OUTSIDE THE WHITE CUBE EXHIBIT IN NEW HOPE, PA AND LAMBERTVILLE, NJ

What a treat it was to take a day trip to the town of New Hope, PA, with its tree-lined streets, eclectic shopping and riverside dining.  


The icing on the cake was to be in New Hope during the Outside the White Cube exhibit, a two-town display of art along the Delaware River. Local artist, Gary Giordano, is curating the show that includes the work of 24 local artists and is on display through October 17, 2018.

After lunching al fresco at a local restaurant, my beloved and I walked along Main Street, taking in the beautiful outdoor public art.  One of the first paintings we happened upon was that of artist friend, Dar James, titled "One Love."


 Mark Pullen's contribution is an oil painting titled "Spring Idyll, 2018."


Gordon Haas painted "Friday Night Fireworks."


Gary Giordano's oil painting is titled "The Artist."


I would highly recommend a trip to New Hope, Pennsylvania.

POLKA DOTS AND HAPPY THOUGHTS

UPDATE: Sold and now living in Australia. I love snail mail, patterned socks, crunchy Cheetos and polka dots! I mean, who doesn't like 'dots?

I have been working on a series of small floral mini oil paintings, all with polka dotted backgrounds.  They are the most fun to paint!  I surveyed my Facebook and Instagram followers to ask if one work in progress painting should have 'dots or no 'dots.  I will be sure to let you know the verdict.

In the meantime, here are four little polka dotted gems --- all original oil paintings on stretched canvas, 6 x 6 inches (15.24cm x 15.24cm) x .5".

Blue Polka, available HERE

Original oil painting with a cobalt blue bottle and sweet white flowers against a blue and white polka dotted background!

 Amber Reflections, available HERE.
