Paintings Reveal a Geek Artist

I'm so pleased and honored to have work in the June issue of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. It contains an ad for my work that includes three paintings: Day Star, Silver Flower and Near the Tannhauser Gate.

The work is available through Principle Gallery, Alexandria and Charleston locations.
I'm afraid these titles reveal my geek side a bit. The women are painted as allegories for day and night, but that seemed a tad boring as titles so I went looking for something more poetic. Day Star and Silver Flower are Lord of the Rings references to the sun and moon.

And a few details:

Super close-ups are a great record of the artist's journey through a painting. I was paying close attention to the color temperature shifts in the skin here. I'd decided that the light is predominately cool and the shadows are mostly warm with a slight cool reflected light on the far side of the face. This thinking helps to solidify a plan of attack when choosing which colors to use and where to use them.

Women Painting Women 2014 Call for Works

Two galleries are hosting Women Painting Women shows this fall.

The first call for work, with a deadline coming up fast later this month is from Principle Gallery-Charleston.

The second is from Richard J Demato Gallery in Sag Harbor, NY. He has a call for work with a swiftly approaching deadline later this month too.

I still believe in this very important mission and am inspired by the work and the artists that have been shown as a result of the group.

So check them out and see if you have appropriate work to submit. Good luck!

You may find more information about the group on any of my posts or on the WPW blog.
