something new

Yes, with all the work I should be finishing, I'm starting new things.
What can you do?
Starting with some collage materials, the palette's going in a different direction here. My favorite thing on the wall right now, but quite a ways to go. (hence the photo-shop-ic haze).

an Impromptu Show

Tony and I got the chance to hang some work for a few weeks at Frame of Mind, the very fine frame shop in Forestville where Tony works a couple of days a week. Our stuff will be up through about Sept. 28th, but hours are somewhat limited, so call in advance (707) 887-8530.1) two of my paintings, and a number of my framed giclee prints.

2) On left, Tony's first large-scale print on canvas, from the painting "This Moment"; Leslie assists clients with framing; my stuff behind

3) Tony in front of his "Whoops!"-- acrylic on panel,
from the collection of Pati

landscape painting demo

Remember that landscape class I'm teaching?
I started the canvas (16 x 20") at left last week, talking about trying to see values (the range of lights & darks) in a scene-- and decided to keep working on it. The center panel shows the values converted to colors, roughly blocked in, and the third panel adds detail. Tomorrow we'll be out in another local park. Thankfully, it seems the heat wave has broken. It's still foggy here, at noon.
