New Paintings

I've been in the studio working on the next group of paintings to go to a solo show in Homer, AK opening August 1st at the Bunnell Street Art Center. Above, "Search" 18"x24" acrylic and gold leaf on wood. $450.00

These paintings are a continuation of the work I was doing this spring: much imagery of plants and auspicious objects. I love working with acrylic ink and I do all of the drawing with a Joseph Gillot's 1122 'Super Falcon' steel calligraphy nib. After 10 or so paintings, the steel wears down so that I can't get a really fine line out of it.

Not sure what to title this one, yet. Size is 18"x24", acrylic and acrylic ink on wood.

Do you have an idea for a good title?

Other than painting:

My garden is looking beautiful, the sun is shining, and I found out this week that although my Dad does have some health problems, he doesn't have lung cancer after all. Big relief.
