My artwork will be featured in Foot in the Door 5: The Virtual Exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The exhibition will run from November 1, 2020 until January 10, 2021. The exhibition will be entirely online. Held once every ten years, "Foot in the Door" is an open exhibition. Now marking its fourth decade, this exhibition celebrates the talent and diversity of Minnesota's visual artists. The sole curatorial criteria? Each submission must fit within one cubic foot. 

 

I submitted a painting that I felt was sure to get a look from the exhibit organizers. I will post the painting on November 1, when the exhibit goes up.

 

 

 


I have received some photos of the painting Corona, which was recently purchased by an art collector from the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. I love how the colors of the fireplace resonate with the colors in the painting.








An art collector, who lives in Prospect Park in Minneapolis, has purchased the painting "Corona."  Corona is a very textured painting which incorporates acrylics, pumice, gel, whiskey, and silicone. It is 36 inches by 36 inches. I think the painting will look lovely in its new home. 





An art aficionado in Blaine, Minnesota has a painting to add to her collection: "She Walks in Beauty, Like the Night".  This painting is 48 inches high and 24 inches wide, on a gallery canvas.





The painting "Coronavirus will be Defeated by a Mermaid with a Club, a Dog on a Surfboard, an Extinct Five-legged Dinosaur, Two Fish, a Man with a Pipe, a Jellyfish, and the Sun" is now with a person who survived a very bad bout of Coronavirus this past spring. She is better now, back on her feet, and ready to take on the world again. In the meantime, she has this painting to remember her COVID-19 adventure.





My painting "Mid-Century Modern" will be on display at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The convention center will showcase my piece and other fine art from June 2020 to June 2021. This piece of art was selected through the Smartart Program by Art Force.





An art collector in Lexington, Michigan has acquired "They Never Cut Their Grass."

 

I painted this one in 2015. It was going to be a house -- one of those lonely houses on a prairie, kind of -- but I had an idea of two old folks, maybe my grandparents, sitting in the picture, just taking it easy, while the world goes on around them. The grass and wildness grows, the house still stands, and they are content in their togetherness and love.
