Exhibit at Linda Hodges Gallery with Jacques Chevalier

Feb 18, 2014

From February through March 1st I am exuberant that my portraits are being exhibited with Jacques Chevalier's at the Linda Hodges Gallery.

If you haven't seen the work, please go by, bring a friend, preferably an art collecting friend...I do believe the point for a gallery is sales. In all seriousness though, I was so thrilled to see my work on the gallery website, and what a fun surprise to see my name on the wall.


It's such a joy to paint the portraits and I'm almost always surprised by the outcome. Above you see one on paper, Marc Allen Pinsky, and to the right, one on canvas. They wouldn't be difficult to frame...float them on a board and frame the board without glass.


Here are my daughters...growing up so fast, in front of one of my favorite paintings, Deborah - on paper, and in front of David Guilbault - on canvas.


I did not manage to get a photo of Linda ... yet ... but I love this picture of Director Dale Cotton, his heart so clearly sparkles through.


It's been such a thrill for me to exhibit in this venue. The opening was tremendous, a live jazz duo, Jacques' work, and so many people came by. I have to confess that I have a bit of social anxiety, and so when I really made a sincere effort to ask people to come to the opening and they confirmed, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to spend time with them, that they would come in all at once and all end up miffed that I couldn't even manage to say hello. But, that didn't happen. And my friends understood that it was busy. I met some of Linda's artists who came to the opening. One lovely person I met, to my great surprise, said I was eleusive. I've never been called eleusive before. It got me grinning. Above are the portraits Downtown Abbey and How to Babysit, 29 x 22" latex on paper $850. I think they should be hung like that, the two of them facing away from each other is an installation! The tension and communication between them is electric.


Loving the humor and intensity of this small Jacques Chevalier painting. I like the shadow zipping towards me, the heavy texture in the body as the stream of light goes into the fire, is he putting it out or making it burn brighter?


This painting of Jacques, Backstage Girl (After Vermeer) sold! Comme ca!


I found this Peter Gross painting, Avenida Amsterdam, in the upstairs gallery.


And this tiny sculpture by Timea Tihanye, Construct Olympic Statium, it the upper gallery back room.

All-in-all it's been a warm, inviting, professional, efficient experience exhibiting with this gallery. I think I could get used to this.

Thank you for seeing the exhibit.
