Congratulations to Michael - he has been awarded third prize in the exhibition - see previous post for details.-
Michael was one of 65 artists selected for this show by juror Kerry Morgan, Director of Gallery and Exhibition Programs at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). Michael's painting Breaking Trail was displayed at Lakeville Area Arts Center October 1-30,2016.
We have been delighted with the first reactions to Michael's new website - "wow" and "gorgeous" being just two of the descriptions when people saw the images.
Work, however, continues. Soon you will see larger prints added to the range - up to 26" x41" so all of the work will be available up to full size. And some of the Michael's 2016 Hawaii collection will soon be there too - luxuriant florals, dramatic seascapes.
As I write this, we are minutes away from Michael switching on his new website, the culmination of months of work. The inaugural collection includes a cross section of his work - florals, landscapes and abstracts, in watercolor, fabric paint, charcoal, and ink on silk, Italian paper, Japanese paper and Chinese paper. The prints are all on beautiful high quality paper - the results are stunning. Frames and matts have been carefully chosen to complement the images. You will now be able to own one of these life enhancing pieces at remarkably affordable prices.
Next thing to watch out for- we shall soon be adding more originals and prints from Michael's Hawaii collection, painted on the magical island of Kauai in February this year,
Michael spent the month of February on the magical island of Kauai. He has created a series of dramatic seascapes inspired by the intensity of the colors and the power of the ocean, working at many of the glorious beaches . He stayed near Kapaa in the lush green valley of the Kealia River and painted everyday surrounded by its glorious flowers and trees. The results are vibrant, exotic and capture the spirit of the place.
The pieces are on their way to the framers ready to be exhibited at his Spring Show on 17 April 2016 at his studio at 308 Prince Street #519 , St Paul, MN55101.
We've been hard at work putting together a new site for Michael Daly Watercolors. Now you can order your favorite watercolor of Michael's online—or get a print of one that was purchased before you were able to get it!
Explore the site and let us know what you think. Soon there will be a link to Facebook and Twitter. If you find an error, please contact us vis the contact page and we'll get it fixed asap.
