It has been a very busy summer here (hence the quiet blog), though I have been carefully carving out time to work. These two pieces above I recently finished (and are awaiting varnish) are of Galadria. I have an idea to make a series of paintings with a particular person in mind. So far I have two ladies. Both are inspired by actual Edwardian ladies, but are completely formed from my imagination beyond that initial inspiration. I am curious to find their stories and see where they will take my work. For now, I am enjoying sparse landscapes and a limited palette. Also, I couldn't resist adding in a woodland companion or two.
We are having an early Open Studios this month. This Thursday, August 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. at 1313 Mill St in Salem, Oregon.
