Paintings From Then and Now
When he first showed his work in 1984 John Seed was painting large oil paintings with bold, expressionistic subject matter. Now, living in Cambria, he paints small semi-abstract watercolors loosely based on local scenery. Seed's CAA exhibition will feature 3 large oils, including "Wine and Roses," which was included in his 1984 one-man show at Newspace Gallery in Los Angeles. On the opposite wall Seed will show a broad selection of his watercolors. There will also be a display of some of the books and magazines he has written or contributed to in his nearly 2 decades as an active art writer.
