Last week, I shared some of the images from the upcoming Trinity Perspectives show at For Worth Community Arts Center. And since then, I’ve had some more come my way, so I thought I would post them, as well as any thoughts the artist sent along, a few at a time as we get closer to the show’s Sept. 5 opening. Enjoy:

Dennis Blagg, Trinity Tree: I have always wanted to paint this tree, this project gave me a great opportunity to do so.

Carol Ivey, Feathered Brilliance: I first became aware of the bluebirds near the Trinity Trees last year in the spring. The year before that, my friend Jim Marshall had spotted a pair of birds there and contacted Streams and Valleys Inc. to get their OK to put five nesting boxes along the trail between University and Hulen. I found visiting the boxes and seeing the birds to be a source of hope and inspiration. When I told Jim I wanted to make a painting about the bluebirds he enthusiastically became my collaborator by sharing the portfolio of digital images that he has patiently captured over three seasons. The central image was painted from a still life set in my studio, and the eight circular vignettes are painted from the digital images (below).
