“Wanted to share this exciting painting I recently completed of one of my favorite subjects…TREES!! Notice the beautiful variety of rich greens through-out the painting. I am delighted it has been slated to run for a forth-coming ad in FINE ART CONNOISSEUR publication by my Charleston gallery: THE M GALLERY OF FINE ART.” -Albert Handell
My good friend Clayton Beck introduced me to Albert Handell, indicating he thought we would be a good fit for each other, and that we would enjoy each other immensely. Albert http://www.mgalleryoffineart.com/searchresults.php?artistId=12085 and his adorable love, Jeanine Christman http://www.jeaninechristman.com had stayed at our artist in residency facility at M Studio in Bird Key a little more than a year ago while Albert taught a workshop for some very lucky students.
He was kind enough to let us photograph + share the demonstration of this master work Canyon, shown in the slide show above. The entire week continued to be magic: Karen Cunningham capably orchestrated all things, facilitated the comings + goings, food + beverage + reception of all involved. We found Albert + Jeanine some of our favorite guests ever and simply fell in love with Albert’s work.
We have six of his works hanging in the gallery on 11 Broad Street in Charleston right now, two pastels and four oils. Come see us at 11 Broad Street and take a look…Albert is promising us a November workshop and possible show in Charleston.
