I have been creating new paintings for my upcoming show at Ortego Gallery in Las Vegas. I’m quite excited about it. The Ortego Gallery is in The Arts Factory, in the arts district, where First Friday is a regular event. There is also Preview Night on Thursday, when artists and serious collectors make the rounds. The show will be up for the month of July.
Two of my new paintings were started at the First Annual Outdoor Paint-In. A number of artists participated in that event. So, those who saw my work that day may be surprised to see how different the works look after a couple more painting sessions in my studio. Also included in the show will be a painting I started at the Paint-In at Place Gallery.
I am especially interested in texture. So, I am always looking for new textures to explore and include in my work. Come to the show and check out “As If By Magic”. I’m keeping the new texture featured in this painting secret. You’ll have to come to the show! Let me know what you think!
