2nd Annual Valentine’s Art Show at Capriccio Ventura.
I have JUST finished installing my 2nd Annual Valentine’s themed art show at Capriccio in downtown Ventura.
It is such an honor to be able to have my mixed media artworks displayed at on the rustic brick walls of Capriccio.
This new series is called, “Share The Love”. I added on the theme from last year’s very popular 12×12 size canvas and included smaller canvases in sizes of 6×6, 12×6 and 8×10. You have all given me such great feedback about enjoying many options of sizes. In this series you will also see a real mix of colors, a departure from my usual love of just blues and greens.
There are two groupings of paintings, one group is in warmer earth tones and the other group is in cool tones. It’s a real great mix celebrating love and positive Aloha vibes.
Each painting starts with a feeling, less of a picture in mind and I just grab paints randomly as it meets my developing vision. Some of the backgrounds were created with the start of collaged vintage sheet music, vintage botany textbooks, dictionary pages and more. I enjoy incorporating bits of paper and colored bits along with my painting in juicy acrylic paint tones.
I hope you will be able to make the exhibit. Please swing by and let them know I sent you in!
Oh! Also, please comment below if you would like to see me add the show online for those of you out of town.
Thanks so much for letting me “Share the Love”.
