Goddess Salon opening at my place- Welcome

(I have had a hard time posting lately for a few reasons. One is that the new updated post editor makes is 3 times as difficult to arrange the images on the page. I thought it was make posting easier.) Anyway, I have been burning the candle at both ends in preparation of my Salon and finally - here it is on view.... Please enter- walk down the side path to the back and into my private Goddess Salon. I've been incorporating this theme since last Spring. I 've expanded on it in numerous ways-  Gilded Goddesses, Water Goddesses, Nereid Goddesses, Water Nymphs, assemblages, constructions, Art cards and more. I will continue with the theme too. So take a look at what's inside. I will be posting my paintings for the next week on my regular Daily Painting blog where you can see them up close. 
The traffic is never heavy when I hold my Salons but that's ok because I am growing this yearly presentation slowly but surely each year. I keep trying to promote and get the word out about my event. Eventually it will become a destination for people to visit when they come to Hudson. I am also letting out the word that studio visits are possible with prior arrangements.

Have a Mexican Chocolate Chile cookie baked by my Mom....hope you enjoyed your visit.

Art Opening at Basilica - Artist Arthur Price

Here is a walk around in the Basilica space looking at one of the best shows I have ever seen. The work is by Arthur Price, an Artist from Alabma. You can see more of this work on his website:
Click on the pics to see close up details-

I have gone back several times to wander through the cavernous space looking at these works. On his website in the slideshow, you can see some photos of him in his studio working. You might think that he has a large studio space to work on the scale but it's not as big as you might envision it to be. See some more photos below of the paintings.

WINDOWS ON WARREN - preview of Artwork

Here is my installation titled "Corrugated Couture Construction". I love working with corrugated cardboard and have made various sculptures in this medium in the past couple of years. This is a whimsical garment inspired by my passion for fashion.Years ago I was a designer of women's clothing. That desire has not faded, it is still alive in me. The difference is that in the present, I don't have the patience to sew. But I do have the inclination to use hot glue- one of the best inventions ever! I get immediate gratification.

Here are some other Artists in stallations.
More on all these happenings throughout the week - Stay tuned...
