My long awaited 1st showing in a gallery show since last showing at Art for the People in summer of 2019 opened this past weekend and wife and I took the 8 year old to see 😊
He’d been there those nearly 3 years ago & remembered the spacious light, friendly pug and both Lynnie and Hallie who run the gallery – and the ice cream shop next door, lol!
Blue Impressionist Abstract 1 was hung vertically, which I’m glad, ’cause I’ve been trying to figure ways to let folks know that, though I sign the work in one particular corner, these color field- texture blocks work in multiple directions. Sometimes even I am hard pressed to choose which side is up ☺️
So as seen below, I’m quite happy with the show’s start!
Further below is a another shot showing part of the gallery’s expansiveness – and, staggered in a 5-set on the black backdrop, is also the work of a fellow artist friend of ours and our youngest daughter ( mom to the observant 8 year old! ) – Alan Winter.
My photo doesn’t do justice to his nearly stain glass effect, though you can reach him both via his Facebook page, and of course via Art for the People .
He’s a young man who served in the military and since has developed his art to quite a good following 👨🎨 🎨
I myself am very pleased to be part of this new group currently showing at Art for the People.
Leaving with the 8 year old to go get some hamburgers, fries, tea, and vanilla creames at Sandy’s Hamburger ( also 1st time in several years), Sheila mentioned to the Lynnie and Hallie how wonderful the show looked, actually best we’d seen there!
And I concur! So if you happen to be in Austin, or can view & purchase online, I can only highly recommend Art for the People for your art considerations ❤️
Stay well everyone! 💕

- May 17, 2022 – I Have a Lot of Happenings ( art & personal ) This Week, But Still Finding Moments To Start a New Painting : Morning’s PromiseIt’s nice to dance the surface of my canvas as needed. And able ☺️ And right now, a light step, at an easy pace, may give me the time – and energy – to get more than a handful of other needed things also done this week. Not a bad compromise. For now 😊
- May 16, 2022 – New Diptych : “Freedom” Almost Finished, Panels Need Signing ( front & back )And what I’ve come across figuring out how to make prints of this that folks can work with, ie, close to or within standard size dimensions, was how to get a 22×28 image convert into – in 2 examples – an 8×10 or 12×18, and I came up with this as a starting prototype….
- May 15, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, “Spring Rising”I’d done a lot of deep or darker night-like paintings for a bit, so it felt pretty nice to lighten up my palette for awhile. Working back & forth, from the two approaches – playing the potential good from both approaches seems to suit my Libra middle, lol!
- May 14, 2022 – My 1st Classical Stretch Workout with Miranda Esmonde-White ( via YouTube ) in Many Months!Though similar to SilverSneakers’ classes, Miranda’s classes focus largely on making the fascia network in our bodies more fluid. Some movements are very similar, but more extended, dance-like, reflecting Miranda’s ballerina and dance background!
- May 13, 2022 – “Angel” in AVAA’s 1st Austin Art Space Gallery and Studio Group Show in a Long Time!Just a very quick post to announce that my 18×24 inch acrylic on stretched canvas, Angel – has been accepted into Austin Visual Arts Association’s ( AVAA) 1st group show since ( I believe ) the pandemic. Definitely been a long time coming and feels great to be able to be showing with this long time Austin art association again! 😊
- May 12, 2022 – Updated My #Twitter Header Image and Pinned TweetThough Twitter’s future is up in the air, or ether, or virtual landscape; and my own “footprint” there and social media in general is micro-whatever, lol! — it’s still my micro existence, and I want to care for it best I can 😊
- May 11, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Joan Mitchell, “I carry my landscapes around with me” – #Polyptychs…my reading of Joan Mitchell’s work – while often including much of that same connection, speaks more directly to me about the impact of the canvas before me in that process. Especially most specifically in regard to Joan’s work with multi-panel / multi-canvas works of art – ie, polyptychs!
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
