I rearranged my studio a few weeks ago. (mainly i think it was procrastination... i have been uninspired recently as well as having to prioritize what life has dealt me as of late) the good news - my studio was in desperate need of a good cleaning and organization!
my 4th annual workshop at kiawah was last week and it was amazing how easy it was to pack up the supplies (i think my spic and span studio helped)
the week had full days of painting, an amazing and patient teacher, Ian Roberts and a cast of wonderful woman students. old friends that i loved seeing (and rooming with) and new friends that i loved laughing with. the group meshed so perfectly!
this was the first year i actually wanted to skip lunch and continue painting! darkness came too soon in the evenings. most nights i would skip showers just to get those extra minutes for brush time! the days flew quickly by and Wednesday came too soon! the last nights dinner was wonderful (i did shower) new friends are now old friends. delicious food, wonderful wine and great conversation! oh and the dancing was a bonus!
the kiawah workshop no doubt has reignited my inspiration... i most enjoyed painting this one today! the segments joined together like magnets...listening, always listening.
don't forget the music in life. This will be going to The Columbus Museum in Georgia for "let There be Art" show . SOLD
full day of painting. finished this one after having it in the studio for months. layers , layers , layers ... the way i love to paint. as always inspiring music...took some breaks to stretch by dancing. Gift Sean 2012
this particular painting has been in the works for about 6 weeks. started a number of times and scraped a number of times. worked into the night after 10 days without the brush. new puppy addition has been occupying my time. haven't a name for the 10 week old pup yet... still thinking it over. a good name for a painting i knew was completed.
now "thinking it over" ...a name for the little girl pup.Nelly

the first stretch of my run....a daily mental, as well as physical exercise . i'm thinking a series might be in the works. previously painted "Third Turn" and "Rhythmic Elision". The trail is a constant changing inspiration.
I moved to Charleston 20 years ago. With no previous training I decided to try painting. Acrylics first, easy clean up, then switched to oils, more freedom. I am inspired by the natural world around me. I love colors and shapes that I see outside, I try to make them come alive on my canvas. The sense of movement in my art is influenced by music, it is an essential element. Moving while I paint keeps the energy flowing. I use a palette knife to carve lines and shapes to construct a canvas full of movement. I love to build up layers of paint so just a sliver of the original peaks through. The blueprint of the landscape is secondary to the placement of the blocks of color. I am a member of the Charleston Artist Collective, a web-based business. I also show my work at Atrium Gallery in Charleston, SC. I paint in my home studio in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant, SC. I started painting to fill my walls...now I am an "artist in progress"
