current work in progress

nightscape/car series, acrylic on canvas, 20 x 16 inches, 2020

 

nightscapes and cars

I am working on paintings based on my own photographs and composites of photos, imagination/memory to show in 2021. I have taken pictures of classic cars and images of incredible skies at dusk and an night, which inspire a looser more abstract approach and exploration of colors and marks.

I am painting one hundred paintings for one hundred people to expand my painting practice, and raise funds for a future studio and home of drawing room.

To participate, check out the wordpress link and contact me: pay $100 Venmo or check, receive a number, and in time (thanks for your patience, a 16 x 20 inch painting  will be delivered, shipped. This is a bit of discipline, painting, magic and communal sharing.

 

 

I hope to exhibit as many of the paintings as I am able in a future pop up exhibit, providing an opportunity for the participants to meet one another.

2019: flotsam and jetsam: work in progress were on view Portland Chamber of Commerce from April to December 2019:  a series of paintings pairing objects from observed and imagined references. Elusive limbs pass dime store treasure, and dream remnants float in a Kesey milky fog-hide-n-seek game. Unresolved and somewhat cryptic, these paintings and drawings reflect the incompleteness and constant change we embody. Life is a cycling of of discarded and salvaged loot, fleeting moments, and residual sensations.
