Happy New Year!
Many have lamented 2016 and many are apprehensive about 2017.
The nice thing about a new year is there is a sense of beginnings. I wanted to share the last painting that I completed in 2016, “Daybreak”. This is an 11″x14″ acrylic painting. Is this as sunset or a sunrise? I guess this can be determined by your perspective.
Last year I completed at least 13 paintings maybe more. I am currently workin on a new commission piece and will share more about that in the coming weeks.
Hope you all have a Happy New Year!
This painting recycles work I did years ago. Originally I created 50 paintings of trees. Most of these pieces belong in collections. The few, I had left didn’t seem as strong without the presence of the other paintings so I took a couple of them mounted them and painted over it to create this new work, “Once Upon a Time.” The title is a reference to another series of paintings I created called, “A Moment, A Time.”. I like to reinvent my work and in this case the past meets the future in the present to create this new work “Once Upon A Time”.
The Kennedy Gallery texted me that one of my old paintings, “Whitney Ranch” sold. This was a special painting for me in that I completed it during my Graduate studies. It was one of the first paintings that got me excited about the possibility of looser more impressionistic work.
Always good news to sell a painting. We have a saying at the Kennedy Gallery, “Everything Sells Eventually.” I want to thank the Sacramento community for their support of my work!
While, I am currently out of stock of prints, I will be getting some more made. If you see a painting that you would like a print of like or comment on it.
