THREE NEW PIECES FOR SALE IN CAPE COD
Three new paintings are for sale at the Small Works Holiday Exhibition at Collins Galleries, Orleans, MA. This exhibit, from November 25 through December 8, features many artists regularly represented by the gallery, and a number of guest artists invited to participate.
The exhibit offers small works submitted by some of the most highly respected realist painters in the country today. Michael Klein, Joshua LaRock, Joseph McGurl, Jeffrey T. Larson, Serge Marshenikov, Travis Schlaht, Katie Whipple, and Paul Oxborough are among this outstanding group of artists exhibiting.
I am honored to be included and have submitted three paintings rendered in egg tempera reflecting the scenes often encountered in the rural community where I live.
Egg tempera is a delicate medium made from egg yolks and powdered pigments. It is a water soluble mixture that builds form through layers and layers of thin paint strokes that have an intrinsically transparent nature. Light penetrates down and bounces back up capturing color in a way that is unlike any other medium. The finished painting exhibits a satin egg shell finish with a dry matte quality. The artist must approach it patiently, building slowly through each small stroke of the brush until the image is bound together through thousands of statements of color.
For more information, or to inquire about the purchase of these paintings, please contact Collins Galleries (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit their website.
