Opening at The Most Unlikely Place--GWR Band

 Saturday was an awesome evening at The Most Unlikely Place in Lewellen, Nebraska.  The left photo shows some of my art on the south wall.  Notice the cornice.  They have painted wonderful words all around the large room in a shadow style that looks like carved stone!  The other photo shows the George William Ray Band warming up in the music area at the east end of the gallery/cafe.  They were wonderful...a top-notch performance after spending all day in the sun and winning medals at the Ogallala track meet.  Thanks guys!  The place was full for the evening, with lots of people traveling over 80 miles for this artist reception/concert/gourmet meal.  I am humbled and grateful.

Here, on the left is the latest postcard collage, titled Moonlight Sonata.  The music in it is a gel transfer from a line in Beethoven's fourteenth Sonata.  I am amazed at how beautifully this turned out.  It sat for several weeks in the confusing, unfinished state shown on the right.  I couldn't decide what to do next...that's the miracle of art...and especially of appears and evolves.  I wonder how and why I make the brushstrokes and additions of ephemera that I do.  There is definitely a Spirit leading the process. Patience and flexibility are essential.

Make your reservations (308-778-9557) at The Most Unlikely Place for dinner Saturday night.  If you can't make dinner, the George WIlliam Ray Band will play from 6:30-8:30.  You will love this great venue for art, music, food and fun.  Moonlight Sonata will be a part of my show there through the month of April.  They are open 8-2 Wednesday-Saturday.
