In August 2009 mom and I took a road trip to Northern Idaho to visit relatives and friends. Fortunately, I got to paint, too.
Originally an en plein aire watercolor, Mom got her wish for a "big sky, rolling hills" request at Christmas. Here it is, except I added cloud shapes on the hills and foreground wheat after this pic was taken. And made the hills a bit less like pointy breasts, more like rounded ones :)
Last month several Equinox artists had a photographer in to take photos of our work. This costs money. And one may also do it oneself. Personally, it's too much of a pain in the keister and the equipment is expensive and where the hell do I keep it in between shoots? So we paid. Here are two of my paintings, which of course have another 1 or 2 layers on them now. Is the glare too much? I can't decide.
Both from the Prescribed series, both oil and oil stick on canvas.
Georgetown Neighborhood Art Attack TONIGHT from 6-9pm.
And more work in transition...
From the Prescribed series. I've moved from medication labels to medication chemical compounds to making each compound into an ink on paper brush stroke phrase. I've installed 22 of the 100 research pieces I made in trying to work out one layer for the 3rd Prescribed piece.
Last photo is of 6 Lasts Long Time pieces. They are finished. Wax on kona nut Japanese paper. From graves.
The last post showed only the beginning 3 phases of this piece. Not sure it's finished but until I decide what's next, have a few critiques about it and generally spend more time living with it in my studio, it's finished for now.
Drawing is Everything! That's my motto. The better one's drawing, the better every piece of art. My favorite thing about it is the energy exchange while drawing. I love to exaggerate and feel the person rather than render them.
