Busy Weekend!

There are two shows of my work up now: Oregon Wine LAB at 5th and Lincoln in Eugene, and Whitacre Printmakers on third. The Wine LAB show is BIG work and the WhitPrint show is smaller.
Also, I have an Open Studio on Saturday and Sunday at 787 Audel Ave in Eugene.
I will be giving an artist's talk at 6:30 on Friday.

Surprise Show at Oregon Wine LAB and Whitaker Printmakers

I was asked to fill in with a show in Sept. so I gathered up a VERY odd collection of different subjects, ideas, and techniques and put them all out. Here are three of the large ones.

The show at WhitPrint will be mostly smaller works.

New Abstract-"We Seek Comfort From Those Far Away"

This began a few months ago by building up layers of paint and laying in color. This was done with pigments, metallic pigments, and oil paint mixed with cold wax applied in thin layers until the correct surface was achieved.
"We Seek Comfort From Those Far Away"  48"x48" 
 Then I use a printmaking tool to scoop out or scrape back areas then paint back into them.
Layers of thinly pigmented wax are spread over the base to achieve the effects I want.
Using a pencil and a pallet knife I spread the paints and wax for color effect.

Scraping back and rubbing out areas of color give it depth and texture.

Ultramarine over Manganese blue with Ultramarine Violet even more thinly spread over both then Zinc white used above.
