Meet the Artists - Magic City Art Connection


Birmingham, AL

What a great weekend in Birmingham.  I love a good art show!!!! The Magic City Art Connection is always a fabulous event. Set in downtown Birmingham's Linn Park , it is a wonderful conglomeration of art and music and just plain fun!  If you read yesterday's post,  you know I have been a "repeat offender" by attending both Friday and Saturday.  I will have several more posts for you.  Today meet a few artists friends! By the way, I think Daphne and Michael have been inside my head.  IF I could paint worth a hoot, I'd be a big copycat of their work.

Their portraits are great. I like the soft landscapes of the first artist very much and the bright colors of the second.
When are we going to see a display of your photos, V? Seriously.

PJ,
I gave up art shows when I realized it was costing me more than I ever made. DUH ( It took me two shows to come to that brilliant realization!)

Looks like they had some great art, Virginia. If only Michael was wearing an I heart AL shirt (or I heart AUBURN)!!!

I'm glad you are out doing artists' portraits. It's fun and rewarding. But what's that on the guy's shirt behind his sunglasses - I what? New York?

Julie said...

Yes, I was wondering what Bob is wondering. It looks like something bordering on the crass ...

Virginia said...

Oh no, it's sign language for LOVE! :)

I can't beleive you had to explain the T. Shirt. I thought I lived in backwardsville. I'm considering having a crack at sketching again, purely for fun.May have a stab at painting a leather jacket again too. I sold those so not too bad. the vibrance of the images has made me want to squirt bright colours, not capture them.
