Art Prints

Sorting through old image files and discovered this painting from 2004/2005. It's a color spot painting, a synthesis of Helen WanWyck's color recipes and Hawthorne's color approach, addressed through critiques in Hawthorne on Painting

I'm busy painting, while giving some time to online marketing.

Cripple Cove Prints

Last fall I started a series of distressed digital prints. I photographed the print on 10/1 and the date is imprinted on the photo of the distressed print. The prints of the prints will be offered for sale through FineArtsAmerica, as soon as I erase the date stamp. not sure why the date stamp was set. It detracts from the whole A link will be posted as soon as the images are available for sale 

Best as always,

Happy New Year! This is my first post of 2015 and I'm starting off the New Year by offering prints of my art for sale through FineArtAmerica. Spoons is a detail of a much larger painting that I frequently use as a 'source' for new compositions, etc.

Photography Prints

Please take a moment and click through to the site. The bio has been updated, as well as, new offerings of the Ghosts of Versailles in the various work-in-progress states loved by so many, until i changed it. Seems change is the only constant in my art production.

There are no new shows in site, so I've decided to focus on some on-line marketing. I've spent most of today and yesterday updating, uploading and providing a few words to the tags, descriptions, etc. If you have always wanted a piece of my AHHT, here's your chance (at very reasonable prices).

BTW: If you are local and decide to purchase one of the prints, but want an original...get in touch with me. I can add an original signature, as well as, a few original brushstrokes, or metal leaf to the work so that you can have a 'one of a kind'.

Best to you as always,
feet on floor, eyes forward, brush in hand,

ps: I want to bombard the site with my work; but, have opted for a teaser. My plans are to update with new images once or twice a week. Maybe I can garner some interest and earn some dough to buy art supplies. onward. spoons acrylic prints and spoons acrylic art for sale spoons metal prints and spoons metal art for sale

New Work

 Another Face I remember, m/m with aluminum leaf on canvas.
10x10". I don't know who this is. a composite of many faces
observed throughout these many years. I had just finished this
when I heard news of a friend's passing. Then, a lone seagull
glowing pink and orange in sunset light passed overhead.
blessed dreams Susan Mackey. 

Self Portrait, sort of an encounter with a personal
art history. 10x10" m/m on aluminum leaf on canvas.
This is an outgrowth of earlier 'tape' constructed drawings.

best to you with the Light of the Season
with blessings for a healthy and bright New Year's
to you and yours.

color or not

 the color and the gesture didn't get along. i've gone through work i've done during the past year and realize that the work i am happiest with has a limited palette and a strong gesture. i'll let up on myself know. the painting can use a bit more warmth. for the moment it has to dry.

detail of the center. there is magic here. the paint brush glides.

best and onward,

Ghosts of Versailles continues

Have been working on this steadily since October 18 or thereabouts. It has been scrubbed down many times to the initial drawing. The sizes kept getting away from me. sometimes i got artsy, and the paint got sloppy and dirty and the medium wasn't right for a while, the paint was curdling. so, that had to be scraped down. Sizes feel right. still working out the gestures and twists. the feet look clumsy here, the painting looks more solid. there are some color changes that aren't showing up in this. will clean the brushes and give it one more go.

I never expected this baby would take this long to deliver. every day i wondered if this will be the day that it all comes together. it's not something that can be foretold. 

best and onward,
