Here are five very small abstract paintings in progress.
Testing out a potentially sweet jQuery plugin for detail views of my paintings/drawings. If all goes well, I hope to implement something like this when I change the design and focus of my website toward art instead of web development. Move your mouse around over the image to try it out.
Alright, I’ve finally processed the photos from my art opening at Urban Pearl last Friday. The paintings will be up til the end of March.
Thanks for the photos, Kirby!
My two abstract paintings are still progressing. Pay more attention to the one on the left, as the right one is still a bit weird. I’m thinking they’ll be done soon…
My abstract paintings are progressing mightily. My photography skills are not.
(In Progress, of course)
Okay, I’m going to finally declare these six paintings done and done:
They’ll most likely be in my upcoming painting show, at $800 each.
If you haven’t heard this from me yet: I’ve got an upcoming three month showing of my paintings at the Urban Pearl Salon in Boulder.
I may be showing these in my January show at Urban Pearl in Boulder.
These small acrylic on canvas panel paintings have been previewed in progress before, but here are the final versions:
A few weeks ago I got six absolutely gigantic stretched canvases (36×48 inches). I’ve started a triptych with three of these and have been documenting its progress. It’s maybe about halfway done, but who knows? Anyway, here is the process so far:
(This is when it turned into an accidental representation of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Not necessarily a bad thing, but not what I’m going for.)
(Still in the de-thrillerization process. And that’s how it currently stands.)
I really loved my time at the Kansas City Art Institute and all that institution taught me about learning how to learn. The school was excellent in my opinion, and I cannot discount what the professors and curriculum taught me about good art.
That being said, it is awesome to be able to make art without trying to stay within the confines of an assignment or threat of critique. Most critiques I’ve been involved with have not done anything to improve my art.
Sure, critiques are excellent opportunities for others to go on and on about making no sense at all, but I’m done with all that. My art is something that I have critiqued within myself, and any other blathering about it is cool and all, but not necessary if one is completely sure of one’s work.
Here are three more large acrylic paintings that are looking almost finished, but still in progress:
Some images of recent studio activity for anyone who’s interested.
This afternoon I put some paintings up at a coffee shop on The Hill in Boulder. Kind of an interesting space, as it was once a movie theatre lobby. My paintings are hanging in the spaces in which movie posters once resided.
