Love This One!

Aren't those colors just yummy? I'd like to see what would happen if I tried to paint something like this very large.

New Painting: “Composition #6, 2013”

I’m finally posting this small one in my latest series. I’ve thought it was done several times before, and then decided to change something else. I’m posting it here now as possibly done, though I may still decide to change something else.

Finished This One Sunday

Well, it is essentially the same as when I first painted it, maybe a month ago, but I repainted the whole thing on Sunday, and made a few changes.

The colors on my monitor are not exact: the dark blues are purpler in person, and the fushias are redder and…

It’s Good to be Back in My Right Brain

Too much left brain lately, and I think I’ve done my last new website project for anyone else (pretty please, let it be so!).

My neighborhood website project is mostly done (well, are they ever really done?), so finally I can get back in the studio, finish #’s 1, 4,…

One of My Favorites in the New Series

Something to Think About Regarding the “Art World”

I found a conversation online that, in some ways, echoes some of the conversations some of my artist friends have been having on Google+ for quite awhile, though at a level perhaps a bit beyond the dreams some of us have. Still, the blog post, and some of the comments…

Kelly O’Connor’s “Last Resort: Color Me

I tried to make to out to the West Austin Studio Tour this year, and unfortunately, this is as far as I got. One gallery, one show, and I had gone to this gallery for the specific purpose of buying a Catalog for WEST. So I figured, while we’re here,…

Change in Direction

Some of you may remember that about a month ago, I mentioned I was starting a new series that represents a slight (or maybe not so slight) change in direction.

I had found with the work I was trying to do that I was attempting to make new strides in…

You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
