It snowed here last night (enough of a rarity here that it is always exciting). So I decided to finally finish and share some skater paintings I’ve been working on for forever. I just love the stark minimalist quality of winter and decided to also invert several of the pieces, so both will be available. I hope to have them available next week. Happy Friday and stay warm!

Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of art books and trying to be better about keeping a sketch book. I’ve also been trying to devote at least a little time each week to ‘playing’ without worrying about the end result (which is strangely hard to do).

So there is this amazing art project happening, consenses. It’s essentially a grown up, artistic game of telephone. Please, please check it out!
“Each artist extracts the essence of the piece they are provided and uses it as their catalyst for their own creation. Ultimately, this process forms what they’ve termed “Interpretative Chains”: a collective, holistic statement; an intriguing procession from one piece to the next; the revealing of a unique glimpse into the artistic process and the complexity of perception. So far 130 artists from all over the world have participated (none of them know who the other artists are on the project).”
The goal is for it to exhibit this summer, watch and find out more about it and how you can contribute to making it happen!

Have a wonderful weekend! The fall weather has me lighting candles and huddling down in my studio. I have too many paintings waiting/wanting to be made, which is both amazing and daunting. So many images and ideas floating around in my head, waiting to get out. Ok, so off to get some done! See you next week, perhaps with new work to share…

this shirt (because little known fact, I swear like a sailor)
an advent calendar I can get behind
this dream light
blowing up photo booth pics (perhaps to use as wrapping paper?) found here
and lastly, some of my very favorite things in one room. What you can’t see is how giddy I was upon seeing a whole room of Gerhard Richter paintings in person for the first time, ahhh.

Long time no see! Well, this summer has kicked my, well you know. I am a soldier of routine and summer throws that right out the window. The kiddos go back to school in a little over a week and I am so ready to sink back into my beloved routine (aka get more work done!). In the meantime, I have made my latest work available as prints in the shop!

I feel like summer just began and simultaneously is almost over, sigh. The days are full trying to get work done, portraits completed, a site redesign/relaunch and the usual here and there of getting kids to camps and adventures. Oh, and getting the odd vacation and general summer enjoyment in. These are a couple polaroids I took on a recent trip to the beach. I will be back next week with a new site to share! Have a wonderful weekend!
