New Painting – New Direction

After struggling internally on weather I should continue to do local shows. The problem I was facing was  developing quality work. I would rush to produce work just to be in the show. A lof of these old pieces I am destroying/painting over. I realized that I didn’t like the piece and they would be better served for creating new pieces. Here is one of the  new peices that I just finished and I am extremely happy with, hope you enjoy.

Rarely do I share insight to my work before its complete, I will if I have studio visits or buyers who have commisioned a piece and want to see it as it progresses. This painting was started in spring of 2006 and has set in a quasi finished state waiting for completion. Lastnight the vision came for its completion. Here is a glimpse of the “King Arthur’s Succession” – soon to be completed. This is a partial view.

Paintings from Fall/Winter 2007/08

With the Fall comes creative inspiration. The long summer days surpress the creative river that flows underneath always waiting to be unleashed. Then that first cold front that comes in unleashes the creative river. Here are a few paintings from my recent latenight painting sessions.
