I smile as I share the news that my painting aired on CBS Sunday Morning on July 8th.  Smiling because they
included it after a segment about the heat wave that has gripped a large part of the states this summer.  I'm not sure that I'd really want  people to remember it because of our extreme temperatures.  

Oh well,  it does glow.  Although we expect the sun to be stationary, I created this one to suggest it has but one way to go.  Amazing how our mood influences the art.  I was feeling the heat of a particular difficult  situation.

I actually painted it working at Studio 14 Gallery.  People would stop to observe for a while.   This is when I met a very talented Artist by the name Ben Fry.  Hes is an incredible watercolor artist and I thoroughly enjoyed see his work some weeks later.  The journey continues...and its good.

Artist Reception Rusty Harden July 13 4 - 7

"Gentle Release" is one of the 42 original paintings that are on Exhibit in the Lobby Gallery of the Fifth Third Center downtown in Dayton.  The 42 paintings are of four different styles and mediums.  It is unusual for me to exhibit the different styles together.  It works here because of the amazing layout of this fabulous lobby.

When Arlene called and invited me to exhibit in the Lobby Gallery, I decided the timing is perfect.  It has been ten years since I decided to start an art business and this year has been full of exciting events, classes, and I've created work that I am very proud to show.

The last time I had art work in downtown Dayton it was at the CADC.  I liked the constant activity that Christy was bringing to the gallery.  Sometimes life changes happen and the wise adjust.  Trying to live wisely, I made the adjustments and later reemerged at Studio 14 Gallery in Tipp City.  I'm loving the gallery work there and a full schedule of classes.

Also exhibiting artwork at Wombat Art Gallery in Waynesville, I'd say I'm busy.

Its the right time to celebrate all of the my efforts, supporters and friends.  And Downtown Dayton is the place to do it.  Hope there is a big turn out.

Thank you to everyone.
