I have a solo show this month at Anglin Smith Fine Art in Charleston, SC. The opening reception is this Friday evening. The show has a variety of paintings, from pieces done on site in Charleston to paintings from Maine, along with a few still lifes. I love painting in Charleston, and I’m thrilled to be a part of Anglin Smith. If you’re in town this Friday come out to the opening and say hi.
The painting above is from my last trip to Charleston. It was painted in late afternoon, looking west on Broad St. It’s fun painting late light, but it sure does change fast. The color temperatures get richer as the sun goes down, which is a great resource for color ideas when I want to make the colors a bit more dramatic. I also like how the fast changing light makes me work fast and simplify the subject. The whole world turns into shapes of color and big brushstrokes. When it works, this is a freeing way to paint. This painting is 16×20″ and will be on display for the show.
