Tonight, my critique group got to attend fellow-member, the lovely Michelle's, open to her gallery show.
She had an impressive collection of paintings - big and small.
This large one was "The Cabinet of Curiousities" (my personal favorite. Wish I had an extra $1000).
She had a wonderful variety of subject matter - from architectural landscapes from her month-long stint in Europe last year -
-to drawings of sculpture from the same trip,
to portraits, and still lifes - from her quirky collection of antique-objects-of-great-character.
(The wine-and-cheese table was decorated with some of these fabulous finds).
POBL group - loved the show, and reveled in the after-show Thai food next door together. Critique groups are not just great - they are vital for artistic growth. And sanity. Thanks gals.
