"DOWNTOWN" TEXTILE ART, PAINTING STUDIES

"Downtown"  14" X 11",  Lori LaBerge  2017

Completed this week, "Downtown" gives the viewer a cool relaxing entrance of blues and greens leading into a warmer orange/yellow which is more action oriented and has the meaning of intellect, happiness and success. The bright colors lend an optimistic feeling. It is a place I would love to enter.

Framing for it will be discussed and completed in the next month before it is sent off to its new home, an office space in Los Angeles.

"Among the Blue"  14" X 11",  Lori LaBerge  2017  acrylic on canvas

I am creating a group of painting studies experimenting with various textures and techniques. This work is as if one is standing on a balcony, the lower section of diagonal across the piece, looking out upon the tops of city buildings.

More work was delivered to CVA Gallery in Greensboro, NC. Five of my works will be showing from September 1-November 10 in "Cut and Dyed: A Fiber Arts Exhibition". The reception will be September 1 from 6pm-9pm. The gallery is a strong promoter of arts in the community.
