Here is a great blog post about the intertwining of art & life, by Nicholas Wilton
Here are a couple of in-progress images of the painting I am working on for a commission. Since my last post, I have evened out the shading, tightened the lines and added the drawn circle lines and forms.
I'm loving the way the drawing came out so far and how the painting is coming together! Now to add the contrasting vermillion red loop shapes and any final touches before the resin is poured.
A few weeks ago I completed one of the commissions I've been working on and installed it in a sleek, mid-century home here in the KC area.
Working with the couple to develop the initial sketch, this piece took me some time to get it just right. I'm so happy with how it turned out and how amazing it looks in it's new home!
Join me for a private reception and artist talk in the Leedy-Volkous gallery.

Here are a couple of pictures from my show at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center here in Kansas City. The space seems to suit this body of work and I'm very happy with how Erin, Stephanie and staff @ LVAC curated the show.
Drop by to see the rest of the show, which remains open through the end of March. Plus, there is a second opening on Friday, March 1st.
Leedy Voulkos Art Center
Working towards my show at Leedy-Volkous and so far this week has been productive in the studio. Pictured here are two works near completion. The top is 36" x 48" for the show. The left and bottom images show the progress of a commission. The green orb is somewhere between the two photos; neither too yellow or bluish.
Today, I'm prepping & priming a 46" x 60" panel - the largest single panel I've worked on so far!
I've been focused on making work for my upcoming show in February at Leedy-Volkous Art Center. Several paintings are still in progress while others just need some tweaking before drawing elements are added. In this grouping is also a commission I'm working on and plan to finish this month as well.
I've been working in the studio and have several works in progress. Here are some images from one of the pieces showing progression in the very early stages of the painting as I block in color and forms.
While I'm working from a sketch for this piece, I am adjusting some details and elements which I hope will make it a more dynamic painting. More to come....
