Annual Art Show February 1 to March 22
Two works are on display at the Art Center in Huntington Beach. “Golden West” is a sunset over dog beach, inspired on a bike ride along the bike path on Pacific Coast Highway. A second work, “Sailing,” is also on display February 1 through March 22. To find out more about the show, go to the art center’s website at http://www.huntingtonbeachartcenter.org
Every now and then you have to try something new…
For the last few weeks I have been working on a new style. This involved searching for the right paints and tools to achieve what I imagined could happen on canvas. A couple other paintings I wanted to post are already gone, so I am posting these two which represent what I was trying to create. I chose to work on a 40 x 30 inch canvas for this series to have a larger impact with color.
Thanks for stopping by… I appreciate your feedback and have been inspired by blogs kept by everyone who has stopped by. All work is copyrighted by me and is for sale. If you are interested in purchasing work, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trying to capture a vision
I often see designs in my head and try to capture them on paper or canvas as I did with this work. It’s a challenge to paint intricate designs with acrylic and a paint brush… it might be better done with a fine point pen (as I did during class when I was in school). I posted this painting horizontally but it could also be hung vertical. I chose these two colors to give the painting movement. Thanks for stopping by (-:
The piece inspired by underwater world images will be in the Free Spirit Show at The Art Center in Carpinteria from June 15-July 29. Opening reception is Saturday, June 15th from 5 to 7 pm … Free Spirit was juried by Karen Browdy. The Art Center is located at 855 Linden, Carpinteria, California. I dropped off a couple of pieces for the bin (pictured here)… hopefully, they won’t be too big!
