Hanging an art show at Gallery One

Gallery One
Today I am hanging the show "Green with Envy "with Monique at Gallery One in Nashua.
What a nice day to be hanging paintings on the walls!
I also started a new store on Ebay to sell jewelry and paintings...that will be a new experience in the life of an artist!

Paintings of women

I choose these 3 paintings today because they hold some particular significance:

1-The first on was sold and is now in Lebanon. It was a commission from the Tabet family. A lot of fun to paint since I could use all my bright colors and I know that in the land of the sun, colors are always welcome.
2-The painting titled "Remembering the Flower Door" was chosen this year to represent "Bridges" in their efforts to protect women from violence and abuse..They will sell cards with my painting's image for Mother's day!
3- The third painting titled "The Dream" was one of my first paintings in that genre, painted in the 90's. It is in my book, a collector's item since my style has evolved since !

Five women and the Iris

Today, March 21th, first day of Spring, is the first day I am posting one of my figure paintings on this blog. I have been doing a lot of marketing lately trying to take photographs of all my work that has been haunting and decorating my closets for the past years.

So here I am...Here is my paintingof the day. It is titled Women and the IRIS. It was painted with oils on a 30"x40" canvas and exhibited in many places among which the Whistler House Museum of Art in the year 2000. It was an invitational exhibit organized by MaryAnn Corrivaros who worked for the Museum gallery. I remember giving a little speech about my work during the "Lunch with the Artist" hour to explain how I get my inspiration for my paintings. !

Tulips in Pennsylvania

I went to the Levy Gallery in Portsmouth to get a painting of mine. It is a painting of the tulip fields I saw last year in Pennsylvania not far from the Hershey hotel. The weather was still cold but all the tulips had bloomed and created a sea of colors.
I had a hard time choosing the colors . Red, oranges and yellows were fighting for the best spot on my canvas
