|“Spirit Bird” 9×12″ acrylic|
Yep, I am flying on Cloud Nine these days as my artistic career has reached an all-time high (wait — that’s a different song). Beginning June 22, 2014, Fernwood Gallery in Niles Michigan will be featuring my art in a one-woman show, through most of July! That’s right — all me, all the time!
Fernwood is a lovely place, a state-of-the-art facility located in a beautiful botanical garden. I can’t think of a better setting for wildlife art than a place surrounded by trees and fields and the flora and fauna of Southwest Michigan.
Needless to say, this is a dream come true. I have my work cut out for me as I now need to have 30 original pieces ready to hang on display. Yikes! It’s a good thing I have a few months to do this. Here are a couple of my first attempts to fill the gallery. Both are eagles, and both are acrylic on 9×12″ stretched canvas (which is easily hung without the expense of framing). I have an affinity for raptors and so probably will be including some owls in the mix. With these will come some other birds and wildlife, and of course, some of my equine art. All pieces will be for sale as I produce them. I will try to keep my blog updated with new art — so check back for lots more where this came from!
