Congratulations to Christopher Swetlin, whose beautiful Girl with a Bubble received an Honorable Mention in the Pacific Art League's current juried exhibit, "Figures and Faces"! The show runs August 2-29 in Palo Alto.
We got to see this luminous piece in real life at our June chapter meeting when
he presented his rather unusual techniques, using sandpaper, Xacto
knives and electric erasers to abuse the paper as he develops his
drawings. In case you didn't pick up on it, his piece and title alludes to Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring."
