The Road Home

The Road Home
2/13/14 | 4×4″ | Pastel

SOLD

Heading towards the fading light, finding my way home.
I am almost half way through this project. It’s so funny how it’s become a habit. I start to get cranky if 9 PM rolls around and I haven’t started painting yet! Now if I could only figure out a way to get my cardio in while I paint!

Until next time…

Saying farewell to winter. Hopefully for the last time this season! I’m looking forward to bare feet, dandelions, and the sweet smell of grass.

Until next time…

SOLD – Private Collection

I’ve been busy preparing for my summer shows! In addition to my solo exhibit in July at Mimosa Gallery, I have two other group shows coming up in June – more details about those later. It’s all very exciting and I’ve been doing a great job carving out time to work on new pieces – even if it means staying up to the wee hours. All this excitement comes with lots of energy and motivation.

I came across this quote from Edward Seago on Marc Hanson’s Facebook page:

“Often, in my mind, I have pictured a great blank canvas, and in my imagination I have seen it transformed into the masterpiece of my dreams. Memory has conjured the subject and imagination has fashioned it. How I wish I could show you one of those pictures. They are very broad in treatment and there is no detail to distract the eye; yet the tiniest incident is there if you look- the glint of a dragonfly’s wing over the water, and the blue-green of the hedge-sparrow’s eggs in the smooth hollow of the nest. The colours cannot be found in tubes- they are taken from the fields and flowers, and are mixed with light and air.” – Edward Seago

That pretty much sums up how I’ve always felt about the natural world. I have all this beautiful imagery bopping around the brain, and I am eager to share it with you all.

Until next time…
