Hay Bales in Setting Sun
The LA Art show was fun as usual, but crowded! We went on Saturday instead of Friday and paid the price (of crowds) for it. But we laughed our fool heads off and oohed and awed at various pieces. She likes really textural things and I like really smooth work but we came to an agreement over quite a few. James Neil Hollingsworth had some represented and it was great to see them in person up close (not like in a museum where the guards shush you away). James' work is so "clean" if that makes sense. Absolutely love his work!
I only saw one of Marina Dieul's pieces so maybe I missed more with the crowds. http://marinadieul.com/
And of course, the Arcadia Gallery at the LA Art Show as discussed on http://underpaintings.blogspot.com/ was on my hit list. And I think I actually revisited Matthew Cornell's work again in my dreams! Like I clicked a camera and took a frame of it and then my brain absorbed it more slowly. I would link his blog but he hasn't posted to it for quite a while (sigh.) Its at the bottom of my fav list. No ocean work from him this time, just nocturnes of houses - which thrill me! Anywhoo, fun day overall - crowds or no. Nice to spend it with a long time friend, We may go to the Autry next week for the Western Show! I'll keep you posted!
