This painting of a little blue electric fan is in the beginning stages.

2015 was a very busy year for me. I had two solo exhibitions which I find remarkable that I was able to pull off. Not sure how I was able to do that… or if I’d ever do that again in coming years.

Right now I have several paintings in the works in my studio. I’m enjoying my time focussing on painting and have decided to take a bit of a break from social media and get some work done. I’ll share what I’ve been up to at the beginning of 2016.

Behind the Easel

Over the years, as I spend all my time dedicated to painting, I have come to understand that other representation painters share many things in common. There are common questions that painters have before them.

After meeting Robert C. Jackson in New York this past October, I remembered he had published a book featuring 20 accomplished contemporary representational painters.

Each of the 20 painters, in their own words by answering a series of questions, share what their life as a painter is like. Insight, wisdom, ideas and observations from artists with established careers and experience. What more could you ask for?

The books is inspirational and beautifully designed. Each artist shares selected paintings – the large, full colour images will have you engaged for hours.

The book is available through Amazon and directly from Robert’s website.

Below I have shared a glimpse at some of the beautifully laid out pages. Three artists who’s work I am fond of, including Robert C. Jackson, Scott Fraser, and Daniel Sprick.
