Home for the Holidays art show

I'm thrilled to be one of the participating artists in the upcoming "Home for the Holidays" art show at Vox Sacramento! I'll have the following new pieces on display during the December Second Saturday Art Walk.

"Soul Mates" is based on the pair of mourning doves who nibble for food in my dewy backyard each day. I enjoy the soothing sounds of their cooing while I sit on my back patio drinking coffee. Acrylic on canvas. Measures 11 x 14.

"Family Reunion" was inspired by a conversation that occurred during a road trip from South Carolina to Florida with my mom. Whenever we saw a group of birds gathered along the telephone wires, my mom would shout out, "Look! It's a family reunion!" Acrylic on canvas. Measures 8 x 10.

"One" was inspired after a recent journal entry. One lone bird sits upon an old and barren tree. And while there is sadness at that exact moment, the rising sun sheds light on a new beginning. Acrylic on canvas. Measures 11 x 14.

"Proud." This wintery cardinal is happy that it's almost Christmas! Acrylic on canvas. Measures 8 x 10.

This reunion art show will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2009 from 5-10pm and will feature many of the artists who have shown at Vox since its inception. And for the art collectors, this is a great opportunity to get a deal on some original art for those on your holiday gift giving list! Also, proceeds from a silent auction/drawing that evening will raise funds to support Vox and the work that they do in our art community.
