Love and Hearts. Happy February all! As the winter rolls by bringing us more cold weather, I have been consistently staying inside sketching and painting with my recently acquired tabletop easel. It has allowed me to stay focused on artmaking and not get distracted from the cold outside studio. With this I have fallen back in love with oils. The smell, the malleability, the earthy, yet vibrant color. Ahhhh, there’s nothing like it!
Before the Georgia Snowpocalypse of 2014, Marie and I made a most invigorating trip to Atlanta visiting our friends Nick and Meredith. We travelled around to amazing galleries in the area including Mint Gallery, Beep Beep Gallery, Whitespace, Poem 88 and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. Truly amazing and inspiring experience seeing all the astounding work in these spaces.
Without further adieu, this piece, “C is for Carl” is the latest in my ongoing series, “It’s a Wildlife”. This series examines the industrialization of animals and repercussions of how far we have become separated from the farm, wildlife and nature itself. This one and others are available through Xanadu Studios. Click here to purchase!
Until the next 30 moons…
