Hello, my name is Kaye Shannon and I am one of the artist members of the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. I am mostly a watercolorist but I love doing most anything to create something.. I paint at home and generally have a “supervisor” to watch (or sleep) over me as I go about my “creating”. These have been my cats. I have had several supervisors throughout my many years of painting. The first picture is of my first supervisor. I would like to introduce you to Booeenie. Here is a picture of her supervising her portrait and I have included her portrait after it was finished. She seemed to have liked it very much. She is now in cat heaven and I miss her very much.
I now have two new supervisors. Baxter and Izzy. I have a couple of baskets in my studio that they love to crawl in. We listen to good music as I paint and they generally curl up and sleep. Occasionally they like to creep over to where I am working and do a toe test on my wet work. Also another area they love to manage for me is the laundry. I have included a picture of their work there.
This August at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery we are celebrating “man’s best friend”, and you can join us! You are invited to create an original dog artwork for “BEST IN SHOW, a dog art exhibition”. A portion of the art sales from the exhibit will be donated to the Central Brevard Humane Society. The show opens on Friday, August 4th in conjunction with the EGAD First Friday Art walk (Dog Days of Summer).We will be awarding some fun ribbons for our dog art winners, shooting doggie portraits on the front porch and dog quick sketches in the gallery! Love dogs… love to make dog art… please join us.
Space is limited… so don’t delay! Get all the info: here
Damien’s love and passion for marine life and the lifestyle of a true surfer are all revealed on canvas. He paints to inspire us and to communicate all that is beautiful both physical and spiritual in sea and life.
He works exclusively in acrylics, which gives the work a bold look and every piece ties him to water, be it ocean or the Lagoon. Please join us for this exciting exhibition… come meet Damien Share and enjoy his unique view of Brevard County.
