New Exhibit

Watercolor with Collage
Today’s Bouquet

I just finished hanging several pieces of art, in various styles and mediums, at Merritt’s Table.  (Thanks, Laura & Chris)

If you haven’t been there, Merritt’s Table is a fine dining establishment, located at 170 N. Grove Street on Merritt Island.  The restaurant specializes in using all fresh ingredients and the menu is constantly changing.  Stop in for some fine food, exceptional wine and enjoy some fine art while you’re there.

Moon Rising

I will be demonstrating my acrylic painting techniques this Saturday,
May 7 th, at the Life & Style Expo.  This event is being held at the Lexus of Melbourne dealership off Lake Andrew Dr. at 6927 Bromley Drive in Viera.
I will be there from 11 am – 2:30 pm, painting and chatting about my art.  C’mon out and explore the latest products and services offered by local businesses.

Last night was the opening reception for the “Mom Would Love That” show at Art Gallery of Viera and if you missed it, well you can still see the exhibit through the month of May.  There was food and friends and music and finally, the reveal of my latest work.  I reached and even passed my goal of 16 new pieces.  21 of the 22 pieces I installed can still be viewed.  Stop in, take a look and let me know what YOU think.
