In the Works: Art in Process

Right now I'm preparing the near-final output for my upcoming solo show: HUACA/SPIRIT of PLACE. It's opening on Aug. 8, 2015, sponsored by the North Vancouver Arts Council. It seems as much contingent planning and related work needs to be done for the public show of work as does the actual final painting wrap-up. As if a painting (of mine anyway) is ever finished. There's the organization, contextual consideration of works in the gallery space, public and private invitations, reception notices, etc. Even with a full-time curator aboard, it's much to do. I'm not complaining, mind you!

This painting, "Lac Salagou" was inspired by an unusual lake in southern France, set in rocky terrain with red clay and sediments, filled with fossils and sparse grasslands. The colors and feel of the place were extraordinary.
