Two Art Openings

The Art Group had its inaugural group show this month, at the Chambers Center at Denver University. 

I had the wall at the very end of the gallery (near the wine!)
For reference, the two large paintings are 36" square each.

We had a good turnout!

The "Own an Original" juried show opened last night at the Littleton, CO Museum Fine Arts Gallery. The juror made a nice comment about my work... something about "Very Gutsy" (works for me). Photos were not allowed so you'll have to take my word that the level of work was outstanding. Also I did not recognize most of the artists showing, which was kind of a treat. 45 minutes down the road leads to a whole new group of artists. Go figure.

Moon Over My Hammy

"Moon Over My Hammy"  oil  10" x 10"

So what's the term of these old-fashioned toys, the ones with the push button in the bottom that animates the plastic limbs, strung together with elastic? I'm not sure I ever knew.
