“Opus Magnum” WIP

This is a progress photo of my "Opus Magnum", a 40”x 60” canvas. The section I completed is a little less than 1/4th of the whole canvas. I'm working on it between other smaller projects because I don't have a deadline.

This piece is definitely a challenge for me due to its size and complexity but I'm enjoying the process very much.

Medium: Prismacolor and Luminance colored pencils, Neocolor artist crayons
Tools: tortillions, paper stumps, color shapers
Surface: extra fine texture canvas primed with Art Spectrum Colourfix primer

7th Graders Use My Art For a Project

This is a reproduction of my work “Social Network” by a class of 7th graders studying color theory. They each received a section to enlarge and copy with paint or colored pencils. Then the teacher put all the squares together.

This is the kind of copying that warms my heart and makes me proud to be an artist. I think they did an amazing job!

I made some progress on my "Opus magnum", a 40”x 60” canvas. The section I completed is about 10% of the whole canvas (10" x 24").

I plan to work on it a couple of times a week, in between other projects. This is my first tribute to Montana's Glacier National Park, specifically the McDonald Creek. 

 

Glad to Be Back!

After my husband's emergency surgery before Christmas, we both came down with a serious case of the flu. I'm very happy and relieved that we are finally doing well. Now I'm ready to get serious about my art again.

Below are the highlights of the last six weeks.

I wanted to challenge myself and started my largest piece so far, a 40”x 60” canvas. It’s my first tribute to Montana's Glacier National Park, specifically the McDonald Creek. I'm very excited about it!

My Facebook page was listed as one of Ten Facebook Pages about Art in 2014 on Making a Mark, Katherine Tyrrell's amazing blog.

My art was being copied and sold illegally as ‘original oil paintings’ by a company in South East Asia. I'm happy to report that, after contacting them, they immediately stopped selling the copies and profusely apologized for neglecting to verify the authenticity of some of their products.

I'm almost finished with my current piece and will post an image as soon as I get it scanned. It's called "After the Rain".

 

New Open Edition Giclee

“Ephemeral Journey” is now available as a 6” x 6” open edition canvas giclee. After the image is printed on fine canvas, I personally mount it on a 2” thick cradled board. Then I paint the sides with acrylic and apply several coats of gloss varnish. It’s sold for $99 from my website store.
