The art was hung last night at the Avalon Salon on B street , San Rafael, 25 pieces in all. Looking around, I had to take some pride in the body of work, and how good it all looked. There are 7 in identical frames, which helps the presentation, and most of the pieces have good impact. None have titles. Ironically, the one I have pictured here was left out of the show due to the mat it’s in, which doesn’t quite work with the art. One of these days, I’ll re-frame it. So, this Friday night will be the opening, and I hope to have fun, and get a good turn out. 3 Blue Herons went up too in one room.
This short article on the inspiration and the creation of the Blue Heron series came out of me so easily, it seems to have written itself. In short, it explains how I first was inspired by this bird, then reminded about that instance 20 years later, and how the recent series has progressed.
