Art news :)
I don’t usually post my own art here on this blog, but I’m making an exception today because I’m really happy with how the first piece came out.
I was recently invited to participate in an Australian show titled “Post-cards from the Hudson Valley.” That will be in March and then later this year, Australian artists will have a show at a gallery in Beacon. The images have to be six by eight inches — much, much smaller than I normally work. Because one poor artist is schlepping all the art over in her luggage, she asked that we work on paper rather than canvas, so I gessoed up two pieces of Arches watercolor paper and got to work (the third, she’s printing for me since it’s a photograph).
The first is titled “Beacon Shaman 2019”, acrylic on paper (it already sold):
The second, a weird little abstract landscape titled “Beacon Lights”, also acrylic on paper (I was coming home late at night and saw the lights of the city twinkling across Fishkill River…it looks better in person — the texture didn’t really come out in the photo):
and finally, the third is a photograph of a military memorial in London titled “Lest We Forget”:
I do take commissions — in fact, I just finished one for an etsy customer so if you’re interested, contact me here.
