Click an image to enlarge 2009: The Large and Small of it.
I love the challenge of painting within a smaller format, while retaining the intensity found in larger work. I came across 5 x 7 Claybord panels, at Daniel Smith art supply, and quickly became intrigued by their possibilities. This resulted in a series of intense close-ups.
I have a love of language, as many of my titles would attest to. It was only natural that my paintings would evolve towards the incorporation of words. When I use words I want them readable, but also to merge organically within a painting and not feel forced. The merging of words and images was spurred on when I was asked to participate in Art of the Written Word, July, 18-August 2, 2009 , at Lowell Art Works, 5205 S. 2nd Ave., Everett, WA 98203.
My largest painting to date, a 48 x 60 canvas, was created for Puff, it is entitled: The Fire-crow Unleashes Words of Love, Loss, and Longing that Awakening Quivers of Ecstasy and Angst.
The continuation of my smoking series gained renewed emphasis when I was asked to participate in Puff: The Art, Allure and Agony of the Smoking Culture, November 21st-December 20th, 2009 at Lowell Art Works, 5205 S. 2nd Ave., Everett, WA 98203.
