A little more of Paula’s art

Paula and two of her shell paintings

I was cleaning out my photo files and came across this one. It was taken at the opening of my first solo show, held last year in The Contemporary Museum Cafe. The show, called “Fabric Actions,” consisted of 60 pieces; 48 of them were small (six-by-six inch) hand dyed fabric on canvas. The rest were acrylics on canvas.

Behind me are two of my shell paintings. There are four altogether and they are currently hanging at Pacific Home if you want to see them “in person.” They were hung there by Fine Art Associates, who represent my work.

BTW, that’s a swing coat of my own design. It’s cotton pique, appliqued with Marimekko trees. It’s from when I had my design studio ten years ago – but it’s still in great shape.

In addition, when my friend Gail DeLeon read in a previous blog that I had sold my mango and papaya paintings and didn’t keep a photo of them, she sent me a photo she shot herself. Here they are:

Paula with her mango (left) and papaya (right) paintings. They were sold in the Louis Pohl Gallery.

I have been working with a brighter palette since the shutdown of The Honolulu Advertiser. Perhaps it’s an attempt to make the days look sunnier. It will be fun to see if my palette changes in Greece. Aegean turquoise, perhaps?
