under the surface

My first solo show opens today though the "reception" -- really a Saturday afternoon open house -- isn't until August 6th. I wasn't going to see how Pamela had hung the show until later this week, but I have to drive into town to see my GP today so will drop by on my way home. Though I felt as if I'd been strong-armed into painting this series early on I was really on a roll at the end. In some ways I wish I'd had more time to "get it right".

John pointed out that the paintings have a stained glass feel to them, which is fairly typical of my style, and decided to take the idea a step further and create this stained glass image of all the paintings in the series. Thanks, Johann!

Wow! That stained glass view really does have something going for it. The change of scale gives a whole different,fresh appearance and almost seems a unique work in its own right. Can I say this as a non-artist? ;-)

And good luck with the show!

Thanks, Andy. I need all the votes of confidence I can get! As for being a non-artist, I already know you have an "eye", so it means a lot!

All the best with the show, Andrea. I'm sure it will be a hit.
I'm a fan and although it may not mean much, know that you have at least one guy in your corner rooting for for you.

It means everything! You've generated an essay, Chitty, so see the next day.
