Folk typography

My father, gentleman farmer/rancher, was also apparently an amateur typographer, evidenced by this aluminum name plate he made for himself back in the late 1960s or early 1970s. It's as fine a piece of folk art as I can imagine.

A rose by any other image.

A student's watercolor tray stain looks like an expressionist, abstract rose, complete with a leaf. It's Spring, after all.

"A Llama"

"A Llama", 14 by 11 inches, acrylic on panel.

The September show at Norwood Flynn Gallery is now tentatively titled "Inside and Out", referring to "wildlife", basically animals in landscapes, and "still life" subjects.

At the Bath House

The opening reception for "A Mountain by the Ocean, A Man and A Woman" happened last Saturday night. Here I am with "Tiny Mountain Painting". I'm happy to report it's on its way to a new home after the show ends. Much thanks to the new owner.

Mountain, ocean, man, woman

The title of this post sounds like a Neanderthal man inviting his lady on a vacation date (with thanks to David Letterman whose maligned Oscar hosting I enjoyed, particularly his joke about Arnold Schwarzenegger using the title of "Eat Drink Man Woman" to invite Maria Shriver on their first outing). It's a variation on the name of the next Bath House Cultural Center show I'm involved with, "A Mountain by the Ocean, a Man and a Woman". Here, as long as it stays on the interwebs, is the scoop on the concept.

My contribution is "Tiny Mountain Painting", acrylic on canvas, 7 by 5 inches.

More about the show next time, when I post photos of the Saturday, March 9 opening reception.
