My new show, A Bowl Full of Happiness, had an opening reception Saturday June 24th. I have been working on a new collection, of paintings on canvas, since February of this year. This is the first time I have worked with Spalding Nix Fine Art located in Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia.
I took the canvases with me to Hambidge Center for my art residency in early March. The cold blue winter days were still hanging on in the north Georgia mountains. The paintings began to take shape there. I was cold and making a lot of hot soup. I was walking everyday alone in the mountains. I was studying the trees and rocks — watching the water flow and looking at the green moss. I finished the paintings back at my new studio in Arabia Mountain U.S.A. by the time summer was moving in.
Saturday evening was the big opening event and I was excited to debut this new collection of 17 paintings. You can see them all here.
The show will be on display until September 1st of this year. Please feel free to contact Spalding Nix Fine Art for hours and stop by soon to experience the new art.
