January / February Exhibit - Paint What You Love
Through March 3
Artists find that their work is more expressive , energetic, soulful and successful, when they PAINT WHAT THEY LOVE. For the January/February’s exhibit theme, Gallery One partners painted subjects that were special to them.
Lesley McCaskill’s fresh and lively watercolor, is titled “Moored by the Canal”. When she paints outdoors Lesley says her senses are heightened. She wants you feel the solid, anchored boat in contrast to the waving grasses and wispy moving clouds. She asks the viewer to imagine the fishermen’s voices, the singing of birds, the water lapping the shore, while enjoying the smell of the sea. Nothing compares to painting on location.
Peggy Warfield’s collage/mixed media piece,” Light in the Trees”, tells the viewer that her backyard with birds and trees and marshlands and bays is a place close to her heart.
