Some New Little Ones

March 29, 2009

For the last few days, I’ve been working on some little 5×7 peices.  Considering the current economy, I figure we need more smaller ones for the show booth.  And besides… they’re fun to do.  The first one is out of my head.  The second is from a reference photo of a little creek shot while on a day drive with some friends.  The last three are from my west Texas reference photos.

    Hi- I’ve been following your work on Wet Canvas for awhile and just love it! Not to mention your beautiful use of “goo-wash” (British pronunciation). In your previous post, you asked about art festival info. Maria Arango, a printmaker (woodcuts) has written a guidebook that, I understand, is very helpful. She has a great sense of humor, too. I haven’t read the book, as I gave up the hard work of art fairs years ago, but you can find it on her website: http://www.1000woodcuts.com/. Good luck!

      Hi Barbara, Thanks! I’ve been meaning to buy Maria Arango’s book. Thanks for the reminder!

    “Curves” really grabbed my attention. Nice counterbalance of opposing shapes, beautiful palette, and expressive brushwork. You’ve captured something here.

      Thanks Candace! That little one laid around here for a long time, just needing something. I picked it up the other day and added some finishing touches, and felt pretty good about. Glad you like it.
