Ok… I’m teasing you with only three paintings… Click HERE to see the entire show online… in case you can’t be there… but if you can… GO! I am blown away by the quality of work in this one show. Remember, you have until June 1, 2013 to see the show in person! Look at these paintings… stunners, every single one. Look at that brushwork, those fabulous colors, the composition… wow!
If you are in the Portland, Maine area, stop by the Greenhut Galleries, located on Middle Street. Colin is an immensely talented (and down to earth) award winning artist and his work continues to grow, just when you think it can’t possibly be any better he adds a twist. I love that! Try not to miss the gallery talk scheduled for Saturday, May 11 at 1:30PM. I’ve never had the opportunity to be there in person, but I have listened to Colin online, and he’s FABULOUS! Trust me, you’ll want to be there!
If you can’t make it to the show, check out his website, it’s a good one, and definitely read his Journal… Colin is full of fabulous work, and his thoughts are wonderful to read through… check it out! One more image to entice you…
Here’s a blip about Colin, in case you aren’t familiar! This is from the Greenhut Galleries email of Colin’s show:
Colin Page was raised in Baltimore, MD and attended the Rhode Island School of Design. He transferred to Cooper Union with a concentration in painting. Upon graduation, he lived in New York City for three years where he was an active member in the art community. In search of a more diverse landscape, Page moved to Maine where he has devoted his time to making art and teaching.Page feels that every painting should be as personal as painting a self-portrait. His goal is to capture the spark of excitement that called him to set up his easel whether it is the subject’s vibrant color or the atmospheric space. Through his paintings, he shares the poetry of experience…..each painting must breathe and have a life of its own.Page states, “I want to balance moments of specific realism, with more intuitive paint handling. My paintings are based on the subject I am experiencing, sometimes through direct observation, and sometimes through expressive brushwork and color. My favorite situation is a painting that has both on the same canvas. “In addition to making art, Colin Page also teaches a number of very popular painting workshops across the state. He was the 2009 winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Door County Plein Air Festival.
Catch you back here tomorrow!
