"Evolution" Group Show

 Here's a group show that I'm in, opening soon:

Group show at Robert Lange Studios
Charleston, SC
March 1-31

"Dawn", mixed media on panel, 11" x 15", 2000

"Dusk", oil on linen, 10" x 15", 2013

     For this group show, each artist was asked to include a 'before' piece from their development, either from childhood or early in their career, and make a new artwork based on it. The first image "Dawn" was a mixed media collage I did while at Parsons School of Design for my MFA; a period of transition that informed my current landscape paintings in both structure and form. The second painting, "Dusk", is not only a riff on the collage from 13 years earlier, but an exploration of color and mark-making which was used as a study for a larger landscape painting done from observation (Marion Square, Winter).

opening reception on Friday, March 1st, from 5-8pm

Angel Oak (V) Progression

     For my latest painting of the Angel Oak, I decided to document the progression of the painting as I worked. Unfortunately, I missed photographing the first couple of painting sessions where I draw out the under-painting, but for the most part, it's all here. Each photo represents the end of a working sessions, usually about 2-3 hours. At some point I'd like to edit it together as a streaming sequence like a movie. Anyway, here it is (it's easier to see if you click on the first image, then scroll through the thumbnails at the bottom of the screen):
