WIP update…still watercolor on balsa. Almost done?
Opening this evening at Denver’s David B. Smith Gallery is a solo exhibition of new works from artist Oliver Vernon (Vol. 17 cover artist), aptly titled ‘Tilt.’ The new show illuminates Vernon’s signature style of spacial chaos by using a technique of layered images of landscapes, nature and detailed patterns. Using both a colorful and monochromatic palettes, the works present a kind of anxiety that only further unravels with careful studying of the many contradictory elements present in the paintings. Created intuitvely, the artists says “Painting is like chess. Each move is informed by the previous, and opens a new range of possibilities.”
I went to see these the other day and HOT DAMN! They were really cool. Way better in person. David B. Smith Gallery also has some really great Gregory Euclide pieces. I am inspired! (But still not painting because I am lazy)
P.S. I got a jobby job! Starting at Thule/Case Logic on Monday. Awesome, but this also means less time to paint. Still, since we’re moving out to the boonies and my boyfriend and I will only have Saturdays off together, I might be more of a homebody. We shall see.
My brother is crazy talented.
Finished! I think she liked it - she asked for 3 more, one for each season. Looks like I better buy some more canvases…
A poorly painted sketch of Ms. Etta James. RIP <3
20 minute sketch exercise that doesn’t look much like MIA.
This is my mom’s belated birthday gift - a painting of her red golden retriever, Riley. He’s a pretty epic dog, hopefully she likes it…
And here’s the fourth…this is to go with my Electric Eyewear page I posted a few days back. They didn’t really go anywhere, unfortunately, but it was a really fun little exercise.
