Almost Show Time

"Remember" Acrylic and Mixed Media on 9 x 12 inch wood panel.

A couple more pieces from the April show. I spent one part of the day making labels and the other part assembling dried flower bouquets.  Tomorrow we set up the gallery and I'm so excited to see it all come together.  I will be sure to take some photographs to share with you here.

Upcoming Show!

I am so pleased to share that I have an solo show in April at Compass Gallery in Salem, Oregon.  I am incredibly thankful to the artists/owners (Bonnie Hull, Tory Brokenshire, and Dayna Collins) for inviting me into their gorgeous gallery.  It is an amazing opportunity and I have been working like crazy these last few months to generate all new work to fill the space.  

The show will open this coming Friday, April 1st, and will run until May 4th.  The reception will be on April 14th, from 5 to 7 p.m. and will be at the same time as our usual Open Studios (which will take place up the stairs from this gallery).  

Here is the blurb from the show:

"Memento Mori: A Reminder of the Shortness and Fragility of Life and Memory," a series of new work by Elizabeth Bauman inspired by vintage photographs and decaying bouquets of flowers exploring the impermanence of life and the fragility of memory.

I will be sharing with you here some of those new pieces over the coming weeks.  (The last of which, on paper, will be inspiring a new group of pieces over the next couple of months, but more on that later.)

Here is the piece from the show card and one other:

Lorna - A New Painting

"Lorna" Acrylic on 12 x 12 inch wood panel.
I will have some fun news to share soon (upcoming April...), but until then I wanted to finally get this painting posted.  This is "Lorna" and she is on a wood panel 12 x 12 inches, painted in acrylic.  You can now find her in my shop.

Purely By Chance - A New Painting

"Purely By Chance" Acrylic on 9 x 12 inch wood panel.

I am sharing with you a new painting that is now in my shop.  It is titled "Purely By Chance" and was inspired, in part, by a Gainsborough painting.  I rather liked the idea of one of my ladies in one of his landscapes, though a slightly altered landscape.  

Tonight I will be down at my studio for Art After Dark with a Compass Gallery reception, a new gallery has just opened as well, and more...from 5-7 p.m., Thursday March 10, at 1313 Mill St in Salem, Oregon.
