I am working on a series of colorful “edge of day” paintings. I very frequently work with a rather muted palette so the color is an exciting excursion. It is all about the light and atmosphere so I am letting these images be suggestive and abstracted.
Final digital capture of this 24″x18″ painting currently residing at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery. Once it tires of the island it is on it’s way to England, a permanent home!
What a depressing week of news it has been, the world seems awful cold at times.
I just keep my head in the clouds with this new painting. It has been years since I listened to the Traveling Wilburys but they sound mighty good today (RIP TP).
This is another small painting (8″x8″). Reducing everything down to the simple basics of sunshine and water.
It is summer after all! There are only so many for each of us, word is less every year…
…and evening follows.
This is an 8″x8″ acrylic painting. I have always liked tonalism and an overcast morning really displays that kind of magic. Now that summer is finally here we are seeing beautiful bright mornings, I will play around with some of that imagery, never enough summer days in this short life.
A quick little 10″x10″ painting. The simple theme of light and dark are a consistent pursuit in my work.
I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.
Four very small pieces, 6″ x 6″, acrylic paintings. Continuing on with smaller art due to work space limitations. I am planning on doing some 10″ pieces next as these little guys don’t allow for room to roam.
I have completed a couple of small sketchy wave studies in acrylic paint. I am planning on doing a fairly extensive waterscape/landscape series and these were just quick little works to try a few things out.
Excuse the song title, it is a good one though!
Just for fun posting the most recent skull paintings together. Both 10″ x 10″ acrylic. Hopefully I will be back behind the brush soon!
This is the fifth painting in a little series of fish paintings. 10″x10″ acrylic paintings.
This one is particularly loose and free. I rather quickly developed some bold blends and marks and knew I could only muddle what I had… Knowing when to stop!
