Make . . . .

. . .Believe.

Funny how I may start with reference for a painting. Then through twists and turns of the creative/painting process I end up abandoning the ref for my imagination. Things get pushed and pulled with the paint. Layers get applied, layers get scraped off, areas dry and then I try to leave the marks that don't need to be adjusted. This painting is consistent with that description. Really just searching for the "right" paint application.

Solo Show Coverage

Here are a set of pics from the opening of the show. Since I don't have a smart phone, like the rest of the world, or have a Facebook page, like the rest of the world, or use Flickr, like whomever, I put them on the blog. Lacking all of this stuff means I couldn't post images as the event was happening. I know we are all so use to the 25 hour news cycle and everything on demand and instant food but its not in the Studioflint's budget, both time and money, to get my media outlets modernized, yet. Maybe at our next board meeting we can discuss these upgrades and have them in place for the fall. Woo hoo, exciting times coming ahead.

Anyhow, enjoy the pics and thanks for dropping by.


To explain a few things:
- The small gouache (opaque watercolor) paintings are the ones clustered together and framed behind glass. I usually have a set of smaller works that provide a wide range of subject matter.
- At the end of the night artists sign the door; so me and the two musicians etched our names next to many other talented individuals.
- I'm laughing because its 95 and humid and I am melting towards the end. Oh we suffer for fashion, its not just you ladies.

Show is over and its on to the next paintings/shows and back to the studio. I'll leave you with an imaginary head painting/ experiment. The head is oil on paper.

Today . . . .

. . . head over to The RLS Super Blog as the paintings gets hung for the show. There will be pics of all the works in the gallery today and throughout the weekend covering opening night. So far they have a collection of my small gouache paintings up on the wall. (Please use the link in the updated links section at right). All the artists from the gallery use this blog to post works in progress, finished paintings, and other musings of being an artist. Good resource.

My website has been updated with all the work for the show:
If you want to see the paintings in more detail, I'd head over there at some point by using the links section.

Enjoy your weekend!
