Me as subject

It's a very busy art week for me in all ways possible.  I am cleaning my studio, painting, taking a workshop  on Saturday, attending a friend's opening and reading about art.  A friend, artist  and fellow arts advocate Tina Dolter is opening an exhibition this weekend. 

In this series of figurative works Tina  

"takes on a universal theme that explores the feminine allure, the positive influence that maturity and life experience has on the perception of female attractiveness and the idea of the female as the centre of human sensual power.

The exhibition is comprised of a series of twelve full sized portraits of women from St. John’s, from varied and diverse backgrounds, all over forty, experiencing the most creative and dynamic time of their lives."

Check it out at Christina Parker Gallery ,you may see a familiar face!

How wonderful to be so involved in your community and interests! Good luck with the studio cleaning. Mine's all packed away for a month or so, but I look forward to seeing it all again in the Spring.

Your work is so interesting. I really enjoyed your remnant series. Lots of my relatives were from St. John. I haven't been there since I was a child, but I remember the city fondly. I will be back to see what you are doing. Great blog. xox Corrine

Sounds like a very good week! I guess the East Coast is thawing out a bit? Also, envy you for the Encaustic conference on the Cape -- I just couldn't line up my time off to coincide -- come back and tell us about it!
