Getting feedback from an exhibit is crucial for an artist–and don’t you believe those who claim that they don’t care what the viewing public thinks of their work: they do. My painting style has changed considerably since 2013, when I produced “landmarks with a twist” or 2015, the heyday of my popular series of minimalist animals.
Recently, my art has become very abstract, with mostly dark overtones, and I didn’t quite know how viewers would respond to it. Last month I got an answer. I am very pleased to be the recipient of an Honorable Mention for a painting titled Masquerade, which was part of the Contemporary Art Group’s juried show on exhibit at the Watchung Arts Center. The judge described it as “loaded with color, with great balance and tons of energy.”
I have two other paintings hanging at the Bernardsville Library during the month of June. One is funny, the other sad. I hope you have the opportunity to view the exhibit. Have a wonderful, art filled summer!
