It’s somewhere between the lion and the lamb – a rainy day where I live. I’ve been working on smaller images – you’ll find them under paintings! Some are “postcards” from my time in Mexico, some are inspired by the shapes of American fashion in the 1950’s/60’s.
With big gratitude to DubSea Coffee, my show is over today. I got to hand a big check to WestSide Baby from the sales of six or seven pieces. Now I’m working on portraits and a 30-day challenge from Seattle Artist League (you can join, too!) I have new photos under the Painting and Drawing menu tabs. Thanks for looking.
September 2021: working in two ways, outside and big. I’m painting in Kubota Garden, learning to see good compositions and work outside, and I’m painting a canvas that is 4×6 feet. Very big. The new stuff is under “paintings.” Thank you for looking; I always appreciate it.
Poet Margaret Randall, was a student of Elaine de Kooning’s at the University of New Mexico. She recalls Ms. de Kooning encouraging her students: “Think big, paint big, be wedded to nothing, neither landscape, nor abstraction, paint nor stone.” And “abandon long practiced becomes skill.”
I have some new things to look at under “drawings” and “painting.” Abandon was practiced. Thanks for looking. Get vaccinated if you can.
