For the visual artist, a solo show is a season of concentrated effort, a time to give it your all. Centered around a theme, with discipline you work toward your goal. In a way like a personal olympic feat; or a collection of thoughts that add up to a novel. The creative process takes place in solitude, between you and the canvas. Though given an opportunity, you are happy for the audience. You set out to fill that gallery with the best representations of your work before the time is up, before it is opening night.
Considering these the heart of the show, I wanted them front and center.

Gallery Night in Fairhope (AL) draws a crowd to the Eastern Shore Art Center where my "Ways of Water" show filled the Courtyard Gallery.
I was fortunate to meet this buyer who selected "Ladies in Waiting" (top right in photo).
