They Never Cease to Amaze!

This week I received a shipment of 6 paintings from one of my very talented gallery artists, Carl Schlademan. I have been representing Carl in Winnipeg since 2005.

Ryan and I had the pleasure of meeting Carl in the Spring of 2007 when we took a road trip to Regina and Saskatoon. In addition to visiting a bunch of galleries, what inspired us to go was the grand opening of the Assiniboia Gallery's new location, also representing Carl Schlademan.

Here is a picture of me and Carl with one of his famous wine paintings at the grand opening.

Carl Schaldeman paints in high realism. His fruit, flowers, wine & landscapes take on a life of their own. The lighting is always dramatic, giving his still life paintings a very theatrical look as if the objects are about to perform or take a bow. To me his pears even have personalities. Carl's landscapes take you back. They evoke a memory of a moment or a feeling or simply let you escape to a different time and place.

Here are a few examples of paintings that just arrived in the gallery this week. The details will be posted on the gallery website early next week. Enjoy!

Lovely paintings!

Had a great time at the last show opening, when's the next one? Anna and I would like to come back for more!

Thanks Lenore! The next opening probably won't be until the Fall... a solo show for BC artist Rick Bond. I'll let you know for sure.
