|Fremont Hills from Quarry Lakes. 20"x16" (51x41). Oil on panel. 2012|
The most noteworthy Studio event of the month was, of course, my Open Studio – a memorable and meaningful day spent in conversations with wonderful people. The catalog of the show is now available in printable PDF form, and will soon be available as a book. Here is one of the recent plein air landscapes that sold during the Open Studio, "Fremont Hills from Quarry Lakes".
|Nothingness: peaches. 12"x12 (30.5x30.5). Oil on panel. 2012|
One result of this brief pause is a new series of paintings, which I call "Nothingness" and have already introduced in my May Studio News post. Here is another one from this series: "Nothingness: Peaches". Most of the paintings in this series are "revisions" of older works, acts of dissolving more straightforwardly representational still lifes into colours and brushstrokes.
I'll be adding them to my portfolio website over the next days.
