First Weekend in Toledo is not this weekend, but next. Various art galleries around Toledo will be open to greet art lovers and browzers and engage is “artful” conversation – and who knows – you might find a piece that fits perfectly in a space in your home that has been waiting to be filled with something from First Weekend in Toledo.
To Michael Gibbons, the Pacific Ocean includes a vast coastline from Washington into Mexico where he has worked and painted scenes of incredible beauty. “LAGUNA GOLD” was painted on the California coast where the rocks and water come together in particular vigorous action. “Sparkling sea and brilliant colors are represented in this moving painting as I tried to capture it as a 14″ x 24″ image on a canvas. NOT an easy thing to do,” says Gibbons. Come to see this action painting yourself, visit with this award winning painter and enjoy the art he has to show you.
