I'm happy to announce that several pieces of my work were accepted at R Gallery, which is Boulder's newest gallery on Broadway and Pearl Streets. "Night-Blooming Cereus" is a small painting I did from a photo my former neighbor, Cindy Brohawn, took on the night her cereus bloomed. The flowers bloom only once a year and at night, so it is quite the special occasion when they finally open and release their scent. Here is a little time-lapse video of the opening (and closing) of the flower. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaMIU66aaDo
"Summer" is another piece on display in "Showcase: Boulder Artists". This was from a photo taken by Coot Lake in Longmont, CO. I tried to capture the intensity of the sunlight, the perkiness of two flowers compared to the fatigue of one that was past its prime. On this snow-covered day it is a reminder that the warmth and color of summer days will eventually return.
I have several prints available for purchase at R Gallery as well, including my award-winning raspberries, titled "Freshly Picked". The gallery opened on March 1, but the big party will be on March 30 from 10 am to 8 pm when we have the Grand Opening. R Gallery is located at 2027 Broadway Street, just north of Pearl Street.
