Gestural Drawings

Gestural Drawing brings a freedom a spontaneity to a painting. It is for the artist, a chance to respond to a pose with expression,  it can be an emotional response. “The rapidity of execution suggests an aesthetic which is most concerned with the essence of the pose, and an economy of means in its representation, rather than a careful study of modeling of light on the form. You’re letting the pencil roam freely and quickly in order to capture the model’s movement […]

Open Heart

Open Heart | 48″ x 48″ | Oil Encaustic In every store there are tulips, I have been buying fresh cut flowers and some bulbs in pots, that bloom and I later plant in the garden. They make great still life paintings! It was just such a pleasure to paint a big canvas (48″ x 48″). The tulips have a life of their own, they seem to move even as you paint them.

As I was going about my daily life sorting some recent paintings, Lean on Me, from the classic Bill Withers song crossed my mind […]

This painting seemed so thoughtful. Much of what we bring to a painting is our own experience it’s our feeling and also the energy of the model. We are all giving off energy vibrations — sitting still […]
