I have been busy working on new paintings for my upcoming April exhibition at the George Billis Gallery in Los Angeles. I’ll share new work soon, but in the meantime, here’s a glimpse of the studio as it was on February 2, 2018.
Here’s another quick and dirty iPhone snapshot of a painting just being completed — a new clock and book composition.
This is one of 16 new paintings that I’ve got in my studio right now. All these paintings will be headed to New York in the coming weeks for my October exhibition at the George Billis Gallery.
Here’s a quick iPhone snapshot of what was on my easel one morning this past week.
These two paintings are works in progress for my upcoming October exhibition at the George Billis Gallery in New York City.
Trying to decide where to lay in a thin layer of paint.
I haven’t shared anything on my blog in a few weeks because I’m knee deep in several complex paintings. I don’t know how some people have the time to share so much on social media. Every time I decide I should post on Instagram or Facebook it seems to take way longer than anticipated. I’d rather be painting.
I have used this vintage Corona No. 3 typewriter in the past – but nothing gives new life to a subject like a wall of beautifully vibrant colour.
A few more layers and details on these vintage primary readers, then this one is on the way to the Elliott Fouts Gallery.
Oh, summer. You make it so hard to stay focussed in the studio. The lure of the sunny beaches and trails to explore. Please grant me a few overcast or rainy days so I can lock myself in the studio for a few hours to finish these paintings.
Once these two paintings are complete, they’ll be heading to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California.
Here’s a peek at me working on a recent commission – a Bolex Paillard 18-5 8MM film projector form the early 1960s.
Here are a couple of close-up shots of me working on the details. The final stages of a painting are always the most satisfying. The camera I’m painting was found at Everything Old – one of my favourite places on planet earth.
These are the final two paintings of a dozen new ones for my May 21 – June 25 exhibition at the George Billis Gallery LA.
Before this I shared a crowded clock piece. This week I’m sharing a clean, simple trio of clocks. I like the sense of space and order in this one.
This is one of the dozen new paintings that’ll be heading to Los Angeles for my exhibition next month.
