Bloody Mary

Here’s the last painting I have to finish before my opening at Katacombes next Wednesday. It’s my largest painting to date (4 feet long!)   and I think it will look quite nice over there.

If you are in the Montreal area next week, I’d like to see you there.

Graveyard Picnic – My show at Katacombes

In January,  I signed up for the postaweek2011 challenge on WordPress, it all went well until last week. Actually I’m surprised I was able to last this long. But I am having arm/wrist problems lately and I try to use my right hand as little as possible outside of work. But enough excuses, it was only a lapse of a few days.

I have good news. I’m having a show in June at Katacombes.  Les Katacombes is a coop show venue in Montreal (corner Ontario/St-Laurent) and the place is very pretty and dark at the same time. When I sent my art to the manager of programming, she commented that it was a good fit for their venue. I’m quite happy because it’s not easy to find a good place to exhibit paintings of graveyards.

The opening will be  June 1st from 7 to 9 PM. I’ll post again if I have more info.

 

My flyer for the show.

 

 

As a funny aside, my show is titled after the very first painting I did of a graveyard, which itself is titled after a Voltaire song. Voltaire will be playing at Katacombes in a few weeks, a few months to early too see the painting inspired by him.

L'ange de la Baie

J’ai passé la fin de semaine au chalet de mon oncle, et j’en ai profité pour faire un peu de peinture. J’ai étreiné la boite chevalet que j’ai eu pour Noël (il était temps) et j’ai essayé les acryliques Golden Open que mon amie Angela m’avait recommendées. Elles sèchent quand même vite, mais elles se mélangent bien mieux que de l’acrylique ordinaire.

Red oxide et unbleached titanium sur  massonite non préparé (pas de gesso ou d’aprêt) 9″x12″ , d’après une photo que j’ai prise dans un cimetierre à ville de LaBaie l’été passé.

Quelle excellente installation, avec la palette sur ma glacière.

Pas encore fini

Maintenant c’est fini, mais les couleurs ressembles un peu plus à celle sur la photo précédente, on dirait que mon nouveau scanner n’aime pas le massonite.  Je vais devoir prendre une meilleurs photo quand il fera clair!
