Density Drawings -Methodic, Controlled and Mesmerizing!

Methodic, Controlled and Mesmerizing. Here's a little video of some of my "Density" drawings. First exhibited at Tempus Projects in Tampa, FL. I greatly appreciate the encouragement and support Tracy Midulla Reller and Kurt Piazza gave me in showing the drawings. The work was created during a very stressful time in my life and these drawing kept me sane. I am working on more. They are a form of therapy for me.

Artist Launch @ The Wandering Eye Gallery in Ybor City-Tampa

Some of my readers may be aware that I recently help start an artist cooperative here in Ybor City-Tampa to help enable local artist to show their work on a regular basis. It is located in the heart of the Ybor City Historic District and right below my studio. It is called The Wandering Eye Gallery. Address: 1527 East 7th Ave (next to the King Corona Cigars and Cafe)

 Here's a video,  from a previous Artist Launch, featuring Clyde McLaughlin at the Wandering Eye Gallery in Ybor City-Tampa. We are about to do it again with new Featured Artist, Judy Strong. See you Saturday night- Tampa Bay! )

Check out the video and see if you can identify some of my pieces! Let me know...LOL!

Fencing on Display at Watercolor Convention

"The Parry" by Princess Rashid
On display at the FWS 2013 Convention
Photo Credit:  Carly Johnson. 

Recently the Florida Watercolor Society had its 42nd Annual Exhibition at Art Center Sarasota in Sarasota, FL. Since I was a previous winner in the 2012 FWS Online Show, I was asked to provide my prize winning painting, "The Parry" for temporary display during the convention.

My little beauty took Third (3rd) place in the 2012 Online show.

To learn  a little more about the painting visit a previous post on my new Fencing Art blog, The Sword and Brush.

I hope to enter more watercolor and watermedia contests in the coming year. I have been greatly encouraged by feedback from other watercolorists that I respect to continue.

Maybe I am on to something.....
