Ann updated on her display at Art Gallery Napa Valley today. Ann writes, “I decided that I should unify my exhibit to display a single medium.” Ann comments that there is an ongoing debate amongst artists about how best to display ones work. Some feel a variety of mediums best informs the viewer about the artist, while others maintain that a consistent look and feel is desirable. The latter is the approach of Open Studios Napa Valley where Ann has participated in recent years, that is when she not been traveling in September.
Marlene writes “ “Bubblegum “ is an ink painting: 14 x 14. I began this ink series when I found Zentangles designs several years ago. I liked the meditative aspect of repeated designs in Ink and color patterns. Zentangles and pattern paintings are part of my creative lexicon.
Inktober celebrates creations composed with inks and is highlighted the month of October.
Bubblegum is displayed at the Artist of The Valley, 1307 First Street. Napa, CA.
Sauvignon Summer Limited edition Giclee on canvas 48″ x 36″ (original sold)
The original oil was painted “Plein Aire” near St Helena off Silverado Trail. I tried to capture the feel of summer in this piece by capturing all the subtle warm and cool greens that are so prevalent in the valley during the summer months. I hope to convey the feeling of having a cool glass of Sauvignon Blanc while gazing across the vineyards.
