Paintings of summer

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

…a couple more small paintings from the same series. I have so many fireflies in my yard that it’s magical out there during the evenings. Will have to try to get pics. Both are 9″x12″, available either here (my EShop) or in my Etsy and 1000 Markets shops. Fireflies   Orange Crush

June paintings

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

New small paintings from the last couple of weeks. I made the panels myself by cutting up masonite and attaching the canvas. I much prefer this type of panel over the versions I’d been using, simply because they’re a little more rigid and sturdy. These all derive from a much larger painting that was scarred […]

Artists turned writers…and breaking news

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Two pop icons died today. One updated Astaire’s (and Kelly’s) moves, followed PT Barnum’s model for showbiz and blazed through the ’70′s and 80′s. The other was known for her hair more than her acting. I listened to part of a newscast about Michael Jackson and while the claim was that he broke the racial […]

Wet strawberries, tractors and canvas panels

Friday, June 19th, 2009

It’s not always evident to the home gardener how much time goes into actual picking. Life is dictated by weather and gathering the fruits of one’s labor – which becomes just more laborious. I’ve been out almost daily to pick strawberries since late May. Over the past week it’s been so wet that I missed […]

Flower paintings and early summer

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

June has been rainy and cool here in southeastern PA, and the peonies are sadly gone, although I have about 4 new paintings of them. My antique roses are now in full bloom and I’m still picking strawberries on a daily basis. The corn is 8″ high and my transplanted tomatoes are looking healthy and […]

Drawings and berry season

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

It’s strawberry season and the 50 plants have taken over two of my garden plots. That’s about 10′ x 30′ total. The asparagus and blueberries are competing for space and I’m too lazy to weed. So I go in there like an explorer, looking for hidden red berries under all the brush. Even the big […]

Interview with artist Victoria Veedall

Monday, June 1st, 2009

I’m discovering quite a few gallery exhibiting artists with BFA’s and residencies in their background turning to Etsy or other online retail art sites like the more upscale 1000 Markets. These artists may still be in the gallery and museum system, but for smaller works they’re using online retailers and can often supplement their ‘straight’ income […]
