Fun Night

Last night my friends Bill and Deb had an art opening at a lovely little gallery called Bishops Stock. Here are John and our fellow peace marcher Su (aka the awesome sign maker) outside the gallery.

Let's go inside and see what's shaking...
Ahh, a true art apreciator!
(Click on the pictures to see the art better.)

Here are a couple of Bill's paintings. John loves the top one. Bill's work is awesome. I love the light and shadow and precision of his paintings.

John and Deb.

This is one of my favorites of Deb's but there are many, many, many of hers and for that matter Bill's that I love. This one is called "Mexa-chi".

The gallery owner with Deb and Bill.

After viewing the art we retired to Bill and Deb's house for a little Par-tay.

That's right, we got a little crazy.

And then! my friends surprised me with a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to moi! Mm, mm, mm... good friends are good to have. (And my b-days not until Monday.)

Grade for the evening: Perfection.

Hi Mary, not sure what to make of the painting of the woman - Dali, Picasso or "Jung"

Is that a woman who has nightmares about creepy hands all over her ...
or does she dream about an orgy at a massage parlour

See how that painting got you thinking? That's success if you ask me. I think everyone interprets the painting differently. It means whatever it means to you.

Looks like a nice Gallery!

I'm with you on what the paintings mean/express......there's really no other way to view Art of any kind.

Thanks for sharing the experience!

Happy Birthday {{{hugs}}}

Love those paintings, I'm getting ready to head back to the bush so I'll take more time to look at them when I get time.

Oils? Acrylics? Whatever, they are gorgeous - all of them. If people are commenting and they haven't clicked on the pic to enlarge - it's a must. It's good to have multiple birthday parties before, during and after the big day. When are they going to do a showing of your work?

Mary, those pictures are very impressive, and Happy Birthday to you. What does that make it, 29 or 30?

Donnie- It's always good to be with these folks.

Coffee- We're in total agreement.

No- You don't have to have a positive reaction.
(And trust me, I only post the exciting stuff. If you notice they are few and far between.)

WT- Thankyou!

Peacechick- Thanks for the suggestion. Yes you must click on them. All Bills are oil but I believe some of Debs may be acrylics. Not positive on that.

Katie- You're home!

Kvatch- Why thank you.

Earl-Hey I like you Earl.

Msliberty- Thank you. It really was a great evening.
