The Evolution of a Painting


Sometimes a painting doesn't just happen but is the result of a lot of tinkering and editing. Here is the process I went through to get to the finished piece Sundown. Also check out the quick video of the painting changing.

ILL, March 2008

In March I was part of a group show titled Ill at the Sixth Street Gallery, Vancouver WA. And my painting 'Infection' was used on the postcards for the show.
Infection 16x20 Acrylic on Canvas
.
About the show:
Illness - it's something that affects all of us in one way or another. Even though this may seem like a sad inevitability, we can often find strength, compassion, and community through our illness. In "Ill", sixteen artists from five states explore the many facets of illness in ways that are both serious and playful.

Look who made the front page!



The Newberg Graphic featured my work on the front page of the paper! With a short article about my March show at Cusick Picture Frame. Cool, Cool, Cool.

Seaweed

Seaweed is one of my larger water themed pieces, based on the movement of seaweed under water. It is acrylic on canvas 36" x 24".

Scattered

Scattered is one my newest painting in a series of water themed abstracts. The rounded transparent shapes, movement and continuously changing colors of water are my inspiration for this series. My goal is for each painting to be a pool of color and organic shapes that invite the viewer to sink in and surrender to the current.
