Good News Day!

I just got my acceptance letter from the 25th Annual All Colorado Art Show at the Curtis Arts & Humanities in Greenwood Village, CO. It's a wonderful venue and the juror is a curator from the Denver Art Museum. So I was sooooo pleased to be accepted. The exhibit runs from June 14-August 1, 2008.

Congratulations, Cindy! I love this piece - the spoon and cherries stand out nicely against the blue background. Very creative name, too!

Cindy said...

Thank you Beth! See you when you get back from France...lucky you!!

Thank you Susan! I so admire your hour long portraits that I've been seeing on your blog. And your gallery/studio is heaven-sent!

Thanks Ann!

Thank you Holly! I have a whole list of physics/quantum mechanics/cosmology that I wanted to interpret into artwork. Now if I could only find the time.

Rebecca said...

Congrats, Cindy! :D ...so happy for you!

Cindy said...

Thank you Rebecca! That means alot from you. :-)

Jeanette said...

Congratulations too Cindy, that's fabulous news!

And I LOVE the painting, the colours are wonderful. Now how did you come up with the idea for this one?

Teresa Mallen said...

Congratulations Cindy! Good news day indeed!! Such an enjoyable piece. I love the gradation in the background and the way you incorporated cherry colours into it! Bring on the physics/quantum mechanics/cosmology series!!

Marsha Robinett said...

This is just great, congratulations. By the way...this piece is wonderful. Love the colors and composition, quite creative. Did you work from a still life set-up or a photograph?

Kendra said...

Congratulations, Cindy! Like your concept and composition very much. You know I'm a fan of cherries : )

Catherine said...

Congratulations Cindy ! This is great and you really deserve it.

I'm sorry, I didn't come here for a while ... I had to prepare my forthcoming exhibitions.
But I am back now and it is always a great pleasure to see your beautiful art work !

Thank you so much Jeanette! I love physics and other related subjects so I had this idea of visualizing String Theory, hence things on strings. When I started the photo shoot (about 400 pics) I tried all kinds of things until I stumbled on the little twist of the cherry on the spoon appearing to be on a different plane than the cherries hanging on strings.

Thank you so much Teresa! I thought the background would be easy but actually the gradation of values was really hard ;-)

Hi Marsha...thank you! I sketched from the real life set up and then worked from the photo. It took me 6 months to complete this piece. The cherries were long gone ;-)

Thank you Kendra! I love your new piece with the cherries!

Hi Catherine, so good to hear from you. Thank you so much for your comments and support. I wish you much success on your upcoming exhibitions.
