Fast, blue times at Rockabilly High

Devil at 4 o'clock is a 30 in. x 40 in. Bev Hogue original painting

A highlight of any year is the The Red Hot & Blue Rockabilly Festival — the high energy assembly of music, fashion and fast times of the 50s and early 60s. After a pandemic pause, it was great to be back for the four-day fest, staged mid-July in Gananoque, Ont., capital of the Thousand Islands.… Continue reading Fast, blue times at Rockabilly High

Surreal, with love

Midnight Matinee is a 72 in. X 36 in. Beluxe Blue Art painting by Bev Hogue

Midnight Matinee is a personal favourite among my large canvas Blue or Nothing paintings, and its appeal extends to an audience who has shown its appreciation at shows and exhibitions over the years.

Biker Chic — commission

During many conversations at art exhibitions, stories naturally arise from people as they encounter my blue paintings. I love to listen to these personal interpretations. It’s a form of collaboration that extends beyond the creation and into the realm of a painting’s new life outside the studio, outside of my own expression. And during this… Continue reading See your own blue story

Singer-performance artist Mellee Fresh poses with her new Bev Hogue painting, Disguise & Dolls

A breath of intoxicatingly fresh air — that’s the effect of Mellee Fresh. The singer-performance artist and her partner in creativity, Clive, are one dynamic duo and they electrify existence everywhere they go.

B&W movies were true blue

The way-back machine has been been working overtime in my studio. Buzzkill, Deadpan Delivery and Crime of Fashion emerged from a twisted trip through 1940s movie posters. Sea No Evil and its 3-D sister, Gillzilla vs. InstaGamera, surfaced after a voyage through B movie horror flics from the 1950s. In the 1960s, late night TV… Continue reading B&W movies were true blue
