Painting talk

Autumn, 36x36", oil and cold wax on panel, $3200
As fall is approaching I wanted to reflect on this painting. " Autumn" which reminds me of the transition of seasons. Reflections of color on a late summer pond, a walk in the woods, or the transition of color from one season to the next. I find it calming and healing to get lost in a painting.

Visual Word exhibition

A collaborative exhibition took place the middle of August.  My friend and poet Laurie McCarrier, composed a Haiku (5 verses which was allowed) to accompany my paintings "Uncharted". 
Uncharted, oil and cold wax on panel, 10x10", framed , $300
UNCHARTED

uncharted quiet 
memory, hidden stories
wishing to be told 

textural surface
what’s underneath reappears
waiting to be seen

slow river current
buried inside layers, scratched, scraped  
wanting to be touched

anticipation
paint tubes open, brushes dipped
floating memories

water reflection
color, depth, transformation 
paint tells the story

Painting Talk ...can paintings be uncharted territory?

Uncharted, 10x10" oil and cold wax on panel, $250.
Talking about this little gem. I was taking a workshop last month and rediscovered old texture ideas like powdered pigments, papers and just making a mess before things come together. " Uncharted" reminds me of gazing into the water and wondering what were the shapes below the surface.  An uncharted territory........
