Flashback 2010: Ready for 2016

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.

Studio Happenings

A few months ago I bought One Shot Enamel paint, finally opened the container and started to apply it to one of my canvases. Although the enamel was intended for some hand lettering I wanted to experiment with it. I have been experimenting with different materials to explore some possible avenues.

Reception: Frank Juarez and Dale Knaak at UW-Sheboygan Fine Arts Gallery

Tonight Dale and I had our reception for our first eva two-person show. We decided to pair our work together for the curation of the show. We found that this is the best way to showcase not only our work, but also the work being produced in our studio. 

Here is a snapshot of Dale and Frank’s reception at UW-Sheboygan. This exhibition runs until July 31, 2015. 

Thank you to all that came out to support us. We greatly appreciate it!

UW-Sheboygan Fine Arts Gallery is located at One University Drive in Sheboygan 53081.
