Flying Fish

Flying Fish

I hope everyone enjoyed Titusville Art League’s 47th Annual Spring Show.  I know I did.  Lots of beautiful works.  Made some new friends and got to chat with some old friends.  And best of all, Flying Fish, my latest acrylic abstract, took 3rd Place in the Oil, Acrylic, and Oil Pastels category.


This weekend is Titusville Art League’s Annual Spring Show.

I’m entering a brand new acrylic piece titled “Flying Fish”

Amidst preparing for art shows, dealing with gallery business, working on a one day artist in residence demonstration and working with central Brevard High School Art Teachers to find this year’s scholarship recipient for Central Brevard Art Association, I am trying to prepare for May when I’ll be the featured artist at Art Gallery of Viera.  I’m planning an exhibit of my new series of acrylic abstracts and I find the more I paint, the further behind I seem to get.  I’ve sold some and others are tied up at an exhibit at Pizza Gallery & Grill.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m very pleased that they are being so well received.  I am enjoying them as well.  It seems every time I work on them I discover a new technique or a new tool to use to create an even more unexpected effect.  Here is a new one that is quite different.  Different color palette, different textures.

Linda Brandt’s mixed medium piece is among works by 78 artists in “All 4 Love,” an exhibition at The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery.
The Fifth Avenue Art Gallery presents “All 4 Love,” an exhibition comprising work of 78 artists, including work by Linda Brandt, former chairwoman of the Brevard Cultural Alliance.

Art in the show will be given randomly to ticket holders of the show’s special reception March 19.

Tickets cost $100, which includes admission for two, wine, refreshments and a work of art the ticket holder will choose.

Proceeds benefit Sentinels of Freedom Space Coast, which helps fund scholarships for severely injured military personnel from Brevard County after they return home from serving overseas.

The charity inspired Renee Decator to organize the exhibition.

“I thought it would be a cause artists would get behind, and they did,” she said. “They wanted to participate. It involved our whole community of artists. The museum printed the books.”

The reception is 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 19 at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery, 1470 Highland Ave., Melbourne. Work in “All 4 Love” will remain on view in at the gallery until March 27. A book detailing the exhibition is available for $19 plus tax. Net proceeds for the book also will go to Sentinels of Freedom Space Coast.

*I will be there as one of the artists who has created an original artwork for the event.  When Rene asked me to participate, I had to say yes to such a worthy cause, no matter how busy I was.  My piece is an acrylic painting titled “Taking Flight”.
