6 Little Paintings

The Holiday Little Picture Show at the Providence Art Club opens to the public this Sunday, November 18th, with a reception from 12 - 4pm.  These 5x7 inch acrylic paintings on board were great fun to complete.  I will be painting several more for the Jamestown Art Center Holiday Show at the end of the month.

I encourage all to stop by the art club this season.  Hundreds of paintings are on display, with no painting priced higher than $250.  It is a perfect way to begin a collection!

Lusterstone Walls in Eggplant

This two day project was completed during "Sandy" at Moss Salon on North Main Street in Providence.  Lusterstone is a mica embedded resin that is applied with a trowel or blade.  It reflects light well and creates great depth of color.  It is also very durable and easy to repair if needed.  The area behind the concrete balusters was challenging but the impact with the aged gray of the concrete was worth the extra effort.
