The online art magazine, Artists on Art, asked me to write an article for their winter issue, which is out now. In the beginning I struggled to describe my priorities as a painter, but I’m proud of the final product. I tried to give an honest description of my struggles to make better work. There is a fee to read the magazine, but they tend to have very good painters write for them, and some interesting articles. It’s definitely worth checking out.
This painting is on it’s way to the Debra Huse Gallery for a show of my paintings this February. The opening reception is the evening of Friday, February 6th. I enjoyed composing this scene of beach bums. Even though the painting’s most obvious characters are people in beach chairs, the seagulls steal the show. I love how they strut around in the foreground.
