Some Fresh Work
March 24, 2013

Here are a few images of my latest paintings: the first is a partial pic of a new work, based on 3 baseball players. (Can you guess who ?)

To get a view of the full painting – a trio of ball players whom my husband asked me to paint for him (a 50th birthday present) – scroll down …

These photos are via my friend Elissa Barnard, who took them on her phone when she stopped by the other day.

Here is  “Anthem: O Canada””… which I was going to put in an upcoming fundraising event, for Sacred Heart School in Halifax. (I decided instead to do a new painting: a oil portrait)

… I cropped the photo of “Anthem” a bit ..

And below is the full image of  “The Baseball Boys”…

(I will also post a close-up image of Anthem girl’s eye, since it gives a great sense of color…).

Hmm, let’s see.. here goes…

Before I go, below is a “”thumbnail” sized image of Elissa’s pic of the painting “”The Baseball Boys””.

from left:

Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig.

The painting is about 2×4 feet… and is now hanging in Greg’s office.

New Paintings, New Plans
April 16, 2012

The 6-month showing of “The Nova Scotia Nine” portrait series has wrapped at The Halifax Club, and I’ve decided to devote some blog time and space to showing my latest paintings here, online. I’ll post images of the portrait series along with the paintings most recently completed. Watch this site for more….

As for “The Nova Scotia Nine” (you can click the link above to read more about women), they’ll be making independent appearances at various events around town, including an upcoming federal ministers’ meeting.

This blog tracks the origin & evolution of Jo Napier’s Art Exhibit honoring “The Nova Scotia Nine- Great Women of N.S.

The Halifax Club

Since the Great Women of NS Art Exhibit moved to that elegant business bastion – The Halifax Club – the reception has been strong.

Most recently, KMPG hosted a by-invitation, women-in-business event; it centered around a private showing of my “The Nova Scotia Nine” collection of contemporary, interpretive portraits of great women of Nova Scotia.

It was a sparkling evening and I’d like to thank KPMG for staging such a great event around “”The Nova Scotia Nine“”.

Great Women of NS Portraits Storm The Halifax Club

This blog tracks the origin & evolution of Jo Napier’s 2011 Art Exhibit honoring “The Nova Scotia Nine- Great Women of N.S.

The Halifax Club

The Great Women of NS Art Exhibit has moved to that elegant business bastion, The Halifax Club.

Thanks to Jodi Bartlett, the Club’s wonderful General Manager, for the warm welcome.

Crowds were steady and reactions to the portraits were very, very strong at The Public Archives, where the show had its 2-month Summer “”run””. Jodi says the response to the portrait collection, at “”The Club”, is equally strong.
