    Morning In The Studio

    This photo was taken recently on a cold Winter morning when so many of my friends were ill. I had also just taken 12 days to recover from a booster shot reaction - not a good time but I suck it up and try to get back into the studio asap. On this morning, I happened to look over at the cluster of bottles on one of my work tables and thought: what a bright colorful happy mess. Maybe the colors will cheer my friends a bit - so here you go. Some cheer for you too.

    The Tortoise & Other Thoughts

    The Tortoise & Other Thoughts

    Today I am sharing a collage of recent photos from the studio. This image also shows how I rotate pieces in the studio to create a steady work flow. 🌿 "Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well." -- Voltaire

    I think a lot about small details in both the way I live and the way I work. I have realized it’s not so much about stopping to smell the roses but the act of noticing and then pausing. You have to see or notice the roses first right? But let’s take it further and notice the tiny inch worm on the petal of the rose. To date, I have about 40 mixed media works that are part of the Wild Flowers series. Originally I thought I would create maybe around 10 pieces but I just kept going. Now that time has passed I can see that the work will continue to grow and evolve.

    Studio Update: Drawing Charcoal

    Studio Update: Drawing Charcoal

    This is an update about what I like to call 'art nerd' stuff which gets me crazy excited. I have heard wisteria makes excellent drawing charcoal so I am giving it a try. This is a photo of 4-5" sticks trimmed from wisteria that has been recently pruned. Hopefully the charcoal recipe I am creating is success.

    “I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”

    This photo is of a painting in progress that is the result of test after test after test. I want areas in the piece to fall back and parts of the expressive white strokes to sing and vibrate. It's almost there.

    Studio Update: New Additions to the Chiffon Series

    Studio Update: New Additions to the Chiffon Series

    The Chiffon Series originally started out as experiments in mixed media but has shifted to entirely acrylic paintings as I have been able to successfully mimic ink-like qualities with acrylic but with more control. This photo is of Chiffon No.3, No.6 and No.4. Cheers!

    Studio Update: January 2019

    The photo for this studio update is of two little paintings that are part of a series that grew from the development time in the studio. I always start off small and move to larger dimensions once I have a series in motion. Thank you for being a patron of the arts.

    Inside the Studio: December 12th

    My, my my... it has been extra busy in the studio lately. This is a good thing. Meanwhile, I am sharing what I call "stuff in my studio Wednesday" It’s a mini butane torch for setting my work on fire. I’m kidding - it’s for nitpicking and removing unwanted bits from my encaustic paintings.

    The new Lantern Series

    The new Lantern Series

    I began another acrylic paint series about 3 weeks ago...a spin off series from the Basil's Folly group of works (which I'm still working on). At the core, the Lantern Series is a passionate expression of hope. As I explore this series, I am working with the concept of abstracted, nature-derived lanterns, candles and candelabras. Distinctly organic light source interpretations created in a dynamic way. This photo is of Lantern No.7.

    Studio Update: New Encaustic (Mixed Media) Series

    Studio Update: New Encaustic (Mixed Media) Series

    It's Fall where I live and the leaves have been changing colors for weeks already. Summer feels like it left some time ago and yet, I am still working with bright, joyful and saturated colors. The color palette shift is a trend that may stay with me for awhile. I began a new encaustic series titled Flight Patterns mid July and completed 3 out of the group of works this month. They will be available for purchase soon.
