Daily Painting #167 & #168

I didn't post yesterday but it was for a very good reason;

I painted ALLLL day instead at a workshop by Page. The chair is from her house, we painted interiors and did exercises based on values and warms and cools. I'll post those soon. I think when faced with a gray day, maybe I can imagine it warm instead? I don't know, but I'm going to try my theory soon.

Friday was great too - Avante Garde opened and it was super exciting - thanks to those who made it extra special. . . Avante Garde is up until December 6th at Oceanside 17, 17 Rockland Circle, Hull, MA -

And finally, today's painting is of the bottles. . . I've been avoiding glass lately and decided to go for it. The glass bottles were found in the ground outside by my parents in their first house - intact, nary a chip. . .


  1. Ahem. *tapping wristwatch* Where is Bumble Brie?

    Nice change of pace, these interior articles. The looseness is back - it's good you can shift back and forth. I bet you could paint that chain another dozen times from different angles, and get something new out of it each time!

  2. I LOVE your paintings! Your colours, the looseness, everything!

  3. I love how paint glass, you obtain wonderful effects...

  4. I love the chair painting. It reminds me of a Nicholas de Staal painting. Do you know this Russian artist's work. Also your bottles and chair remind me a bit of Morandi, except with a bit more heightened color than his mostly greyish ones. de Staal has more color and is more abstract. I always loved these artists, so the fact that your work related to it gives me and instant in to appreciating your work. You really are good. I could not find a way to comment under the chair, that is really one of my favorites after looking through the paintings.
