The wall

This week I decided I wanted to tackle something large.   Not just4x6 feet large, like a whole wall large.  I somehow ended up with this canvas that has been sitting in my basement for years and decided to finally do something with it.  I unrolled it, put grommets in the top so I could someContinue reading “The wall”

New work on view tomorrow!

Come see new work at the Workhouse Arts Center.  I’m really proud of this body of work.  18 new pieces on wood.  18 rivers of the world represented.  When I started creating these works my goal was to experiment with the textures of the wood.  How would the washes lay on top of the grain? Continue reading “New work on view tomorrow!”

What’s going on?

Well, I’ve been a bit too busy this past month. I’ve finished my pieces for a “Spotlight” show at the Workhouse Arts Center (18 pieces total).  I’ve been applying to shows all over the metro area, and I started a new part time teaching job. Needless to say, I’ve been neglectful of my blog.  I’mContinue reading “What’s going on?”

Work time

So, it actually feels like summer in this part of the world right now.  For so long we’ve been really lucky in having a warm, but not hot and humid, summer. Until now.  But that’s ok.  It just makes me want to go to the studio a whole lot more.   I had some time offContinue reading “Work time”

Summer time in the Studio

It’s my first week in my studio since I don’t know when.  It’s allowed me to work on a lot of projects that have been pushed to the side or stuck in my head.  This week I’ve already made some movement on some large paintings that should have been completed months ago, but I guessContinue reading “Summer time in the Studio”

I’m in

This week has been so busy, but in a good way.  I made it to the studio a few times this week and also started a new “job”.  It’s not really a full time job, more like an artist gig to get out into the community.  I’m now working as an Artist in Residency withContinue reading “I’m in”

Studio update

I’m moved into my new studio space over at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, Virginia.  Of course there is more settling in to do, but I managed to get a bit of work done today.  After dropping supplies off all week, it was nice to get busy on my art again.  The move wentContinue reading “Studio update”
