Happy St Patty’s Day! Green Snoopy.

We here at Jack Gallery are getting in the spirit of St Patrick’s Day, as it seems all of Chicago is. This morning, as I walked to work by the bright green Chicago river, I noticed that the street were speckled with figures wearing green shirts, pants, vests, dresses, coats; adorned with green earrings, hats, necklaces.

In honor of this green holiday, here’s one of our favorite artist’s most green pieces.

These three paintings on paper by Tom Everhart explore the simplicity of simple, yet vivid, color choices. They are part of a larger collection called The Miniseries, many of which deviate from Everhart’s usual complex layers of color. The simple nature of the art gives the lines of the images a special prominence and strength, as though you can feel the artist’s hand behind each brushstroke.
