ONE WEEKEND IN FEBRUARY
Location: The Solarium
319 West Hill Street, Decatur, GA 30030
My new series of 20 paintings entitled, Lost in Translation is almost ready. The series will be on display and available for sale at the historic Solarium space in Decatur, Georgia, February 2nd, 3rd and 4th. These eccentric still life paintings continue a journey of observation, exploration and discovery into the obscure, dark, beautiful and silly aspects of the human experience.
WORKING TITLE: ALL THAT IS GAINED AND LEFT BEHIND IN THE IN-BETWEEN PLACE
SIZE: 60″ x 60″
February 2, 2023 / 6:00PM – 8:00PM
This night is for those who want to be first to put eyes on the series before anyone else gets a chance to muscle in on the painting they want.
February 3, 2023 / 6:30PM – 10:00PM
Friday night is an all-play. Come, enjoy the art in an atmosphere of Gypsy Jazz with live music by The Bonaventure Quartet! And of course there will be beer, wine and bites to help fuel your experience.
February 4, 2023 / 6:30PM – 10:00PM
Saturday night will be your last chance to see the series as a unified collection. The Wowee Zowees will be performing live. Their energetic, 50’s surf rock vibe is truely something to behold. Beer, wine and bites?… of course.
February 5, 2023 / NOON – 2:00PM
Kids like art too. OM is crafting a new scavenger hunt among the paintings and rumor has it that the pop-corn machine will be making a return appearance.
All along this journey, I’ve been posting updates for some of the paintings in the show. The link below will allow you to see the progression from ugly and awkward to beautiful and mysterious.
If Decatur feels off the beaten path to you, don’t fret, it’s a thriving little city that’s closer than you think. Come enjoy the show with friends, then stay local and wow them over dinner with your uncanny ability to de-code the deep and heady meanings of your favorite paintings.
COMING FROM OUT OF TOWN?
We’re immensely grateful for all those who make the trip from out of town. There are several good hotel options as well as airbnb homes close by.
It’s hard to imagine building a home around a piece of art, but I did exactly that. I instantly fell in love with the piece and knew it had to be the focal point of my home. The piece has such drama and whimsy that seeing it everyday fills me with the same joy it did the first time I laid eyes on it.

A commissioned painting… this fulfilled my quest for the ideal gift for my husband — the final creation has exceeded my wildest expectations. It is profoundly meaningful to us in a deeply personal way and beyond the private significance, is a composition that commands the interest of all who see it and its presence anchors our home.
At his most recent show, I was beyond thrilled to come home with my favorite “Ornamentation, Secrets and Sanctuary”. A delightful doe balancing life’s challenges on the prettiest emerald green settee… It not only speaks to me visually, Wow! by the way… it puts a smile on my face every time I walk past and admire it. I notice a little something different… and am reminded that every moment is a gift!

I have two of O.M. Norling’s paintings at my winery (Au Bon Climat) so I can admire them daily…the imagery, richness of paint, and attention to detail is captivating. It is classic. I find myself constantly needing a closer look.
