Angels and Saints Show

Last Friday was gallery stroll in Salt Lake City, and the reception for our show at Local Colors - Angels and Saints. If you've been following my blog at all you will know I have been painting saints, a bunch of them.
That night we also had a halloween party at the gallery and dressed up. The picture of the ultra-hot guy is Troy Nuttall who I did the show with. He does really cool photography and then adds photoshop effects to them. He created angels with halos of dandelions and neat things like that. Very artsy and very talented. He dressed up like a 50's biker dude.
The other picture is another one of my saints, the Saint of Motherhood. I dressed up as a Saint, but didn't manage to get a picture of myself. I hope to get some soon. I begged Shanna who also did the show with us to send me some of the pictures of the reception. I will post them when I get them.
Shanna is a master bead weaver and makes glorious jewelry. I am hoping to have a picture of her to share here as well.
We had a great show and thanks to everyone who came by to see us!

Saint of Breast Cancer Awareness

It wouldn't be October without a Saint of Breast Cancer Awareness. This is an 8x10 painting with a pink halo and delicate flowers - pink of course!
Tonight I am working on framing all the paintings for my show. Then tomorrow I hope to paint a couple of small saints. I should have started painting sooner. So many ideas and not enough time!

Saint of Peace

A few more days of painting left before I have to hang my show at Local Colors on Wednesday. I finished this painting yesterday and it is titled 'Saint of Peace'.
Peace is an essential part of my life, a necessity for my own happiness. Although I may not always find it in the world today, I can strive to have it in myself. It is a gift from God that I treasure.

Saint of Great Joy

I have about a week and a half before the opening of my show in Salt Lake. It's time to get cranking, since I don't have the number of paintings done that I would like. However I have a number of them started and I just need to finish them!

This painting is titled Saint of Great Joy. Awhile back I ran across an anonymous quote that reads; "Jumping for joy is the best exercise".

This painting is 14" x 11" and is framed in a gold frame.
