Sudden Sky

Sudden SkyThis piece is in a group show this month at Collector in Berkeley along with 4 earlier works. Perhaps this piece is influenced by the West, but there is so much to absorb I think it will be a while before my art reflects what I see and feel in this new environment.

Greetings from San Francisco

I’ve landed on my feet in San Francisco in a quiet neighborhood called Bernal Heights. Wonderful little houses, nice people, hilltop views, lots of light – and a short drive to the ocean. Bernal HeightsIMG_4125

My paintings will be in a group show this summer at Collector Art, a gallery in Berkeley, where they currently feature my art cards. A bookstore down the street from me is also selling my cards. I’m looking forward to printing another card series and spending time in my studio inspired by this new environment.

The process of moving 3000 miles to an entirely new city and set of circumstances is quite a ‘production.’ Many things still in process, including me! – Virginia

Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,

and bow and accept the end

Of a love or a season?

Reflection - 15"x22" monoprint on paper

Reflection – 15″x22″ monoprint on paper

Reflection: 1. throwing back light without absorbing it, 2. serious thought or consideration.

This summer was an intense immersion in monoprinting for me. I hope you will visit the monoprint page on my website and check out my other new work: http://virginiagiordano.com/Virginia_Giordano/monoprints.html

Monoprint in Group Show

Regatta – 11″x14″ monoprint

A monoprint is an image painted on a plate and printed from the plate. One or sometimes two prints are made from the plate. I’m really enjoying creating art using this technique new to me. I have posted some monoprints on my website: VirginiaGiordano.com > paintings > monoprints.
