Doors open at 6:30pm.
My process varies from painting to painting. Over the past 7 years I have experimented with various techniques and hit a breaking point in 2012. This is when I took my first break from painting since I started in 2000. The break was a few months. Long enough to evaluate what I enjoyed about painting and applying it to future paintings.
About a couple weeks ago I gessoed 9 canvases and have not touched them since yesterday. This format brought me back to 2010 when I had the idea of creating small studies for larger paintings. A time when I was producing a lot of work. I enjoyed this format because it allowed me to respond immediately to what I was producing.
Here is a chronological sequence of my process.
I was recently accepted to participate in the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts‘s upcoming membership exhibition. This exhibition will feature works from local art organizations such as the Fond du Lac Visual Artists and the Sheboygan Visual Artists.
This year’s exhibition was juried by UW-Ripon art professor and artist, Rafael Francisco Salas.
Location: 51 Sheboygan Street, Fond du Lac, WI 54935
Reception: September 10, 2015, 5-8pm
Exhibition dates: September 10 – October 31, 2015
For the past couple months or so I have been popping in & out of the studio to pick at a few paintings that I started. Not sure where these paintings are going, but all that matters right now is that I need to paint, paint, paint.
