Say Hallelujah

GC Myers-  Say Hallelujah

Say Hallelujah– At the Principle Gallery Show, June 2022

Who is rich? He that rejoices in his portion.

— Benjamin Franklin

Say Hallelujah is a new 18″ by 24″ painting on aluminum panel that is included in my annual solo exhibit at the Principle Gallery¬†that opens tomorrow, Friday, June 3. There is an opening reception that runs from 6-8:30 PM which, unfortunately, I will not be able to attend. But this year’s exhibit is well worth seeing in person without me being there as I feel it’s one of my strongest shows yet.

It was a group of work which excited and engaged me fully here in the studio. I hated to see it leave this space.

Say Hallelujah is a good example from this show with its deep colors, bright blossoming sky and the relationship between the Red Tree and the sun rising on the distant horizon. It a piece with strength and conviction that, as a painting, stands boldly on its own yet links seamlessly to the other work in the show.

It’s a piece that expresses the simple gratitude in just existing as one is, set apart from greed or envy and rejoicing in the beauty of the world around us.

That’s message that definitely fills a need these days. Makes me want to say “hallelujah.”
