Studio Days & Nights

Plants and blooms have been a big attraction for one aspect of my art practice. Beyond being able to spend time enjoying a garden environment there are the endlessly different biomorphic shapes of the forms.

Recently some old family photos came to light and it is interesting to note that the wallpaper covering the rooms at the time was mostly floral. It is interesting to consider where ideas and attractions are derived.

The Dead of Winter

With Groundhog day solidly behind us our hopes have turned towards sun filled warmer days and the prospect of painting outdoors.  There is something about the sights and sounds that accompany being on site feeling the air and being fully engaged in the work of painting. In the meantime there is much to do in the studio.
