Below is a collage of all the pastels (and 1 graphite sketch) I completed this month! They are in order starting with the first in the upper left, and ending with today’s piece in the lower right. It’s been overall a very rewarding experience for me. I am a bit bleary-eyed from all the late nights, but it was completely worth it. I’m glad I challenged myself.

These works, along with the work Kate Edwards completed this month will be shown at Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY from April 12 thru June 8, 2014 with an opening reception on April 12, from 3 – 5 PM. If you are interested in any of these, please let me know. I have a few favorites. Which are yours?

Softly She Rises

SOLD

Inspired by the full moon rising over the lake a few days ago. Pale as can be, she was barely there yet ever present.

I picked up my paintings from the gallery today. I’m happy to report that 17 works of art have found new homes. The show was an all around success, and I am grateful for the wonderful feedback, support and well wishes. Michelle LaLonde of Mimosa and her team did an excellent job of connecting my work with wonderful people. I am honored.

I spent the evening reading through some of the comments left in the guest book, and got a little teary eyed. These little notes are so special to me. As an artist, I really want others to see the world more beautifully, so I am pleased when that connection is made. Thank you all for for sharing your thoughts with me.

Until next time…

River Reflections

10x10" oil

Sold – Private Collection in Round Lake, NY

This painting was the demo I completed at the “Meet me at Mimosa” Luncheon yesterday. This was a completely new experience for me (painting while engaging with an audience), but it went a lot better than I had initially thought. The group was very welcoming, and made me very comfortable. It was like having a conversation with 30 close friends. I want to thank the fabulous Michelle LaLonde and her wonderful team for hosting, and connecting me and my work to such passionate art lovers.

The show is up until this Sunday, 7/28. It’s very bitter sweet. I’m sad that it’ll be over soon, but so happy to have met so many wonderful collectors/art lovers and I’ll have a lot less work to bring back to the studio as well. YAY! More space for new work!

Along the Hudson

This weekend I dropped off a car load of paintings including the one above to Mimosa Gallery for my solo show there this month. It was such a relief and thrill to hand them off. I can’t wait to see the work all together. I am tremendously proud of the paintings being shown in this exhibition. Lots of hard work, long hours, and sleepless nights. It’s certainly all worth it in the end.

Each of these paintings capture moments of inspiration. Moments where I took pause to appreciate the beauty that I am so fortunate to be surrounded by every day.

Here’s an image of the postcard. It features the painting “Summer Shadows” 6×8″ oil.

I’ve been busy painting, and haven’t had a chance to post all the paintings here as yet. For a preview of the works included, please see my FB page album:

If you are interested in any of these paintings, please let me know or contact Michelle LaLonde at Mimosa Gallery, 518-583-1163. I’d love to hear from you too, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!

If you are in the area on Saturday, July 13th, I would love to see you at the opening. I’ll be there from 4 – 7 PM. The exhibition runs from July 3 – 28. For those not available for the opening, I thank you for the well wishes.

Until Next time…

Soft Light on the Lake


12×12 inches oil © 2013 Takeyce Walter
SOLD

A still day, and a view out on the lake. It’s so still. I get lost in the beauty of it for a few moments that seem like forever.

This painting and several others will be displayed at the SaratogaArtFest Center and Gallery Group Exhibition now through ArtsFest weekend on June 6-9, 2013. The Grand Opening Artists Reception will be held this Monday, May 20 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

The Gallery is located at 38 Van Dam Street, Saratoga Springs, NY.

I am honored to be exhibiting with three other great visual artists this year – a sculptor, photographer, and another painter. I’m sure it will be a wonderful show. Kathleen Lucey, the curator always does such a wonderful job choosing pieces that are exciting and interesting to experience.

If you’re local – please come out to see us!

Until next time…
