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........

Remembered Landscapes

My work is usually titled after it is completed. I carry with me remembered landscapes, light, color and emotion.  As I work through a painting I find those things revealed.

In "Skyward" I remember those amazing skies of my youth.  Laying on our backs and watching the world go by.  What do you see?
Skyward, 30x30", oil, cold wax on panel, $2300

In "Skyward" I remember those amazing skies of my youth.  Laying on our backs and watching the world go by.

My paintings are titled after they are finished. I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me - and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would more like to paint what it leaves with me.

A super foursome

This awesome foursome sold last week.  I knew it was going to be just a short matter of time before they found the right home.  It is so rewarding when another person is as excited about my work as I am.
Thank you!

Awesome quote from Joan Mitchelle

I try to put me thoughts and feelings about my work into words.  This quote by Joan Mitchell explains a lot about why I paint.

"My paintings are titled after they are finished. I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me - and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would more like to paint what it leaves with me."   Joan Mitchell

Creativity happens....

Creativity happened this weekend.  Another great Next Level workshop in cold wax at 310 Art with me, Cindy Walton.  I want to say this is my quote but I don't for sure but I like to say that...  creativity will happen but you have to come to the table and begin.

There were 8 students working hard for 3 days and creativity happened.  Each one was able to focus on their work and leave to "world" behind.  The results was wonderful.

Where does that green come from?

Jane and I, St. Pete. Beach, FL

Often I am asked what inspires me or where do your colors come from.  Well, this is a picture of my childhood friend and I in the Gulf of Mexico last summer.  I grew up in this area of Florida and I think this is where that green comes from.  What do you think?
