Artsy Happenings In Columbia SC Nov & Dec 08


So much is happening in the art community this fall it's hard to keep up with it all even for the ARTSAILS1 Blog.

The painting here is loaded with holiday colors and even a touch of snow for the complete effect. "Healing" is a mixed media texturized painting on a 20x16 canvas; featuring, burgundy, gold, and green. I was on a second story loft painting with a great friend at her Mountain home in front of floor to ceiling windows with a breathtaking panorama view overlooking the NC mountains. "Healing" by Jean Bourque c 2008 for purchase inquiries click here.
