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.
