we're sealing the floor, so the studio wasn't open for the 3rd Thursday. It rained all day yesterday, and quite heavily at times, so I'm a little nervous about checking to see how well the seal took. Have to wait until Friday before we can paint on a finish. In the meantime, everything is stacked in piles in one half of the studio, so the painting below was finished at home.

The opening was a success with many attendees, friends, music and food. The gallery is open Thursday thru Sunday and the show will be up thru March, so if you get a chance stop by. In addition to my 3-D works are really wonderful watercolor paintings by gallery members and lovely art quilts by another guest artist.

For Winter 2011, Gallery Concord announces its newest show, "Serenity," which will run from January 5 to March 25, 2012. The opening night reception will be Friday, January 6th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Light refreshments and beverages will be served, and music provided by The Dana St. Jazz Trio.The "Serenity" show will feature Wendy Oliver, a watercolor artist from Walnut Creek, California. Wendy Oliver is a Bay Area native and grew up in Walnut Creek. She always enjoyed Art Classes all through her school years. After her children were grown she decided to return to her passion for painting, signing up for a class as a birthday present to herself from local artists to learn techniques and develop her own style. The mediums she uses are Acrylics, Oils, or Watercolor. She especially loves to create realistic paintings of beautiful landscapes, flowers & wildlife. Wendy always takes her camera with her because she believes that you never know when you are going to see something that will inspire you to paint it. She has taken lots of art workshops and classes for the past 20 years locally & across the United States and Europe with many famous artists. The artists she has studied with include Charles White, Gary Bergren, Leslie Wilson, Myrna Wacknov, Nancy Collins, Sandi Delahanty, Nicholas Simmons, Kathleen Conover, Janet Rogers & Cheng-Khee Chee. She has won many awards at the Contra Costa County Fair, Alameda County Fair, and Art Association Shows. Wendy Oliver is an active member of the Alamo DanvilleArt Association, Blackhawk Gallery, Las Juntas Artists, East Bay Artists Guild, CWA &GalleryConcord,Toll Bridge Tolers & Professional Women's Business Exchange.
