Field of Orbs - Radiant Group Show

Field of Orbs

Radiant - A Group Show
Davis Gallery, Austin, TX
July 15 - August 19, 2017
Reception July 15, 7-9 pm

This weekend, Radiant opens at the Davis Gallery in Austin, TX. A description from the show curator says it best... "This group show is focused on radial compositions, luminescent surfaces, and all things Radiant. The goal of the exhibition is to invite our audience to explore the importance of form, composition, and tone, by studying how each piece fits into the show's parameters. Each artist created new work specifically for this exhibition, or carefully chosen work from the past, which uniquely recognizes the Radiant concept."

As I considered this challenge, sunflowers seemed like one of nature's perfect examples of radiating forms and luminosity. They became my personal focus (and obsession!) as I prepared for the show. I am pleased to have 4 pieces on display, and will post the others in the coming days and weeks. Please stop by the gallery to see the work if you are in town! For purchase inquiries, contact Kevin Ivester,

On a personal note, I will not be at the show reception, as I am off to Italy for the birth of my 3rd grandchild! Hard duty, I know! Grandma duty is the best! More on that as well! ;)

Your sunflowers are radiant indeed, as are you with the news of your arriving grandchild - congratulations Laurel!

Love this sunflower painting because of the perspective. But hey, anyone who gets to go to Italy and get a grandchild out of it, well, that's just the best of all worlds. Have fun!
