End of Autumn 2016 Exhibit

Summer is over and Autumn is now grinding to a wet and grey transition to bitter winter. My days of sketching outside I think are numbered…single digits even. I am having an exhibit in a kommun not too far, Spånga, hosted by the Spånga Arts Society. I will be displaying prints of my Giraffes on Wheels, a few new giraffes, and a handful of my colorful Autumn House pieces that have kept me upbeat for the past few weeks. As I feel the heaviness of the lack of sun, recreating the few gorgeous days of blue skies and magnificent color that Sweden provided this early Autumn has proven beneficial to my happiness. Below is a slight progression from urban sketching to playing with color and simple swedish architecture.

Come join me in Spånga, vernissage on Sunday, October 30th at Spånga Församlingshus, Värsta Alle 1, from kl. 17:00

Also open Weekdays from 9:00 -12:00 and 13:00-16:00 until November 12, 16:00

treasures from my morning walk

The beautiful paintings and works of leaves and fall and pinecones and seed pods and feathers and just all the gorgeous Autumn nature out there in blogoshere lately has left me drooling….and itchy. NO NO not a seasonal allergy kind of itch….I kept my nose to the pavement yesterday looking for color and intrigue which made my walk go by much faster (which isn’t really what I want….I love my meditative walks!) I love the rich red leaves and the curvy nature of the lichen, the subtle green hues not pushed out completely from the ochre in the leaves…..I had feathers, I lost the feathers. They must have flown away   😦
