"Rae Douglass Gallery announces Turbulent Mirror, a solo exhibition of paintings by San Francisco-based painter David Molesky. The exhibition dates are December 11 – January 8, 2010, and the artist reception will be held on Saturday, December 11, from 6 to 9 pm. 15 percent of all sales will be donated to Ocean Voyages Institute/Project Kaisei and their effort to rid the Worlds oceans of plastic debris.
In this series of oil paintings Molesky has moved out of the context of naturalism by depicting waves with a darkly saturated palette that heightens their emotive force. His use of modern synthetic colors not only suggests the oil and plastic present in today!s oceans, but also represents a deep emotional reaction to the environment." - Rae Douglass Gallery
The gallery is located here and if you are in the area you should see the strokes in person:

Here are some images from opening night. It was great fun with lots of laughing. Molesky always puts on a great show! David just published his first book which can be purchased here.

It is always wonderful to meet up with my painting peers and get some fresh air.
