“Rivers” at Wally Workman

Ryan Coover’s River Blooms II, 2011 at Wally Workman Gallery

Last weekend, we finally made it out to Wally Workman Gallery to see the group show “Rivers.”  So much excellent work!  I was particularly interested in seeing two paintings by Ryan Coover, which were whimsical abstractions that seemed to contain microscopic life seen up a little closer.  His two larger paintings were both beautiful and fascinating.

I also really enjoyed the wonderful luminous colors in the large and small abstract oil paintings by Joyce Howell, and the lovely large worlds created by Saliha Staib.  Neighbor Jennifer Balkan’s paintings are always a delight to view; I love her hunky application of paint!

Well, instead of reading my blatherings about how much I enjoyed all of the work in show, why don’t you check out these photos I took of some of the paintings there:

Or view far better photos on the Wally Workman blog, where you can also find out more about all the artists and their work.

Doing a lot of abstract painting lately, EXTREMELY abstract. No brush, paint or canvas, I just think about it.
