Nightfall, October (SOLD)

A bittersweet time....the dark days come. I often get home so late that I'm walking in the dark or near dark. A favourite location.....the distant view at dusk reveals lights off in the distance, suggested here by the 2 specks of white. I like coming to the collages every so often. They provide a break in the type of thinking involved in the paintings....

Rolling In (SOLD)

2 b, 4b, 7b pencils....an interesting process for my AP students to try. Keep the pencil moving, hatch, scribble, line, hold the pencil by the tip, look for line variety, layer and over layer in varying directions, create connection between parts, balance black/white/grey, use the eraser as a technique......

Forgive me, dear blog, for not telling you more....I have not forgotten you. This road to the hill.....I'll soon be walking it in the dark....the dark days are coming, and I often get home late. I should make more paintings of night...I have made very few....

Group Show, Metaphysics of Presence....with image links.

Q art salon now has a few preview images from this show. Think about artists who work both representationally and abstractly, and see no inherent conflict between the two.
