The following was posted by good friend and patron Marsha Shyer on her Facebook page after her visit to the EngelmanArt studio last week. Her words are much too kind!
Please head over to the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy website savewright.org for more information on the upcoming auction.
I remember as a youngster reading Stendhal’s Rouge et Noir, and that always stays with me, subliminally somewhere…
Then I remember a teacher telling me “White, is the presence of all color.” But then adding to that, as is black.
So I’ve been pondering a series called Rouge, Noir Et Blanc, painted to music. The work would be imbued with the “rhythm and color” of the music. When I work in this vein, I get lost in both the process and the product.
It works magic
John and Marsha Shyer, friends, patrons and owners of the incredibly beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright House in Sammamish, Washington stopped by the Studio today!
They left today with one of my Works on Paper, Crescendo Papier I, as a donation to be auctioned off at the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
Thank you for stopping by, it is always a pleasure to have you visit and see the new work! #2016 #Work #Painting #Studio #StudioVisit
We've said goodbye here at the studio to 6 of our favorites!
They are all now on their way to their new home in Florida!
We will miss you hare at the studio, but ever so excited for your new space! #2016 #Studio #Painting #Work
