Sunsets Make Me Smile :) - Joyful Sunset - Small Oil Painting

"Joyful Sunset"
Oil on Gessoboard

I really enjoy painting these small sunsets. Most of them are from photos that some of my friends took by chance (lucky!).
Sunsets make me smile, and I love to see them framed too.

This one is currently at UOF Art Gallery in the Columbus, OH Short North in an exhibit with 150 small paintings by local artists. If you are in the area check it out! :)

Small Paintings Can Make Great Holiday Presents

Thumb Box Exhibition, all art 6x6 or smaller
Me at the opening
Many galleries organize shows of small artwork for the Holidays. Small usually means affordable and provides a great selling opportunity as original gift.

This year for the first time I am participating in two galleries that do this, and today was the opening of one exhibit, the Annual Thumb Box Show by the Ohio Art League.

Vibrant Tree I - SOLD
Each artist could submit up to three pieces, and I entered three of my vibrant trees, all acrylic on canvas.

I attended the opening tonight and got to enjoy all the interesting art, so much great creativity and skills in such a small size art!

The good news surprise was that when I got there one of my paintings had a red dot already. Neat!

The exhibit will be up until the 28th of December.

Exhibiting in Local Businesses

For the months of December 2013 and January 2014 I'll have some of my art
on show at Edward Jones Investments in Dublin, OH.
Isn't it wonderful when businesses welcome and support local artists?
Some businesses in Dublin, OH open their doors and lent their walls to members of the Dublin Area Art League. We all take turns showing our creations in these great locations. Being over the Holidays I get two months in a row.  Awesome!

If you walk by when the offices are closed you can still peak in, and one of my paintings (View of Tulum) is right by the window, as you can see on the left.
