Art After Dark - Open Studios (and more!) this Thursday

"Late Amaryllis" Acrylic on 20 x 24 inch canvas

"Dreaming of Spring" Acrylic on 20 x 24 inch canvas

This Thursday the studios I am a part of will be having our quarterly event and I will be there with my studio door open.   See the card below for details and I hope if you are in town you are able to join us and say hi!

I mentioned in the last post I've been working on some new pieces that are a bit different from what has come before, at least recently anyway (though I always find connections with earlier work when I think I am on to something new).  The two above will be on display along with two others (and maybe a third if I can manage it).  I will share more of these soon.

"Pause" Acrylic on 9 x 12 inch canvas.
This is a new painting just added to my shop.  Another piece pulled from an abstract painting below.  This small series of paintings seem to have a calm, meditative inspiration to them.

"Serenity" Acrylic on 9 x 12 inch canvas.
Lately I've been drawing images out of the abstract, something I've not done for awhile.  Basically, while working on another piece I will apply my leftover paint to the next surface.  Then, I will start from whatever shapes I find there (and likely whatever is on my mind at the time) and will use that as my starting point.  This new painting, the first of at least a few from this way of working, is now in my shop.

Lillith and Galadria

"Lillith" Acrylic on 5 x 7 inch wood panel.

"Galadria" Acrylic on 6 x 6 inch wood panel.
These two ladies I completed more than a year ago and for some reason never shared them.   I have been very quiet on the blog as of late, but have been busy painting throughout.   I have some new paintings in progress that remind me a bit of these two, so it seemed the perfect time to post them now in advance of the new work.  These two are now available in my shop.

Art After Dark --- POSTPONED!

Join us this Thursday for Art After Dark.  Studios will be open, including mine, and it will be a fun night!  We have changed this to be a quarterly rather than monthly event, so come stop in now.  Our next event won't be until February.

UPDATE:  Due to wintery weather, tonight's event will be postponed.  I will post here when we have a new date picked out.
