What a gorgeous day today! The sunshine and warmth was a welcome guest. I spent a pleasant four hours greeting visitors during the afternoon at the "29 Artists - 29 Years", 29th Anniversary Exhibition Lecture Series at the Zenith Gallery. The gallery team put on a display of additional paintings of mine during the artists talk. Fellow blogger, Sharon Burton of Authentic Art DC graced the Zenith Gallery premises in downtown Washington, DC for an hour. Sharon graciously talked with me about art, life and creativity. During our "painting-side chat" we were able to discuss the journey that we each experience as artists. Some of the creative territory that we covered were common themes of travel, the Desert Southwest in New Mexico, pictorial space, abstraction in painting, the architectural splendor of Washington, DC, how artists incubate in DC vs. New York City, acrylic processes and meaning in art; a lot to cover in one hour. After today's conversation, I would love to record future guests on a digital recorder that can download voice to text to a Macintosh G5 computer. Any recommendations?
Here are some pictures from today's Lecture Series. Enjoy.
