Cherry Arts Stanley 2017

This year I'm selecting new abstract work for the art festival, and will be excited to hear what you think of the work!  I've added layers and layers of color and softened my palette, with an interesting and discoverable visual that keeps viewers looking at each painting as they continually see new things!

The Show Hours are Friday 6-9 and Saturday/Sunday 10-5, address is 2501 N. Dallas Street in Denver CO.

Coming up next weekend: SAM, the Art Students League of Denver's premier happening featuring professional members of its organization, is really amazing and a great collective showcase of excellent artwork.  Super excited to be juried into this excellent show!  (Its better than Cherry Creek folks!!)

Vail Arts festival 2017-Located at Arrabelle at Vail Square in the Lionshead Mall, Friday thru Sunday June 23/24/25 from 10-6PM. This is a beautiful area to walk about and have a nice lunch while enjoying fine juried artists' work!

Breckenridge Mountain Art Festival, Main Street and Wellington in downtown Breckenridge, Friday thru Sunday September 2-4, 10-6PM.  Break is getting quite an artistic buzz lately on the news, its a wonderful quaint mountain town, filled with great food, interesting shops and lovely galleries.  Will be a wonderful way to spend part of Labor Day weekend!

Thankfulness for 2016!

 

Greetings from CherryArts at Stanley 2016! 
This summer I participated in back to back Juried Art Shows, Summer Art Market in Denver, Crested Butte ArtsFest, Castle Rock Art Festival, and CherryArts at Stanley Marketplace in the Stapleton area of Denver.  It was a super busy season, and my collectors got the chance to see my new series, Landscape Love Songs, which is an aerial perspective collection of farmlands and atmosphere studies I am very proud of.  I sold many works and received several commissions, super excited for all of them!

At the beginning of the Fall Season I like to reflect on the spring/summertime activities and give thanks and appreciation to the excellent support I have been receiving for my artwork.  Without my wonderful collectors, this experience of being a full time painter would not be nearly as exciting.

Through their encouragement, their support, their love of my work, and many collecting more than one work to place throughout their homes, I am deeply honored and grateful.

10 Days to go!

Getting ready for the trip of a lifetime!  Breckenridge Colorado is absolutely lovely and they have such a terrific arts community and program.  I'm going to paint for two weeks, and concentrate on a series "Atmospheric Perspective" with work drawn from photographs I have taken of mountaintops, roads and foliage.  Here's what I'm doing today, stretching canvas for the trip!

 Gathering the necessary tools for canvas stretching.
