An art day

Later today, Danica and I will be attending the reception at Gerrard Art Space to see a retrospective exhibition of sculptures , drawings and collages by Marcus Berns and Ethel Shoul. I’ll post about that when I have photos.

Meanwhile, here’s a look at my very first Fred Franzen piece. The image area is only about 4″ x 4″. Dry brush on heavy watercolour paper.

It is representative of many, many Franzen works, deftly balanced and seemingly effortless, but drawn from a well of lifelong experience and practice.

    • One of the things I like about you, Brian, is your open mindedness. Even when a kind of art or a political view doesn’t align with your own preferences, you take the trouble to consider them. Your recent visit to the Peggy Guggenheim collection in Venice is a case in point.

  1. I quite liked most of the art in the Venice Gugg, but there was the odd piece I either didn’t understand or looked like it might have been painted by a three year old. Well worth a visit though.
