Gallery Day : Shades Of Green Exibit

Main Street Gallery: Recycled works into art
Holding my breath not sure to release what was left. Black walls, white lights,the setting was like a stage. Only it wasn't me standing there in the luminous light. Only held up by a single nail was dances of colors created into art. Standing there was my art staring at me, standing there amazed it was looking back at me. From oil painted trees in all shades of green, to robots in a draw nails in its' heart. A big metal bird with a peek-a-boo door, to mazes on a wall made of egg carton.

Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision — it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so…The painter…must show people more than they already see…Here is where art comes in.
-Charles W. Hawthorne

Took a trip then a turn and full circle I have returned. Jan., Feb. (missed Valentines Day), here we are in March. As the branches bud with leaves so have I. With news that March 19, 2010 my art will be featured in the Shades of Green exhibit. My art as well as other local artists, will put on display recycled material in all different forms of art. Never thought this winding road would leave me to actually submit something for people to dissect with their eyes.
Thank you for everyone's encouraging words and support. Within me is bits of everyone and with all of you in mind is how I am inspired to create.
