"Snap", at the Lafayette Gallery




Our newest exhibit at the Lafayette Gallery, opening this Tues., is titled "Snap". The idea behind the exhibit is to show how snapshots influence artwork. This can be interpreted many ways, for example, snapshots can be used as a reference for a painting, incorporated into a collage, or partially used for color, or texture ideas, and on , and on. Here is my framed work, ready for hanging, along with two snapshots used for inspiration. Please come by to see our new exhibit!

Good luck on your exhibit. It was fun to see the photo inspirations for your pieces. I would have never thought these scenes could develop into such great paintings.

What a great idea for a show! Your work looks fantastic framed up! I can totally see how you painted these painting from those snapshots - very cool! Good luck!

Hi Nancy - so fun to see the original snapshots and where you took them with color and intensity and how you simplified. Love your floating frames too. Congrats on the exhibit!!!

These are absolutely wonderful! so glad you included the snapshots. How long will the show be hanging? I'm thinking of coming out there in early October.

I too love this idea of "snap". It is fascinating to see the translation you did here. Would love to have seen this exhibit, wish I lived closer!

I like the floating frames too. This is very helpful to someone like me who has trouble transferring photos into paintings.
