Creative Convergence Opening Feb 12th & 13th

This Friday and Saturday (Feb 12th and 13th) are the two Receptions for the Creative Convergence painting trip I was part of this past fall. Friday will be at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and Saturday will be at the Addison Art Gallery, both in Orleans MA. So plan on being there... I heard there may be Margaritas........?...
Also check out this months Issue of American Art Collector (issue #52) , there is coverage of the trip and a bunch of photos of the guys and their paintings. (If you look real close on page 123 on the bottom right of the bottom right photo you cans see my tripod and a glimpse of my left hand.) I still don't believe I was able to be part of such an experience.... I've said it a couple times but THANK YOU! to all the 14 other guys on this trip for making me feel welcome and especially Frank Gardner his wife Juli for making Mexico feel like home. See you at the Opening!
Quote: “I never decided at all to be an artist; being an artist seems to have happened to me.”Anne Truitt
Quote #2 (bonus!) "The painter makes real to others his innermost feelings about all that he cares for. A secret becomes known to everyone who views the picture through the intensity with which it is felt."Lucien Freud.

sizes of these pieces are in order top to bottom, 11x14, 6x8,8x10, 8x10.

i like the second quote - was just thinking about that yesterday, oddly!
i like the bottom painting best (i love your portrayal of the different lights, the twilight and the town lights - what a great thing, this painting!!!), though i like all of them - they're ethereal. : )

(i'm glad you linked this on fb! thanks, Dan!)

i sure wish i could have seen the show - i'd've loved seeing all those paintings together!

Dan, I am crazy about your work. every time I see a post in my reader I think ,"Oh sweet! Dan's got a new one" :)
BTW-Seems like you're still some photos that are somewhat blurry though. Have you thought about scanning them? I get real clear consistent results that way.

Hi Solveg, what else can I say, Thank you!

HI Jeff, Thank you so much! that great to hear.. as for the photos... these are a little old, well old enough that they have were out of the studio before my recent photo epiphany. from here out they should be good.

and still they come, more beautiful pieces to please the eye. My favourite is the third, love that strip of light down the upright.

Hi Dan,
Man, I could look at these all day. That sunset sure is great, I don't think you've posted one before.
The subtle tone shifts in the light post are great. This one is unexpected!
Hope your show is going well!

All nice but, I particularly like the lamp post. Simply stated. Your brushwork is interesting and vibrant.

Dan Corey said...

Hey Kyle, Thanks for the compliment! The show is going great, its an honor just to hang on the same walls as these guys..:))

HI Mary, Thank you. The lamp post found a new home on opening night, that was a fun piece to paint.
