"The History of Roots" beds down.

Carol Paquet's "The History of Roots" was installed in a private home in Edna Valley, Central coast, California - starting 2009 off on a good note. The artwork was created initially on canvas with oil paint (part of the Penumbra series) and then overlaid with shadows to complete the vision. The final piece is an archival print on paper, 56" x 33" and framed in a solid steel frame with museum quality glass. The piece is installed at an adjunct to the grand entrance, at the end of a wide corridor flanked by floor to ceiling windows overlooking Edna valley.

Klaus and Sabine Strobel are now the proud owners of three of Paquet's works.

Royal Flush - collaborative print

To discover a taste of Corkstop Studio artists' first collaborative print since Roger and Pacha have joined the studio, visit "Hearts Obispo" at ARTS Space Obispo in the Creamery anytime between January 21st through February 14th, 2008. Or go to the February 6th Art After Dark event for which ARTS Obispo goes all-out. Amazing sweet treats, local wines and live music set a festive mood for bidding on larger items in the silent auction.
"Royal Flush" was created on acetate film with ink, both rolled and drawn and scratched. It was then scanned, edited and printed with an Epson 7880 onto Canon etching paper in a limited edition of 8 prints.
