Research: Visiting Art Galleries on El Paseo, Palm Desert

With this difficult economy, I was relieved to see several remaining art galleries on this posh street.  The first one I visited was an unusual treat - a fiber artist.  You can see his works on his website .  Here is a picture I pulled off his website of one of his desert scenes. These are really large tapestries that he handweaves on a tapestry loom.  These are 3-dimensional and really beautiful.  In his gallery he has several tapestries featuring bearded iris flowers; and even more of underwater coral gardens with fish flitting in and out of the gardens.  These are REALLY colorful as you can imagine.  As a painter, I really found his work inspiring because he had good composition, movement and use of color.  The texture and 3-dimensional aspect is something painters cannot do, but I really enjoyed.

In my next post, I will tell you about two artists I discovered that I would love to take workshops from!

Oh my, I fell jaw! How this is realistic, subtle and stylish! And yet - the feeling of convex if they were all living.
