Mending Fences

I've been on a painting frenzy this past week.....a quick weekend getaway to Scottsdale inspired me in a big way. We walked through the galleries, ate fabulous dinners in the trendy restaurants and met some wonderful artists. The economy has really hit this art mecca hard but the artists who are surviving are optimistic for better times. They're gearing up for their "artist season" kickoff which happens every October -- I'm hoping to go back in a few weeks and join the celebration!
Here's one of several paintings I finished this week. It's an 8" x 8" x 1/2" diptych on canvas with acrylics, charcoal, pastels, and markers. I've named it "Mending Fences."


  1. I think you have that "light" thing down just fine! I will try to send you some of my student's work soon and some of my own too. Love Mending Fences and the yoga angel in progress you sent. Sorry I am anonymous- can't get the other choices to work. My computer skills are elementary!

  2. I've always loved Diptychs. There's geeky about a painting spanning multiple canvasses that appeals to me. By the way, I'm the son of the Anonymous (non-computer saavy) commenter. She's got me following you now too.
