I am pleased to be hanging at the TINMAN GALLERY in Spokane for a group show. Sheila M. Evans sends these photos of the "pastel corner," the bottom one of which features Sheila's works to the left, and mine on the right.

What a great gallery space! Lucky is whoever gets any one of your paintings under their tree.
"Winter Light" is a good example of all the right color choices. You're so good at that! I think it's your best magic trick.

"Winter Light" is a tour de force! High key neutrals contrasted with small amounts of pure hue make it glow. I love the abstracted design.
Congratulations on your exhibition! It's great to see your work hanging in the gallery venue.

Thank you, Jean, Sam and Kathy.

Thanks, jean! I will try!

Sam, these colors were chosen on the fly, as I composed. I remember responding to the field, and the low angled light.

Kathy! Thanks for looking at this work, and your kind comments. You hit the nail on the head - high key neutrals in high gear.

"Winter Light" is quite splendid. I love the colours, but even more, I'm fascinated by your emphasis on the picture plane while retaining that great sense of light throughout.

Good luck with the exhibition!

Sorry to have missed you at the event, Casey! I really liked how our work looked together.

Casey Klahn said...

Not the first time we've shown together, Sheila. Best wishes.

These past few posts have garnered a lot of comments, and I'm going to answer each one. Except, today, my littlest is getting over her tonsillectomy.

Congratulations on having your work at the Tinman Gallery, Casey - it looks like a nice show. This is a really compelling pastel. I find myself going back again and again to study the color arrangements and composition. Beautiful work!
