Last night’s group show held a lot of excited people on a crisp Arizona winter night. {9} The Gallery presented the opening reception of Tiny Works | Tiny Dances II, featuring over 100 artists whose work is sized 12″ x 12″ or under. The show will continue till December 16th. If you missed it, come back in two weeks for Third Friday, December 16th. 1229 Grand Ave, Phoenix, Arizona 85007. I will be attending then too. My following four works are included.

When I arrived at 6 sharp, the first piece of four, Inspirit, had already sold, and so was the case with many of my fellow artists’ works. The space filled up quickly with a happy, enthusiastic crowd of art lovers and it was a good time to be with old friends and new. It’s an honor to exhibit alongside talented Arizona artists such as Sky Black, Dan Pederson, Cindy Schnackel and Onna Voellmer.  Emotionally expressive modern dances were performed by Nicole L. Olson, Elisa Cavallero and Travis Richardson at the gallery’s center. Thank you to all who came out to visit! Here are some snaps I took along the way.

This is my most recently completed painting. To me, it feels like a joyful celebration that rises up amidst a very challenging year. Swell The Life, 2016, 16 7/16″ x 13 1/8″, watercolor, ink and pastel.

I have another painting, The Gift, that will continue showing in Herberger Gallery at Arizona Center’s Home For The Holidays exhibition through January 16th. Stop by at 455 N. 3rd Street, Suite 1200 to see this and many other Arizona artists’ works. Connie and A O Tucker have done a lovely job of curating and hanging this show for the winter season.

This evening I turned down the lights and said goodnight to this work in progress. Goodnight to you too.
