Here’s a recent piece I started as a demo for the Artists in Action program at the Saratoga Springs Public Library. The program is run through a partnership of Saratoga Arts and the library to make the Arts more accessible to the public.

I’d like to thank Chris Alexander for considering me for this program. I had great fun!

Linger

“Linger”
30×48″ | Oil
Available

I have a few upcoming shows this Fall, so it’s going to be a busy couple months in the studio. I plan on completing a few larger works, and this one is a great size. I’m calling it “Linger” because I wanted to stay and savor this amazing light at sunset on the beautiful Hudson River.

Here’s the postcard for my next group show at The Laffer Gallery titled “Nurture Nature” :

“Winter Clouds”
6×6″ | Pastel

SOLD

Here’s my pastel for Day 4 of the 30in30 (30 Paintings in 30 Days) Art Challenge. I loved the way the cloud pattern in the sky mimicked rows of corn in a farm field.

This painting challenge has effectively shown me how to more more efficient with my work. I am finding that preparation is key, and also lots of coffee and tea ;-).

I’ll share what I’m learning in depth with a future post.

Reflections at Yaddo

reflections_at_yadoo_takeyce
8×10″ | Oil
SOLD
Private collect in New York, NY

Here’s the painting I completed Friday afternoon at Yaddo during my private workshop.
Some pointers on painting reflections.

  • Careful observation is always key to improving your paintings. Take your time to view how the water interacts with light, and surrounding objects.
  • Reflected sky light will always appear darker in the water.
  • Reflected dark objects, like trees, figures, etc. will appear lighter/duller in appearance.
  • Your reflected edges will appear fuzzier and lighter than the reflected shadows directly by the shoreline.

Until next time…
