Jo M. Orise Art Update for August and September 2013

Blue Fog with Gulls, watercolor by Jo M. Orise

Good news! I sold four paintings at the Aldermere Farm Art Show and Sale event, August 10, 2013! The Aldermere Show is a one-day, once-a-year event. My first showing with the Farm. Proceeds from the show are shared with the Farm, which is a non-profit organization. Always glad to help.

More good news, I am now displaying work for sale at the Brown Bag Cafe, Rockland, Maine  for the month of August, and will be there for the month of September as well! Come visit! Take a painting home and enjoy your new window to an artist’s vision.

Presently, I am working on a few compositions in my brain and can’t wait to grab a pencil and brush.

Be happy. Love your neighbor. Remember YOU are someone’s neighbor too.

Smile in your mirror every day.

In addition, I have one-man-show in the dining room of  The Brown Bag Restaurant / Cafe, 606 Main Street, Rockland, ME for the month of July.
This is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in Rockland, Maine. http://www.thebrownbagrockland.com/

People with a taste for great food flock the restaurant every day.

Come to the shows to support the other local artists and me. If you purchase a painting, part of the proceeds are donated to the Soup Kitchen. What a great excuse to buy a new painting—from me of course.




If you see my art on display at either location, drop a line, tell me what you think. 

Oh, I know the banana painting is ‘different’. I let my imagination loose. Hunger for art and food—how do I tie the two together? Ah! Food on the beach of course! Therefore “Monhegan Bananas” emerged from the canvas. It is a 7×7″ gallery wrap painting. That means the painting continues around the edges of the canvas.

The other painting, is Curtis Light. It is on display at the Small Wonder Gallery, Camden, Maine. It is a cute 5×5″ gallery wrap painting as well. I just love ocean waves. They are so dynamic and difficult to paint. But I’m working at it. My work can be seen there for the season.

I also have art work hanging at the Store Upstairs Gallery in Port Clyde, Maine.
