New Artist Portal and Gallery

With the New Year of 2018, I’ve decided to dedicate more time to getting my art out into the world and out of the studio. To the end, I joined Saatchi Art. It’s fun having a new space in which I can share my work. Primarily, I’m showing my latest work from the last part of 2017.

This mixed media drawing is called “Eyes Wide Open.” It is a diptych of 30″ x 44″ and was created in 2017. The drawing depicts a flower bouquet in a Neo-Cubist Expressive style. The end result is an Organic Abstraction. My goal was to encourage movement and cultivate an abundance of vibrant colors.

Memorial Day at Deer Lake

Having visited Deer Lake, Wisconsin, near the border of Minnesota, several times, I’m feeling as though I’m starting to understand the way land and water come together. Here are a few of the mixed media paintings and a drawing I did there, over the past week:

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.
