Spring Cleaning

Since our weather is incredibly mild for February, I’ve gotten spring on the mind. I’m cleaning my studio today, thoroughly. Getting it ready for a fresh new body of work, starting tomorrow. I’m thinking it’s time to give the flowers and still life a rest. Time for something new:

Conceptual Art using Portraiture. A series potentially called Specimens of a Negro.

Will be back to share, as the process develops.

Livvy’s Orchid #4

These orchids were done in the late afternoon under mellow diffused natural light using mixed media of a water-based and oil-based painting and drawing material. I’m growing fond of diagonal compositions, triangles and motion.
