Broad Ripple Art Fair this weekend!

Imagine yourself sitting at the bottom of a hill and you look up to see a beautiful evening sky with a hint of pink, surrounded by a sea of color. This is my newest painting, “Under the Blue Sky”. It will be for sale along with many others at the Broad Ripple art fair in Indianapolis.

When I started this painting I knew I wanted snapdragons with a lot of texture. The sky, then the snapdragons then I wasn’t sure which way I was going. Intuitive painting is putting down paint on a canvas and then eventually it will turn into something to work with. You stand back and start seeing different elements, shapes, colors. Check out the Indianapolis Art Center site and come visit us at booth 117.

 

Work in Progress

Here I started a new painting on a 36 X 36 gallery stretched canvas. It is mixed media and I wanted to make the backgrounds interesting and block it off to give it space. I used pretty much some neutral tones. Blues in various tones were definites that I wanted to use. Right now this looks like a patchwork quilt but it won’t end up that way. It is all in the building process.

Here is my work in progress. I had to stop for the day and pick it up tomorrow. On the 20th of August I will be heading to Greenwood Indiana for the Wammfest to participate in their art fair. The information is on my homepage on the right side. This will be a good addition to my gallery. I haven’t done a show since Kalamazoo in August and I am looking forward to it. Thanks for stopping!
