what to post? what to name it?

This is a large piece that is done with palette knife and water soluble oils. I'm waiting for it to dry before I call it done. It may need some noodling. I should have a naming contest for it.

I should post something else, but I'm doing things that I can't show: framing things or rearranging things or ordering things. It all takes time. New work coming soon. I have couple of landscapes that are very close to finished and some abstracts looming!

I was layering on the paint with the pallette knife and thinking about all the artists I've 'met' online but haven't really met yet. My friend Nikki is having a show in Madison, Wisconsin and I look forward to meeting her at the opening. Click here to see her work.

my work accepted into ISEA

The International Society of Experimental Artists - ISEA is meeting in Grand Rapids this year and the exhibit is happening at the Forest Hills Fine Arts Center during the first week in June. This is my first year with a piece in the show and I'm excited that FULCRUM IN RED was accepted! This is a big deal- If I have work accepted three years in a row, I will be an ISEA signature artist, which means I can write ISEA after my name on my work.
