A Few Nests

December 11, 2014

10-11 nest_2

































There are still a few nest images available – drawings, paintings, framed, unframed, small, medium, large – but now is the time to claim one if you are interested.  All of those shown are oil stick on paper. The top two are 7″ x 6 1/2″ and Terra is 8 1/2″ x 11″.  These are image sizes; Sure and Terra are both framed. And there are more nests ready for the right home. Have a look!

This summer I took a short course in monotype at the VMFA with artist/printmaker Chris Palmer. It was only four classes – an appetizer, a teaser – just enough time to distract me from the work in my studio and make me want to be in the print studio with the press all of the time. If you are unfamiliar with the term, monotype is a printmaking technique that produces a unique print when an inked or painted plate of some sort is printed onto paper using a printing press. That is an extremely limited definition; in truth, the techniques and possibilities for monotype are many, if not infinite. The scientist in me just can’t resist experimenting with different materials, techniques, and ideas. Consequently, I never really got around to doing what I had imagined I might. I was intrigued by the possibility of using newsprint as a plate that I could work on at home using water-soluble wax crayons and then printing with the press on paper that had been soaked in a water bath. The images above are two samples of my experiments; the second print is still in progress. There will be more, and I can’t wait to get back to it!!

Recent Landscapes

February 4, 2013

These are two recent landscapes that just  returned to the studio from a small works show at Glave Kocen Gallery. There are a couple more on the studio wall. These two are oil stick on panel. The others are oil paint on panel. For more information comment here, and I will get in touch.

The View

The View – Evening

Historic Richmond Foundation is hosting the River View Event, a party and art auction on October 6, to raise awareness of the view of the James River that gave Richmond its name.  William Byrd II was struck by the similarity of the view of the James from Libby Hill to the view of the Thames from Richmond Hill at Richmond-Upon-Thames, England.  This is the piece I am donating.  It is a 12″ x 18″ oil on linen.  Join the party at Libby Hill Terrace on October 6 and have a look for yourself!
