September Afoot

The Game is Afoot. Glad to say a new painting is underway. Today was the third “Session,” with gestural Paynes Grey strokes added yesterday. Probably more subtraction and defining forms ahead. I was quite under the weather last week, so painting this weekend is an especial joy.

August Work in Progress

I’ve spent the las few weekends preoccupied with readying paintings for the “Watermarks” show at Jo Fleming Gallery and reviewing older work for the Maryland Federation of Art “Wil Talk” a couple of weeks ago. Back to some new work, mindful of previous work. So this work in progress is more “graphic,” harder edged, and saturated in bright colors than work since last fall. 40 X 30″ acrylic, and bringing in some paper/collage sparingly. Fun to work in this manner.

Project Projector

Project Projector. I finally have my copy of Robert Ray’s latest book: The Structure of Complex Images

I am so pleased that Robert asked for me to illustrate a second book cover for him. I love the directness of painting, but there is something about print that has been a thrill since seeing my drawings in the Lakewood High School student paper. Thank you Robert.

NOLAN

Here is a link to an excellent interview with artist Nolan Winkler: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDkp6dZlC1Q

When Nolan showed work at the Las Cruces Museum of Art, New Mexico, I had to introduce myself and tell her how much I like her work. I have since had the opprotunity to show with her several times. So glad to say that we stay in touch. Her art is as compelling as ever. Enjoy!

Working Title

Working Title “Cicada Song” because the Brood X whirring sound is all pervasive. Still in keeping with the atmospheric “water works” of late. 60 X 40″

I think that it sets nicely in the early June Shady Side landscape.

Dark Stormy

High Winds on Treasure Island, Florida. Soonest I could visit the home-waters and Fam after second vaccination. Wanted to share this image of a place I love to be, in a darker aspect. Back to paintings next post.

And here is a small panel of mine hanging in Sister Lise’s house:
