June, 2010

What’s New

~ New Outlets; "Nadeau" and "Potter Greenthumb's"
~ Upcoming Events; "Out of the Blue" & the Lacombe Crab Festival Art Walk
~ New Paintings; Crowned Crane and Dancing Cranes

In addition to the 9th Street Gallery in Abita Springs and Phil's Grill in Hammond, Lana’s works are now also available at Nadeau furniture store in New Orleans (2726 Magazine St.) and at Potter Greenthumb's (the new chocolate & flower shop in Abita Springs, LA.) Her "Alligator Mississipiensis" photo (featured in last month's newsletter,) was recently printed on the front page of the St. Tammany News.

Lana will be participating in the "Out of the Blue" show at the Slidell Art League Gallery, June 25-30. She'll also have works in the Bayou Lacombe Art Center display at this year's Lacombe Crab Festival Art Walk, June 26-27. She will be sitting with the display (in the air conditioned John Davis Park Community Center,) when it opens on the 26th.
(Update; BLAC cancelled the Crab Fest Art Walk.)

Lana continues to get out with her cameras as much as she can before Summer's stifling heat and humidity settle in. During a recent outing to Northlake Nature Center she took some photos of a yellow-bellied water snake, a female wood duck, a yellow-crowned night heron and a young alligator, among other things. She's also prepared for the impending heat, however, supplied with canvases, brushes and some ideas for new paintings in her "birds on white" series.

After discovering the hard way that the deviantART website isn't free from computer virus issues, Lana deleted her account there and purchased a new computer. Unfortunately her old graphics program doesn't work on the new computer, so she's investigating new options on that front.

New Works
Lana completed 2 acrylic paintings in May; "Crowned Crane", one of her "birds on white" series (available at Nadeau,) and the sumi-e inspired "Dancing Cranes" (seen here at right and available at Potter Greenthumb's.)
