Upcoming Solo Show

Join me for my One Man Show at the Turner Center for the Arts in Valdosta, GA entitled “Vessels of Light” opening June 12th.

Works will range from still lines to landscapes to depictions of Jazz musicians. 

Vessels act to transport and convey substances… Be they ceramic amphorae for olive oil, wooden trawlers for sailors and their harvest or the network within us that delivers oxygen and nutrients to our body. 

This selection of paintings are vessels that carry the story that light tells as it illuminates our world.

I have been personally inspired to share this story as a way of sharing moments I feel are meaningful. As we hurtle through space and our lives, I believe simple moments of beauty and wonder are profound gifts. As I create these images, I try to slow that inertia and distill it into a medium that we may pause in front of. These paintings are my way of suggesting that our lives are filled with many such moments and that our lives are enriched by the acknowledgment of that beauty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Allison Farms Plein Air- Fun and Learning

I encourage my students to consider the act of plein air painting as more than painting out of doors with the breezes and fresh air. The act of painting outside provides the opportunity for artists to use all five senses to soak up the experience. What we bring back….. the sketches, drawn and painted, the photo reference and the memories can contribute to a richer experience back in the studio. 

I would like to express special thanks to Randy and Susan Allison for the generous use of their property. The weather was exquisite and gorgeous sweeping panoramas and bucolic bliss made for a memorable event.

Victorian Plein Air Christmas

img_3204

Great time painting at night in Thomasville, GA for their Victorian Christmas event, Dec 8-9th. Great crowds, violinists to my left , Jazz music filtering from across the street, aroma of festival food and the ring of a blacksmith’s hammer as he gave demonstrations to the crowd. I had so much fun painting and meeting people I didn’t notice the cold.

There is a synergy between these methods of creative expression and the Music as Muse exhibition will showcase how music can serve as inspiration for works of art.
