I had started this piece and was trying to decide how to finish it. At the same time, I was working on some other pieces specifically for our exhibit at Rail Walk Studios & Gallery called "The RED Show" and had the sudden inspiration that all this piece needed was a bit of red. That did the trick!

|Red Sky Sunset #2|
acrylic on canvas, 6"x 6"
The painting above is one of seven that I have on display in The RED Show, a group exhibit by artists at Rail Walk Studios & Gallery in Salisbury, NC. The painting I posted here on January 29th is also one that I have on exhibit in the show. Our opening reception was last night and we had a very good turnout, even though it was a cold Thursday night with lots of competition from other events and activities around Salisbury. One of our visitors commissioned me to do a watercolor painting for her. A couple whom I had invited to the reception and who purchased a large piece from me in December 2009 told me they want to commission a series of three paintings to hang together in their living room. I'll be going to their home in the next week or so to see where they want them to hang so I can get an idea of the scale.
The RED Show was scheduled to end on February 26th, but the art exhibit by members of Rowan Arts Council that had been scheduled for March was cancelled, so we're leaving The RED Show up through Saturday, March, 26th.
About The RED Show:
If any month is associated with any color, the month is February and the color is red. All of us artists at Rail Walk painted, sculpted, and interpreted the color red for this show. The color red has the longest wavelength of all the colors that are perceived by the human eye. Red invokes strong emotions from bliss to rage. We hope you will feel bliss as you look at our work. The walls are filled with red!
Rail Walk Studios & Gallery is located in the Rail Walk Arts District in Salisbury, NC, at 409 Lee Street, and is open Saturdays, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and by appointment. For more information about RWS&G, visit www.railwalkgallery.com.
