Last September, I posted Updates at 140 D — A year later there are many more updates!
The studio space has been purchased by the glass studio next door at 140 C. And Shelley Pereda, who has held the lease, has decided to leave the studio and bequeath the lease to me–as long as it lasts!
Thankfully, the glass studio owners have no plans to move into this building for at least a year! They are merely raising the rent! (AND that’s one good reason to have an INVENTORY REDUCTION SALE—that sounds so commercial!) The other reason is, I currently rent space to three other artists: Ron Maffett (painting), Barabara Wade (painting), and Lynda Sondles ( silk scarves and fabric art quilts), with space for one more artist. SO even less SPACE for my work.
UNTIL CHRISTMAS, I am selling my work for half the gallery price. Last week I finished the commissioned pieces for Grace Community Church on the book of Revelation and have canvases waiting to continue this series but need more space. I also teach oil and wax workshops which means I have many 12 x 12 inch paintings for sale. Some are abstract layers of color but like most of my work they are rich in metaphor and spiritual meaning.
(The large piece above Put Yourself In The Path of the Wind http://gracecarolbomer.com/artwork/3653220_Put_Yourself_in_the_Path_of_the_Wind.html
was featured in a show called Eastern Breezes this summer at the Andrew Charles Gallery.)
New encaustic monoprints
Using a smooth hotplate I designed the paintings. Then I carefully placed rice papers. (In theses I used Di Chiri 8 x 11 inch paper). Experimented with other surfaces as well. Below encaustic monotype on existing oil monoprint.
And new giclee reproductions of particularly significant paintings. (see website)
