Oil on Canvas
34" x 34"

I finished this painting earlier this week and had Tom Alexander photograph it for me. He does  beautiful work and I am able to see the painting square inch by square inch it I wish.

There is something bittersweet about finishing a painting. You are ending your involvement with it as an artist, as a creator. The new relationship with it is hard to describe. There is a good deal of satisfaction in gazing at the finished work and a bit of pride, but there is also a edge of sadness, of longing to be involved in the process of painting and creating. 

And so, there is only one cure for this malaise, today I start a new painting.

Untitled Monoprint
11" x 11"
on 15" x 22" Stonehenge

This is an original hand pulled Monoprint. It reminds me of summer here in the high desert. Everything bakes in the sun and then suddenly the rains come. Everything become quite verdant in a matter of hours and we are renewed, refreshed, until next summer.

New Card

This is the new card! Spring Romp on Fabriano Medioevalis natural white paper, with envelope 8.25" x 6.25". I love this paper, it is made in a factory that has been producing paper since 1264. This paper is hand torn. Makes me long to go to Italy.

                        Here's a better image of Spring Romp

I will have these cards with me at shows for sale at $10.00 each or a package of 6 for $47.50. I am attaching the link.

Mono Serigraphs

Untitled Canter
Mono Serigraph
12" x 9"

I love printmaking. I gives you such a different surface than direct drawing or painting. I am also impatient, and love the immediate  result you have when working on a drawing or painting, no proofing.

Working with silkscreens, watercolor, graphite, and a clear acrylic silkscreen medium I produced this Mono Serigraph. I printed both of these on a piece of Stonehenge that I had toned with watercolor.

Love it when you can combine techniques and media.
