I only had to move one of the large paintings today, one that I can pick up and move myself. However, I cannot carry it up five flights of stairs by myself so I offer extended appreciation to my friend Guy for painting-moving above and beyond the call of duty, and also to his wife Melissa who provided the essential third set of hands at all the critical moments. So while you're browsing the web, go check out Guy's new photo-a-day project.
This is after Henri Matisse's 'Portrait with a Green Stripe' but in the reproduction I was using, the two sides of the face were much more similar in color, both yellow ochre. I thought this would be a simple exercise - bold lines, flatish colors - but this was that quite common case where an image that looks simple, simply isn't.
From the fourth floor kitchen, the setting sun could still be seen, lighting the skyscrapers Down below, a steady march of people headed for BART (the subway/metro) in complete shadow. Back to work for me.
Artist, Analyst, Aikidoist, Alexander Technique Teacher-Trainee.Artist: I've been living, working and exhibiting in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost 20 years. My subject matter ranges from portraits of people and animals to almost abstract paintings of plant forms and light. I paint in oil, acrylics, & watercolors, with oil paintsticks and watercolor markers, and with digital media such as pressure-sensitive tablet and Studio Artist software. I draw with anything I can get my hands on - sticks on wet sand and fingers on frosted windows, chunks of wood freshly burnt into charcoal and children's toys such as etch-a-sketch and magna-doodle. I also take landscape, figure, animal and street photographs, have played with printmaking (mostly monoprints) and have dabbled with sculpture in steel, wood, clay and neon.
