Hot Spots

March 2, 2013 § 7 Comments

The show is up and looks richer for having mixed and matched 7 oil paintings with 5 VERY NEW gouache & ink resist paintings of 3 fish out of water, 1 latte flying with a gull and 1 donut – with sprinkles – on a beach. I’ll take you around the place so you can see.

This first shot is a wall behind the busy baristas. Heidi, owner of Blackbird Bakery, told me it’s best to start by hanging a favorite in a hot spot – that place where a customer can’t help but see your art. I hung “To Go” (red flying coffee mug with a bird design in latte foam) in such a spot. Things evolved from there, much quicker than usual, as I had two wonderful friends along to assist. Thank you Tam & Gunda – and Heidi, too!

On the north wall above the coffee condiments,”Raspberry Beret” hangs in the hot spot.

Blackbird has warm wooden seating tucked against picture windows to the town at large and Winslow Way, the main street you walk to catch the ferry to Seattle. This very narrow buttery wall with colorful window trim and twinkle lit garland makes a nice spot.

Tam found the perfect spot for “The Masking Tape”. Even the frame matches the high wooden booth back.

Love this pumpkin wall between the lime door trim. Might call it a ‘pop’ spot for how it pops those colors from the painting, which is pretty wild, as if I’d chosen a palette to match this exact spot some day.
