I’m participating in an altered book project for the first time.  My plan is to recycle some artwork from a previous project and use it to create my book.  I also took pages I liked from the book and put them away to use in a future piece.  I spent the weekend at an art show where I was able to create the cover for my book.  It should be finished soon and displayed in the “Renew” exhibition at the Satellite Beach Library.

The plight of the Black Cat

If you couldn’t make it to Art Gallery of Viera last night because you couldn’t get to your boat or your waders weren’t high enough to keep you dry, fear not!  The exhibit will be there throughout the month of October.  Odd art of all kinds are on display and you will marvel at the creativity and perhaps wonder “what were they thinking?”   The folks from the South Brevard Humane Society were on hand to dispel myths about black cats and raise awareness of their particular difficulty in getting adopted.  Donations of canned cat food, paper towels, cleaning products, etc. gratefully accepted.

This is such a busy time of year for artists in Florida after the summer doldrums.  For me, Central Brevard Art Association’s annual Heritage Isle show is coming up on November 12th & 13th.  I have nothing new available for that yet.  My watercolor classes at the Cocoa Beach Library start October 13th.  I have nothing prepared for that yet.  I’ll be in a show at Art Gallery of Viera in November.  I’m actually working on a few pieces for that one!  And that just starts the show season for me.  I’ve spent a lot of time in the studio lately, but I don’t seem to be making any headway.  I know I’ve said I work well under pressure, but good grief, if I don’t show some progress soon, well… that’s just not an option.  I could probably benefit from some time management training.  But who has time for that!?!  Any artists with any secrets to success out there?  I sure could use a few pointers.

Check out my latest exhibit at the Central Brevard Library located at 308 Forrest Ave. in Cocoa.  I’ve just hung 12 new paintings as Central Brevard Art Association’s Featured Artist for November through December.   They are a collection of acrylic abstracts, that while small, are full of texture and color.

Heat of Passion

   “Heat of Passion” is an example of the compelling colors and textures that are fundamental to this new series.  It swirls with movement and fiery colors.   

  “Graffiti” exudes the playfulness of wild abandon.  Textures are incorporated into the image from the beginning of the painting process and profoundly affect all of the following applications.

 These paintings will be on display until January 6th.

Art Gallery of Viera

It was an incredible night at the gallery.  The artists were excited to show their work, the community welcomed us and it was great to see so many old friends and meet so many new ones.  Guests mingled with the artists and learned more about their work all the while enjoying the live music provided by Matthew Heister & Dan Jordan.  Visit us Monday-Saturday 10 am- 9 pm or Sunday Noon- 6 pm at The Avenue, Viera.

The grand opening of the new and improved Art Gallery of  Viera is coming up fast.  It’s this coming Friday, October 15th, from 6-9 pm at The Avenue, Viera.  Weeks of work have gone into the preparations.  Artwork is hung, the classroom is up and running and the sign is finally on the front of the building.  It has been a dream. a labor of love, and now finally, a reality.  Come meet the artists and listen to music all the while enjoying the beauty and creativity that surrounds you.  Hope to see you there!
