking filling the valley in which I live. If you call out to them, they do answer.
