Two Hundred and Ninety!

It was nice to start this piece, because I grabbed a scrap piece of paper which happened to have a few marks already on it. It gave me a place to start that felt a bit different from the last few. I like that the piece moves across the paper and changes a bit along the way. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Four!

IMG_5561

 

The most recent addition to my hands collection. I really struggled with this image. I couldn’t seem to figure it out and each night I would photograph it and stare at it over the course of the day trying to see what needed to happen next. The original piece I created I ended up cutting up and layering into this piece. It’s obvious on the top section but the lower half of this image is entirely pasted onto the heavier stock. It was even interesting to see how the two different watercolor papers reacted to the paint absorption. Granted I forgot to make note of which papers I used… FAIL. I’ll pay more attention next time. I love how the fence like structure floats around the page. I think I really want to play with this cut paper idea for a bit maybe in the next piece. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Eighty-Two!

IMG_5543

Small little image I worked on last week. I wasn’t sure what I was going for but I really liked the integration of the teal. Its a like a pop of fresh new color that really hasn’t been in many of the other pieces. I do feel like I am starting to get a little stuck…. Apparently when my mind settles down I lose my drive, guess I need a new stress factor. I know I will regret writing that as soon as it comes along. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Twenty Nine

Another lazy day, but atleast by the end of the day I had run 3 miles, painted an OK picture and prepped all the meals for the week. I know it does not sound very exciting but I feel like this a productive Sunday. Anyway, the actual image above I do not like but I did sit down and try today which is sometimes the hardest part. Lets see what tomorrow brings. Enjoy.

Two Hundred Twenty-Seven

Since I am somewhat bogged down in the apartment today, trying to kick this obnoxious head cold I was left with little to do. I finished the first season of Orange is the New Black last night so with no TV show to turn to the next best relaxing option was to paint. Granted imagery was not popping into my brain the way I would have liked it, I drew from my past obsessions, rocks, caves and a good bit of shading of course. Now the colors are once again looking a little too rainbow-ish for me, but I’m working on that! Enjoy and see you next time!

One Hundred and Thirty-Seven!

Today was open studios, day one, and although it would be considered slow I did pretty well. Most of the people who stopped by were very pleasant to talk to and encouraging about the kind of work I am producing. I love when people who are completely new to my work fall in love with pieces, at least it proves that my work is interesting. It was fun talking about the works and trying to describe the crazy things I see in my head and translate that. It is true that my work is organic and nature inspired but that is typically the base of the image and then who knows… I run with it I guess. What I did realize today is I need to take some time to update my about this blog page since the basis of the blog has evolved with the blog, and people who are new to it may not realize. Below are a few images of my set up today, somewhat similar to last months open studio.  Anyway enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow.

Day Ninety!

Today was such a wonderful Sunday, went for a morning bike ride, went to the beach, dinner with the family, and a walk on the sea wall to finish off the day. I was able to dedicate a nice chunk of time to this painting although it is rather small. I’m excited to have been producing these small paintings just before open studios next Sunday. This image is a combination of the shapes I’m working with, as you can probably see, clusters of mushrooms, fins rocks, webs, and petals. See I work on more than just rock images! Anyway, enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow! BTW can we believe it is July already? Mental right!

Day Fifty-Eight!

Today’s painting inspired by the rocky shore of Halibut Point. I always love drawing and painting rocks and this was a very fun experience. I hope to do a few more images like this over the next couple days and play with the depth of the space a bit more.
