I framed and shipped this painting to a new home. These days I have abandoned the notion of hanging onto art no matter how much I like it.
The people who purchased this painting loved it so much that they first purchased it as a print from http://www.minted.com and then decided they had to own the original! It is a great feeling sending work somewhere it will be cherished.
Looking around the chaos of my studio it is plain to see light inspires me. As we head into the darkest part of the year the sunlight is all the more dramatic and inspirational.
These two paintings were worked up together after a very early morning on the lake. Spending time in the studio looking at your work and shuffling it around is time well spent. Nothing physically to show for it but it is valuable just to reflect.
Collecting high resolution photographs of your art is critical. At the very least it is something worth looking at later to see how your work has changed and hopefully evolved. I frequently fail to capture images of my paintings and it’s a shame to sell work without retaining a digital version.
Over the weekend I did manage to take some photographs of my recent works. These aren’t the highest resolution, I scaled them down for the website.
I was motivated by a deadline, it always seems to take a deadline!
I had this deep cradled board in my studio for years and never used it. I found it recently when I was trying, once again, to clean the studio. It was really fun to work on such a vertical piece! The dimensions are 12″x24″.
The moon and night sky are always so captivating and hypnotic to me. I noticed the moon waxing yesterday evening. I am hoping this weekend, when it is full, more of the smoke in the air will have cleared. I’m already feeling low with summer rapidly winding down, more to look forward to I know.
In the meantime I am painting a series of nocturnal images. This one is 10″x8″… more to come!
