I went to the Inner Fall Exhibit reception tonight at Framations Gallery. I did not win a prize, but I did jury in to the show, which is great for me at this point. Above is Autumn on Oak Street a watercolor that juried in. Fee Fee Cemetery was an oil painting that juried in, but I cannot find the jpg right now.
The flight into Egypt is a biblical event described in the Gospel of Matthew (2:13), in which Joseph fled to Egypt with his wife Mary and infant son Jesus after a visit by Magi because they learn that King Herod intends to kill the infants of that area. The episode is frequently shown in art, as the final episode of the Nativity of Jesus in art, and was a common component in cycles of the Life of the Virgin as well as the Life of Christ.

Got to talk to a lot of folks at the Bridgeton Arts and Crafts Fair. Thanks to the folks who bought things. I hope the folks who took cards and were looking for paintings find something on my website or contact me for a special order. It takes a while to be sure you want a specific painting. I have read that it takes about three looks--so I hope folks will go to the website and keep looking.

If you are choosing a painting for a loft, multiple story space, below a balcony or on a cathedral ceiling space; think about choosing a gallery wrapped painting instead of a framed painting. A gallery wrapped painting that the artist has continued the painting around the edges can present interesting new aspects when seen from above, below or different angles. Looking down from a balcony, painting continued around the top edge gives a new feel to the painting rather than seeing it straight on. The painted side and top edges change the look as one goes up the stairs.
