A group of paper studies that may or may not be combined (August 2016) for a larger oil on canvas piece. Him: two expressionist portrayals of masculinity, a few plein-airy documentations of my friend’s houseboat on Lake Union and two immediate outdoor watercolors of skies at midday and sunset (I always have to work fast at dusk).
I produced only four live paintings during the Cascadia festival last weekend- three standing from the dance platform at the River Stage looking in various directions, and one of my friend napping in the hot tent at our campsite. There were simply too many fascinating beautiful things to focus on at this world class gathering in the forest. I plan to work of photographs for the next pieces.
Bowmans Bay near Deception Pass, WA, plein aire December 16, 2015. I could only work for about two hours as it was about 40 degrees F,- my hands got too cold- I need to find a way to preserve dexterity and warmth!
