OCAF space and light

Unloaded paintings at the old school house which houses the OCAF galleries. Fantastic light, high ceilings, old wooden floors - just a great space.
Leaned the work against the wall in the order we carried it in and it looked as random as confetti after a parade.

Since this show combines previous series with new works, it has the look of cousins at a family reunion - each person is an individual, yet you can definitely see the family resemblance.

Half an hour later, the remarkable Charles Warnock had placed the paintings in juxtapositions that made gorgeous visual sense. It was like watching a magician pull a rabbit out of your own hat.
I'll take photos on the night of the reception of each wall. What a transformation! It was like handing the man apples and a a bag of flour and getting back a Tarte Tatin.
I'm writing brief captions for each painting this weekend. Thrilled all over again that I was asked to do this. Thank you, OCAF!
