Pop Up Show, June 18th & 19th, 2011
June 9, 2011
For those of you in or who are coming to the Southern California area, I will be having a two-day “pop-up” show at Peet’s Coffee & Tea in Corona del Mar, CA on June 18 & 19, 2011.
The show will present my Tapestri Collection of original watercolors on paper. These paintings are a celebration of my love of gardens and flowers. In these paintings I use vivid colors, intricate motifs and layers that produce wonderful, richly-textured, luxuriant paintings. I really do revel in the blossoms, the leaves and surrounding plants and earth using delicate layering of colors and patterns to achieve rich, concentrated colors, contrasts in detailed brushwork.
I am also very excited about my new collection of lush, hand-painted silk scarves. Using crepe de chine, charmeuse and china silk, I hand-paint the silk with original designs. I have two lines that feature flowers and gardens, one in a very bold design, another I call “Flower Fields”, which is more delicately painted. A third line is more graphic, using circles and dots using color indulgently. This is something I’ve envisioned for a long time, and I’m thrilled to bring my designs to life in wearable art. The flower designs are all unique, signed and numbered, so no two are exactly the same. They’re brand new, so new that I’m just finishing the photography for them, so come be among the first to see them, and own one!
I’ll be at Peet’s both days, on Saturday from 2 pm – 7 pm, and on Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm, and will be happy to show and assist with the selection and purchase of the paintings, my notecard sets, and the scarves.
Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Corona del Mar is located at 894 Avocado Avenue, in the Corona del Mar Shopping Center. The show is open to the public.
Come enjoy the day, have a lovely cup of coffee, celebrate your Father’s, and peruse the art! See you there! Thanks!
