My summer art show schedule is starting to take shape. I am waiting on a couple more application results before I decide my wanderings this summer. I have committed to two shows so far. Both in the Midwest. Art Fair on the Square in Belleville, IL and Palmer Park Art Fair in Detroit Michigan. I will add more shows to my schedule page over the next couple weeks as I know more.
48×36 inches, oil on canvas, “Artichoke Gallery”. I recently finished this baby. It seemed to take forever! This picture prints decently but I’m having problems getting a good image for online. The colors are more vibrant in real life and some of the greens really should have more yellow in them, but I’m done for today. This should give you an idea…
This one will be traveling with me this summer… speaking of traveling, I’m almost done applying for my summer shows. Now it’s wait and see time.
This painting has been complete for some time but I finally had it photographed. So here it is “The Asparagus Seller”, 50×30 inches, oil on canvas, coming to an art fair near you :). Otherwise I’ve been working on a new large painting and preparing art fair applications for the 2017 summer season. Busy, busy!
I’ll be showing my work at the Edmonds Arts Festival booth 512 this coming weekend, June 13-15. If you’re in the Seattle area come on by and say hi! I’ll have several new paintings with me, including my latest “Still Life with Heirloom Tomatoes”, 32×32, oil on canvas. This image will also be available on cards and 6×6 tile.
OK, I know it’s been a while, but I finally got around to photographing these two recent paintings. The first is another in my “At the Market Series”, Spring Onions, 36×24, oil on gessobord. It’s a bit different than some of the others I’ve done. I’m enjoying the curves. The second is the latest in my cottage series, 16×16 inches, oil on claybord. I’m enjoying painting these. It reminds me of summer and times at my cottage. This painting is now available through my etsy shop. Now off to take advantage of the absolutely wonderful weather we’re having here today.
I thought I’d take advantage of the absolutely beautiful weather we’ve been having and photograph my two latest creations. They’re both 16×16, oil on cradled claybord. These are based on photos I took at my cottage in Ontario last summer. I’m rather liking the way the bird house turned out. I’m currently working on a 36×24 painting of spring onions.
Sometimes the smallest things can make excited about my work. I decided to try doing some drink coasters with images of my work. It seemed like a perfect match. They turned out better than I had hoped ! I REALLY like them :). These cork backed, hard board, dye sublimated coasters have bright, saturated colors, an easy to clean surface and are currently available in ten of my designs. They are available as single coasters or as a mix and match set of 4. All I need to do is get two more designs and I can start a coaster of the month club!
