Three woman paintings

Update: Three woman paintings, they are working out. I have been finding moments to paint. Clem reminds me while she finds a warm spot on the floor in the studio. (Thanks Steve for the great easel). Three woman paintings, 30″ x 40″, acrylic on canvas. I have been going to a open sketch group and working up painting based on some of the sketches. Every painting is getting more pumped to get to the next one. The patterns in this one is making me happy, slowly I go. This is Clem’s favorite painting.

New installation at Sis&Moon

Spicing up the gallery. I am moving to a new space, same building, and thought it would be worth a saturday. I thought about it for a minute and started with brown butcher paper for visual structure. Then an aqua and beige landscape under it, with a little white line for more structure.   Then some paintings on top.

Travel watercolor set, How to!

Making a travel watercolor set out of an Altoids Small tin. I wanted something I could easily pocket, sturdy, a ulta compact. I have been super happy with this solution, it is a modification of others I have found online. The big difference is that I’m using clear legos to create the cake pans. I can switch them out, or rearrange them with out a mess or fuss. Here you can see my set up, paints out, tins cleaned, test page to the right where I test my colors (I still forget what color is what) and Legos. Supplies: One “Altoids …

Friday’s sketchbook review…

This week past 16 years, February 1997 – Nov 15th 2013. I have worked on this sketchbook, on and off. It was started out as a journal for my lizard. In 1997 I bought a tiny lizard from a street peddler and named it “Frog”. I continued working on the book long after I let the lizard go but ‘Frog’ continued to be a source of inspiration. I would use this book whenever the ‘Frog’  inspiration hit. This was never my main sketchbook, I picked it up and worked on it from time to time. 84 pages, divided by 16 years gives …

Friday’s sketchbook review…

This week Nov 2nd – 8th, 2013 It have been a busy week, sent the “Dog Head” to The Hive Gallery in Los angeles, started nocturna (nighttime)l plein air painting, and corresponding with some great nocturna painters. I think i will paint this one, It’s kind reminds me of “red princess” (for context I’ve added “red princess” to this post).  

Plein air painting.

Ok, night two I painted in front of the CVS near my home. A slight change of palette, I added a lemon yellow, sap green, and burnt umber. That gives me seven colors! Cadmium red deep Windsor blue Cadmium yellow deep Titanium white Lemon yellow Sap green Burnt umber. The extra colors worked out great, I have a lot(!) more work to do and will not put off working on my palette anymore. Try new things. I am thinking about picking a subject less lit, all the street lights are muting the over all ‘nighttime’ feel. As you can imagine I’m …

Why am I doing plein (open) air paintings.

I just started a new initiative to paint plein air every night, as long as it doesn’t get below 50. Below are the three reasons I have started. A quote on Banksy’s website by Paul Cézanne made me think. On the website it’s quoted as;  “All pictures painted inside, in the studio, will never be as good as those done outside.” A full(er) quote from Paul Cézanne:”But you know all pictures painted inside, in the studio, will never be as good as those done outside. When out-of-door scenes are represented, the contrasts between the figures and the ground is astounding and the …

plein air painting

Day one Night one, it was cold and fun to be out side painting again. A police officer in a cruiser stopped bye, “just to take a look”, he was very nice. I didn’t stray far, I was on foot with my bag and  board. I will be doing this as long as the weather stays above 50.

Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge!

Found this Today via http://thecardboardcollective.com/….. Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge!  Their Mission? to inspire the making of awesome handmade cardboard costumes. They have decided that this year they wanted to adopt a non-commercial, non-competitive approach (less contest, more spirit tunnel) AND  to make the event more kid-centered(it’s such a valuable design opportunity for kids.) also wanted encourage adults, who maybe don’t own a sewing machine, or don’t think of themselves as “creative” to branch out and try dabbling in cardboard. more at… http://thecardboardcollective.com/

Cardboard head

Dire wolf head for the wall. I started with my dog as a model, and tried to keep it simple. Also keeping supplies simple: a pencil, a box cutter, t square, Elmer’s glue and some scotch tape. – I quickly sketched my dog, Maggie’s profile. In the picture below you can see it cut out. I used the two profilesI cut to guide the build. Internal supports where added to so pieces could be built independently them jointed after they where ridged. This is the the head now, I plan to smooth and paint while maintaining a very square profile. …

I had a dog, I named him “cow”, he was a happy dog.

Some of my paintings feature a dog. I like to use “Cow“, he was a big Black, white and tan dog. You can see him in the painting (BlueRoom, left, 2009). He is in the background and he is in the painting on the wall, laying down between the red chairs. I did a piece dedicated to the dreams he might have had, he was a very active sleeper. I thought about it and tried to imagine what smells would look like. Below is a detail (Cow’s Dreamscape, 3of3, 2008) of Cow. The  triptych has changed over time and givin me chances …

all about lizards

Friday’s sketchbook review…

These spreads are from the “all about lizard” book. The Lizard book was started in 1997 when I started chronicling the adventures of at the time my lizard “frog”. He was not a good pet, I set him free in 1999 and wish him the best. I continue to work in this sketchbook off and on. Some sections gap weeks others years. I will be photographing and sharing as part of a “sketchbook Friday” back fill. Leave a comment and tell me what you think. Pages 62 – 63 Pages 64 – 65 Pages 66 – 67
