I just finished a workshop with Skip Whitcomb, a great teacher. Here’s a video I posted of a demo he did Friday. It’s on YouTube.

I’ve listed in the table below the remaining Telluride paintings available. I did give “Fir Street, Telluride” to the Opera House on consignment as they do continue to sell paintings throughout the year. If you’re interested in any of the remaining works below, make me an offer (will sell framed or unframed). Click to enlarge. CHEERS!

Great news today! I found out (thanks to painting buddy Walter Porter) that my painting “Secluded Cove” has been selected by Don Demers as a Finalist in the Raymar Art Competition! You may recall that I painted it for my solo show last month in Pacific Grove, and even have a home-made video of the process. It was also featured in the local paper. Here’s what the judge wrote:
“This painting works because of its vibrant color use and it’s calligraphy. i.e. the type of marks the artist has used in their technique. The feeling of the location was expressed through strong color and the subject was translated strongly by the artist through the use of the artist’s technique. These strong elements of color and technique made a familiar subject the artist’s own subject which transforms it into something new and more exciting.” – Don Demers
Here’s the painting. Wish me luck!
I love painting in Blackwood Canyon, just outside of Tahoe City. Andy Skaff and I paint there together when I visit. I completed this work for my solo show (opening April 13 in Pacific Grove). I took photos at interim stages, so hope to make it into a video as I did the “Secluded Cove” painting. I’m thinking of having both videos run on a loop at the show as I think collectors would be interested in seeing paintings develop. Then again, they’ll get to see them in the “ugly stages”!
As I wrote yesterday, I have a solo show coming up at Robert Lewis Gallery, so I’m painting like a mad-man to get ready, less than 4 weeks until the opening! Click here to view paintings in the show.
I painted this studio work, “Secluded Cove“. I’m not happy with the quality of the photo, but it gives you an idea. I am really happy with the painting, but have to figure out how to get decent photos of my larger works. If you have tips, let me know. I use a digital camera for larger works and a flatbed scanner for smaller works.
Click the image below and you’ll get to a page that will show you a QuickTime demo of the painting in progress. This is also available on YouTube.
