I haven’t posted much new work so far this year (!), but here are seven of my most recent paintings on canvas (on 1.5″ gallery-wrap canvas, with painted edges, to be exact).

The first one, “Be Bop a Re Bop,” was probably done in April. I painted out everything that didn’t belong.

Running Pops

The second painting shown here was even more of an exploration of painting materials and techniques, and the painting came before the title (which is almost always the way I work). The title for it, “Running Pops,” was inspired by a wild type of passion flower that volunteered in our backyard this summer; a flower that grew like crazy over other plants. Hanging from the vines were dozens of wonderful little round buds that eventually became either flowers or red fruit, and they look a lot like these shapes.

This painting is still in progress, though it is unlikely to change dramatically.

This painting is also still in progress; it now has a new title.

Now with a new title, I love what’s happening in this space.

😀

I still have a few more in progress. If I finish them in time, I’ll have them with me at EAST over the next 2 weekends, as well as nearly 40-50 small paintings and works on paper. Join me and nine other Cherrywood artists at the Vortex, 2307 Manor Rd. Sat & Sun, 11am – 6pm. The Vortex is also planning lots of fun events for children and adults. Check out the schedule, map, etc. on the Vortex website.

Believe it or not, I can actually draw.

  • The colours in your painting are some of my favourite to live with. I have had some of those soft greens on various walls for years. Always feels like the sun is shining and the same for your painting.
