Paint color names from art supply websites

Pam Farrell, Maybelline
36 x 48"   oil and alkyd on canvas   2010

Late last year, Pam Farrell put out a "Call for Pink". Out of the images she received, Farrell has curated an online exhibition of pieces that feature the color pink in various ways. I have a recent piece included, titled, "Blink".  You can see the entire show here: PINK

"Pink" has been online for two weeks, but I'm running behind on my posts here. Life and art happen (as they should), but I'm slowly catching up to things online and off. Thanks for continuing to stop by!

Studio visit: Dolores Poacelli 12.21.10

Dolores Poacelli worked for many years as a graphic designer before turning her attention to being a full-time artist. She often works in series that can have up to 90-something pieces, depending on how obsessed she is with any certain idea. 

Her studio is dead in the heart of the Italian Market, where she says that she's the "last Italian left", and that's only a slight exaggeration since the demographics of the area have moved over the years from primarily Italian immigrant families to a mixture of asian, Mexican and South American immigrants. 

Dolores Poacelli will be showing work at AxD Gallery in a two-person show with Paul Davis Jones. "Resonances and Reflections" runs from May 20-June 18th, 2011. Opening reception: Friday, May 20th, 5-8pm
