Amp it up!


 
 
I've been busy in the pottery studio working on some amp-ed up designs.  I have decided to make the backs of most of my pieces just as juicy as the fronts.  Here is my fav so far.  Just LOVING! the chartreuse green.
 
Extra large platter with braided handles decorated front and back.  $235.00

10 Ways I Will Make This Painting Better

 
I went to Jim Salem's painting class yesterday.  I hadn't been to class in an age and felt I needed the discipline that the class setting brings.  Plus I got to see old friends and there where COOKIES!  We all did sunsets.  Everyone brought in sunset photos and they were shared.  I am basically happy with my painting, but I thought you might find it interesting to see how I evaluate a painting to decide if it is finished.  My very favorite prof from U of A (go wildcats!), Bruce McGrew, said all of the areas of a painting had to be resolved before you could call it finished.

 
 
Here are the 10 areas that I think need to be resolved and the how I plan to do so.  My next session on this painting will address these areas.   I will do the evaluation process again to decide if it is finished or not.  Stay tuned to see the final update. And don't you just LOVE the circles and arrows.
 
Do you think there's something I'm missing? Let me know.

Foodies

Some small original paintings on paper are off to the Virginia Perle Gallery in Toms River, New Jersey to be in a food themed show.  The show opens on August 2 with a book signing of "The Vegan Cheat Sheet".  I am excited about this show because my grandparents lived very close to Toms River (in Seaside Park, just over the bridge) and I have very fond memories of the area. And if I can't be there at least my work will be.   The show is up until early September.

Happy 4th of July (short, short video)

video
Most of June was spent working with young artists and scrambling to put in a little studio time each day.  I have lots of fun stuff to share with you, but not today.  Enjoy your holiday.
