Live! At the Green Marble!

Brushwork

I suppose it was inevitable. The time of arrival – when I would no longer have a mutually exclusive relationship with my own works. While I enjoy the kindness and support of my web base, hand rendered art really needs to be exposed to natural light. All of this to say, my own is now up at the Green Marble Coffee House for the entire month. And I would love for you to have a look!

Aerialist Trio

Brushwork

Right before posting I have a great temptation to change the title of this painting to “The Three Muses” – or, “The Three Graces”.  Truthfully? I haven’t got the whole “Gods and Goddesses” background to pull it off. Not to mention that the costume designs were inspired by an era when The Flapper was all the rage…

This gouache painting measures approximately 10.5” x 8.5”.

Three female aerialists on swings are wearing costumes that were inspired by the Flapper look of the 1920s.

A Cross

Brushwork

Inspired by an image of mossy hills, I wound up painting a sort of story of the origin in the symbolic cross. In this 8.5″ x 7.5″ [mostly] gouache, I also felt compelled to include symbols of life’s four primary elements: Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. And while I am not really one for lengthy discourses of a painting’s meaning, viewing this piece on any screen seemed to require at least some clarification…

Gauche painting of semi abstract symbolic meaning of the origin of the cross.
