Carnival of Landscapes: New Works

IMG_1402

I’ve been working on a new series, Carnival of Landscapes. This new series of paintings have been done in oil and cold wax on wood panels (some have an underlayer of plaster) and reflect a vibrant, rich color palette. Seven have been finished and will be making their way to Lunaria Gallery in Silverton in time for First Friday, June 7th.

Funky Junkyard Birds: A New Flock

Latest Flock of Funky Junkyard Birds

 

I recently finished up a batch of my Funky Junkyard Birds, birds made from recycled, upcycled, and found objects. I haven’t made these birds for over a year, maybe longer, so it felt good to get back in the groove. Once I made the new flock, it got me clamoring to make more, so I spent a couple of days cutting out bird body parts and I can’t wait to dig in because I’ve got some great ideas to embellish and  make the next batch a bit more flamboyant.

I thought it might be fun to see some of the materials in my basement studio (where my metal, wood, and plaster work is done). From raw materials to finished art.

Transition Time: Hello New Blog

Studio View

I’ve been blogging since October, 2007. Since that time I’ve written 905 posts and shared thousands of photographs. I plan to continue blogging, but I’ve migrated to a new platform and with that change, it means starting fresh with a new blog. My old site has been archived and is still available for reading. I’ve added a link on my sidebar to make it easy to hop over there. From now on, I’ll document my art adventures  right here. I’ll continue to post about the classes I take and teach, the art I make, the shows I’m in, and the goodies I gather when I’m out junking.
