I have been making new work like crazy, mostly quite large pieces. This series has a lot of overexposed and washed out imagery as it relates to memory. A bit like squinting on a bright day, memories are often abstracted and faded over time . Here are a few, they will be available as prints soon!
Have a wonderful weekend! The fall weather has me lighting candles and huddling down in my studio. I have too many paintings waiting/wanting to be made, which is both amazing and daunting. So many images and ideas floating around in my head, waiting to get out. Ok, so off to get some done! See you next week, perhaps with new work to share…
John Baldessari, I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art, 1971. Lithograph: 22 1/2 × 30 in. here
Observe: my boy taking the best photo booth pics ever and a painting from a few years ago. I didn’t even think of the parallels here until I was uploading pics to my computer. Perhaps some new bow tie boy paintings in the near future?
this shirt (because little known fact, I swear like a sailor)
an advent calendar I can get behind
this dream light
blowing up photo booth pics (perhaps to use as wrapping paper?) found here
and lastly, some of my very favorite things in one room. What you can’t see is how giddy I was upon seeing a whole room of Gerhard Richter paintings in person for the first time, ahhh.
The High Highs ‘Bridge’
Long time no see! Well, this summer has kicked my, well you know. I am a soldier of routine and summer throws that right out the window. The kiddos go back to school in a little over a week and I am so ready to sink back into my beloved routine (aka get more work done!). In the meantime, I have made my latest work available as prints in the shop!
1. watching the world go by outside the car window 2. recent polaroids 3. my lemon tree is blooming (the smell!)
I feel like summer just began and simultaneously is almost over, sigh. The days are full trying to get work done, portraits completed, a site redesign/relaunch and the usual here and there of getting kids to camps and adventures. Oh, and getting the odd vacation and general summer enjoyment in. These are a couple polaroids I took on a recent trip to the beach. I will be back next week with a new site to share! Have a wonderful weekend!
prints coming soon…
Just a quick note to say I just added several originals to my etsy store!
I am addicted to the new flavors at Salt and Straw, especially the Bourbon Barrel aged stout, soooo good.
have a wonderful weekend!
I have added several new prints to my etsy store as well as new sizing options (I will be doing this to most of my existing prints as well over the next few days). Each print is available as an 8″x8″, 12″x12″, 18″x18″ and 34″x34″. Also, I added a portrait option in my etsy store which you can see here.
Also, the original paintings ‘Hazy Beach’ and ‘Assist’ will be up in my shop tomorrow!
I was so excited to see my ‘Smile and Wave’ painting in Emily Henderson’s a.ma.zing living room!
We’re in the process of picking finishes for our addition. I’m dubbing our bathroom (similar tile to this) ‘the little black dress of bathrooms’
I need this coffee mug to remind me in the morning.
We spotted our first naked bike riders of the season this morning, it’s officially summer in Portland!
Also, I plan on adding new prints and originals in my etsy shop this week!
(also pssst, I am raising my print prices this week, so if there is one you’ve been thinking about purchasing, this is would be a good time to grab it!)
when you’re busy. Seriously, in my head it is still February. The weeks seem to spin past! Anyhow here are a few things happening around here…
painting, painting, painting (and wishing I had more time for painting)
loving that our kids love going to concerts as much as we do (and that they great taste in music)
oh, you know, just planning to blow out the back wall of our house next month….
