Between my Open Studio in late November, the too many holiday shows to prepare for right up to the end of the year, and a trip to Colombia for two weeks in January, I had little time or bandwidth to focus on painting. However, I am nearly back to normal now and have produced seven… Continue reading 7 Squares in 7 Weeks
It’s December Already!
Somehow the last quarter of this year has just sped by – in a whirl of art shows I admit, so not too bad – but it really is too long. So: In September I sold my first ‘new work’. My painting, Red Sprites sold itself on opening night of the Live Worms Gallery show.… Continue reading It’s December Already!
Still painting all the time; learning; enjoying; producing; redoing; reworking; replacing. One more week to go in this adventure. Here’s what I’ve done this month so far: There will probably be one or two more before the month and the course ends. Two will also be on display in September, the first time my paintings… Continue reading AUGUST 2021
June and July
Feels like I should catch up here. Pretty much all my art news is in my July and August newsletters. The most important thing I did in the past year is enroll in Louise Fletcher‘s 8-day “Find Your Joy” Taster course back in June. She had us doing amazing painting exercises daily, and the by… Continue reading June and July
May 2021 – Spring is here; Restaurants are Open; and I have lots of art on gallery walls…
Until mid May my “Keeping Up” is part of the juried TEXTtural show at the Live Worms Gallery in San Francisco’s North Beach – until Sunday May 16th. And, in addition to the diptych, Dreams of Spring 1 & 2 being in the collage show at the SFWA Gallery, I also have a wall in… Continue reading May 2021 – Spring is here; Restaurants are Open; and I have lots of art on gallery walls…
Three main efforts in April, plus one do-over. I woke up one morning in a whimsical frame of mind and produced a pair of cheerful, folksy ‘squares’, both of which were chosen to be in the May collage show at the SFWA gallery.They are called “Dreams of Spring” #1 and #2. Another even more whimsical… Continue reading April Activities
March and a bit
Moving along in my art journey, I challenged myself to create a series using a very limited palette until I ran out of 10 inch squares. I finished the fifth one today – a bit into April, but I’m please with what I did and how I felt as I was doing them. I settled… Continue reading March and a bit
I’ve had an assortment of 5 burlap covereed boards and stretched canvases for several years, stacked in a closet and totally verginal. I decided the time had come to make them into something. It seemed to me the 3 burlap boards wanted to be landscapes, something you won’t have seen since I started doing mixed… Continue reading February Clearup
Abstract and Whimsical heading to North Beach
I’ve fallen in love with squares – These little 10×10″ babies are easy to work on, easy to transport, require no frames and cost less than their larger relatives. So far this month, I’ve made 7, sold one immediately, and just brought 5 (plus one from December) to the Live Worms Gallery for their February… Continue reading Abstract and Whimsical heading to North Beach
And on to something new…
After 21 panels of ‘doodle designs’, I’ve moved on, for now at least, to more complex, layered and textured designs while still working on wooden squares. Here are two (left one already sold!). The buyer was kind enough to send me a photo of this piece in situ. I love how the figures on the… Continue reading And on to something new…
