Staring at the Sea

Staring at the Sea | 24×24 | Oil Encaustic Painting | CJK May this be a healthy and happy new year for you all.

Mini Plein Air Seascape Paintings

Small Plein Air Paintings are often inspiration for larger works of art. They capture a liveliness and spontaneity and act as color notes and reference when working back in the studio. Often these paintings are emotional notes — and tapping into that energy shows up in the brushwork. When feeling is conveyed via mark making I think its the visual artists closest link to performance art. We get to perform in the privacy of our own studio’s and hope the […]

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!

Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity.  A New Year marks change and optimism and watching the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. Capturing these special moments are […]
