OPEN STUDIO SHOW, PART 1








Hi Everyone,

I wanted to thank all of you who came by my studio. It was very good to meet many of you and hear what you had to say about all things art. You are all invited back! For those of you who were not able to make it, here are the studies I had on display. Some of them you will recognize from earlier posts on the blog. All images are in between an 8"x10" to a 11"x14" .

If you are intersted in purchasing one of these items please give me a call at 971.219.7588 or jobaflint@yahoo.com. If you like a piece but want a closer look I could email you a higher resolution image. Each one is framed with archival materials and is behind UV coated glass. Shipping is free.

More good stuff soon to come your way.

Here are a few shots of what my creative space looked liked this last weekend for the Open Studio Exhibition, for those of you who weren't here or couldn't make it. Yes, there were actual people stopping by all night, which I failed to get pictures of. Over 300 people visited the Towne Storage building on the night, and I would say, that I either met or greeted over 100 who came through my door. Overall it was a good night and if you came I hope you enjoyed the shows. This was the first event of its kind and with this type of reception I am sure there will be more.

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to give you an idea of the type of work that will be on display at my OPEN STUDIO EXHIBITION this Saturday evening, from 6:30-9:30pm. These works are my studies and sketches that I do on a regular basis. Each one lets me work with ideas and concepts that I am exploring. Some move on to become finished paintings while some only reach this preliminary stage. I really enjoy moving through an idea (fairly) quickly and often times these spontaneous works, I think, are better than a final painting. There is an immediacy that can't be replicated in a larger work, and that kind of honest application is what creativity is all about. So I do consider these paintings and drawings little gems.

I will be posting all of them soon, and they will be made available to purchase online after the opening on Saturday Nov. 18th. If you would like information about pricing get a hold of me via email at jobaflint@yahoo.com or call 971.219.7588. Each piece is framed with archival materials in the style displayed in the above image. I will list sizes when I post them all later but most are from 8"x10" to 14"x18", in that range at varying sizes. I am using gouache mostly but some are mixed media.

Hope to see you all here.

STUDIOFLINT: 17 SE 3rd Avenue, Suite #312, Portland, Oregon. Right by the eastside of the Burnside bridge.

Best,
Joshua Flint

A small quick sketch with an ink brush, that could very well turn out to be a larger painting. Stay Tuned!

Untitled (as of now, that may change)
30"x40" oil on canvas

Perception is a unique thing. Personal yet universal, individual and collective. It changes over time but memory can link us to that past state of mind.

This painting will be on display at my upcoming Open Studio Exhibition, NOV 18th 6:30-9:30pm. Come on down.
