Awkward Exits & Gerber Daisies at Anita Sue Kolman Gallery
Anita Sue's Gerbers and Awkward Exit, both 5.5 x 3" ballpoint and watercolor.
Last night I went to see the new exhibit at Anita Sue Kolman Gallery in the Northrup King Building. Very impressive work -- vibrant and bold, well worth the time to go check it out.
Anita had used small pots of bright Gerber daisies for path-markers on the way to her gallery (if you've ever visited Northrup King, you'll know why folks need a guide!), and so I took a few minutes out to draw one. In ballpoint, because that was what I had. Art doesn't always require sophisticated materials.
Later, heading home, I noticed the red door. An awful lot of people look at what I do and lament, "I can't even draw a straight line!" -- and I always wonder what makes them think I can.
The watercolors for both of these, I added this morning.
