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

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

Be true. Be blue

A heartfelt thank you for the kind words and ongoing support as we marked the 20th anniversary of Beluxe blue art this past weekend at Winter Thaw.  Out of the turmoil of 2001, when my blue paintings first took form, through today’s pandemonium, and the peaks and side paths in between — the core theme… Continue reading Be true.

The painting… Continue reading Revisting childhood chums
