Hampton Arts League Open Members Exhibition 2012

Watercolor "Male Torso" original painting by Masako Simmons

Male Torso

My primarily work is surreal or abstract in acrylic, but I painted male torso this time in watercolor.  This is something new and I had painted a few more as a series.
This maybe my new direction for 2012.  Who knows…?
This painting “Male Torso” will be exhibited in the annual members exhibition for 2012.

Please come to the Opening Reception on Saturday, January 28, 3:00-5:30pm at The Charles H. Taylor Arts Center.  Free admission with a little refreshment. 🙂
I hope to see you there!

October 23, 2011 Sunday at the Charles H. Taylor Arts Center.

All small works in different mediums.  Tiny watercolor paintings, tiny oil painting, tiny acrylic painting, tiny sculpture, tiny clay, tiny mix media, etc., etc…  I had a great time at the opening reception except my feet.  I rarely wear high heels and they were killing my feet!The exhibition still continues until Dec. 4th.  I hope a lot of people get a chance to see all fine art in Hampton Roads Virginia.

Three of my paintings, “Light”, “Eye”, and “Entrance” are exhibited. (Photo on the left)
