Art Show :: Vernissage

Let the painting tell you what it needs.
— Charles Reid

When my husband and I travel to an unknown country, we let the city guide us on our first day. It is with this habit that we realize that a city is a good “biking” city, or rather a walking city because of its open air markets, or something else and thus, when I read Charles Reid’s quote, I liked it. I am slowly starting to gather some of my pieces together to get them framed, and this one is a contender. I am starting to gather them together to get them framed as we are having a Department Art Show on Monday September 8, 2014 at John Abbott College and this will be my first ever!

Quand nous voyageons dans une nouvelle ville, nous laissons la ville nous guider. C’est de cette façon que nous voyons qu’une ville est une bonne ville pour se promener à bicyclette, ou si elle a beaucoup de marchés ouverts, elle est plus propice à la marche à pied… et c’est pour ça que j’aime ce que Charles Reid dit. Je commence à tranquillement regrouper mes peintures pour les faire cadrer car nous avons un Vernissage lundi le 8 septembre 2014 à John Abbott College — j’ai hâte car ça va être la première fois de ma vie que je participe à ce style d’événement!

  1. This one really stopped me from scrolling. It’s beautiful. It has those Charles Reid colors, but you have a style clearly your own, and just as enchanting as Reid’s. I am going to study under him for a week in Boone, NC in October. I’ve been waiting over a year for this class. Thank you for sharing this stunning piece. I can’t wait to see more on your blog.
