Le Nouveau Louvre Art Show at the GNO


JOHN LAPPA/SUDBURY STAR file photo The Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario
 is full to capacity for an earlier Nouveau Louvre exhibit.



Hi everyone!  The holidays are almost upon us and with this time of year comes the GNO's "Le Nouveau Louvre" art show!  There are many wonderful artists exhibiting this yearly show where part of the proceeds raise money to support the gallery for the year, and the rest goes to the artists.  

Pieces of various styles and sizes are each sold  for $200.00.  Of this total, $75 goes to the gallery, and the artist keeps $125.00.  This is a FABULOUS win-win for both the gallery and the artists and is the right way to do a fundraiser using art! I will write about fundraising in my next post . . .


The Sudbury Star wrote an article on the GNO's fundraiser and you can read about it here

You can also have a look at the art currently available at the GNO's website.  I sold one but have a few others available.  Please have a look or stop by and buy some art! If you have someone on your list that you don't know what to buy for, giving an original work is a fabulous gift idea.  :-D

So, have a great time checking out Le Nouveau Louvre!  I will be back soon with a post on art and charities, which can be a very controversial subject.  See you soon!

Fall Pumpkins Oil Still Life


Pumpkins
6 x 6 Oil

Hi everyone!  It's that time of year with fall colours and fall harvests, which of course, inspires art.  What's not to love at this time of year with all of the rich warm tones which in a way betray the approaching cold and greys of winter.

This painting is a little 6 x 6.  I keep wanting to paint larger pieces with pumpkins and try various still life arrangements, but can never completely settle on one to paint.  So, I satisfied the need to paint by doing a small quick study.   Sometimes that's all it takes.  Maybe next year I'll have the larger painting that I want.

Right now, I have violins on my mind.  One violin painting sits on my easel waiting to be finished, but I have the urge to start another fun violin piece with an added special something.  I've been asked by many people many times to paint this special something and now I feel the need.  I'm inspired.  I gotta do it.

Until then, take care everyone and hopefully I'll be back really soon with that special painting, but I don't want to rush.  :-)

Pear, Daily Oil Painting


Pear No 3
6 x 6 Oil

Today I was compelled to paint a pear, backlit by window light.  I love painting backlit scenes.  It's something I've always done, even back when I was painting horses regularly.  There's something about backlighting that is dramatic and captivating.  I hope you enjoy this one, if you do, the link for the eBay auction is in the painting's description.  Have a great evening!  <3

There will be many more of these paintings to come in the future, some larger, and they even might have some character development and stories to tell. Keep watching!
