This is a painting I did a bit over a year ago. I painted 5 trout images and a less then flattering but reasonably accurate self portrait. I was painting small 10″x10″ paintings as I was between studios. I discovered that they made a really cool single art piece when hung together. Now that I am in a great new studio space I have been digging through works for some upcoming shows and rediscovered these. People keep trying to buy the individual fish paintings, curiously no one wants the self portrait! For whatever reason I refuse to break up the band and am going to hang them all together in my new studio…
This is an older painting, two years old. I had been painting desolated man made objects working out the beginning of a series. I had four other chair paintings they all sold aside from this one. “Wait” was actually my favorite of the bunch so now I am pleased to hang it up in the studio. Perhaps I will revisit the idea in the future.
Last night was the opening for my solo show at Crossroads Carnegie Art Center in Baker City, Oregon.
It is always fun to see a lot of your work hanging together in a show! I believe I brought approximately 53 paintings to this particular show.
I gave a rambling art talk followed by a few questions. Then I hung around and talked to the kind hearted art patrons for a couple hours… now back to Idaho!
I have been busily preparing work for my upcoming show. I decided to bring some smaller paintings with some of my larger work to this exhibit. These twelve paintings are all 10″x10″ in size, they were all painted over a seven month period. Signing varnishing and adding hangers all takes time but it is part of the deal.
