“The Colors of Jazz” and an unidentified patron
From left – “Scrapple from the Apple,” “Good Morning, Heartache,” “Doxy,” “Night in Tunisia,” “Billie’s Bounce, ”
“Yardbird Suite,” “Con Alma,” “Have You Met Miss Jones?” and “Unsquare Dance.” Beyond that, I don’t have the map.
The show is up and not without incident. But I’ve sold one painting -the one center in the picture, “Night in Tunisia.” In a gallery show, the paintings stay up with a “sold” note on the title card.
Being an artist is about many things. One of them is the nuts and bolts work that comes after the painting is done — the announcement, the p. r., making the title cards, measuring measuring measuring. Adding the hardware and wires and in this case adding invisible fish line so I could suspend them from the “S” hooks along the molding, balanced on a not high enough step stool. Then levelling. Nope, I didn’t try to get them even…I call it improvisation.
But it’s up and I’m happy. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by. If you’re not and see something you like — remember pictures are 2-D and paintings are 3-D — let me know. Everything’s for sale and can be shipped.
And if anybody recognizes that head, let me know.

Thank you, dear Janice. It was a success and I’m happy I had a chance to show the art here. You’ve seen my other shows!
I’m avoiding the television set on this momentous election day and catching up with old e-mails…I think it is great you have/had your art on display in Corvalis. It appears to have been a great success.
