This painting was one I entered into a competition here in Wichita. It wasn’t selected but three other small paintings were. They will be featured at City Arts here in Wichita, in a juried group exhibition opening October 25th.
This is oil on gallery wrapped canvas, 24″ x 32″
This is a mixed media piece assembled from discarded paintings and a drawing of a duck. What mood does it evoke in you?
At the end of August I spent a week in Sonoma, California at a week long intensive designed for participants to move into a multi-modal expressive space in order to access a deeper level of innate creativity. The artwork this week was not about a finished artifact of fine art, but about the process itself. The artifacts are merely participants in the journey and provide a place of dialogue and inquiry. There are six pieces here, from that week. One of the sculptural pieces broke on the journey home and is on the left on the small bench. The four paintings are hanging on the wire in my studio (all are on paper), and reveal a process of discovery throughout the week. that encompasses my process. Much was learned and opened as the week unfolded.
I am enjoying this type of connection to creativity. It was such a sweet thing to have a whole week to journey into it.
My fascination with this tea pot continues with a little conversation added in:)
BEARING THE SEEDS’ WEIGHT.
A little peak at work in the studio today. I’ve been absorbed playing with a cast iron tea pot. This is a watercolor painting on paper.
This is a mixed media piece combining graphite and collage. It expands on my Meditating Realities series.
