Hi. I know, it's been a while. I normally post on Sundays, but the past few I've been traveling. Playing catch up now. At any rate, I did manage to get a new Watercolor Technique video out. Jacqui Binford-Bell stopped by the gallery to show us how she pours watercolor on canvas...and believe me, it's not what you might think! Take a look:
She's already sent me photos of her progress and process so there will be a follow up shortly so you can see the finished piece. In the meantime, catch Jacqui at the New Mexico Arts and Crafts Fair and the Expo New Mexico State Fair Grounds, this weekend. I imagine she's already this piece popped in a frame to have on display at the show.
Also, this Friday is the monthly Fourth Friday Reception. I'm featuring the work of local Shirley Ellingboe, the newest addition to my gallery. I still recall the days when she was giggling through watercolor class...and then she just took off! Now she's mostly working in oil and that's what I have for the show. If you're in Angel Fire come out on Friday, starting at 5.
Also new at the gallery is some really awesome new abstracts from Kevin McDermott...and no, we're not related, at least as far we know. Take a look. They are all unique, and interesting and beautiful, if a bit fragile (at the corners.) I really love this one:
Isn't it gorgeous? It is 24x 18, and framed. Mixed Media and acrylic. He's really pushing the envelope and each one is better and better. And this one, on the right is stunning as well. The depth of color and textures and simply delicious! Believe it or not, he brought me a dozen new works in this genre!
Please feel free to comment on the video ...and anything else here! See ya next time!
