The Arts Alliance of Georgia is hosting artist talks this Saturday, January 8th. I’m excited to have three small (8″ x 8″) paintings in the show. One of them, Violets #03, was an honorable mention. Peace from my Pantheon series is also on display at the same location.
Talking about art in front of people is hard. Do they want to know about the materials? What inspired the work? Is the answer ” I felt like painting some flowers and I had these paints” an okay thing to say? Whoops that is more of a nightmare. A lot of my subjects have a deeper personal meaning to me. Someone else might see some red roses where what I see is a reminder of hope and dedication. As fun or scary as it is speak in public, it’s also an opportunity to share and connect. You can learn more about my perspective and approach to art on my about page.
Here are the details:
