In four days, I join forces with seven other regional artists in the group exhibition, Elements of Style: Color, Line & Texture. It all happens Thursday, July 12, 2018 from 6-9pm, coinciding with the special “Summer Spectacular” Thursday night Scottsdale Art Walk in Old Town Scottsdale. 7077 E. Main Street, Suite 6, Scottsdale, AZ. The exhibition will remain on view through Saturday, August 25, 2018.

PR SHOW GROUP ELEMENTS OF STYLE

This exhibition showcases the work of eight noteworthy artists based in both Arizona and Texas including Angel Cabrales, Charmagne Coe, ColorOrgy, David Allan Paul, Dan Pederson, James Anthony Peters, Daniel Shepherd, and Marilyn Szabo. Their work is original, captivating, pushing boundaries and redefining their mediums in contemporary art today. The evening will feature an opportunity to meet the featured artists, lively art discussion, as well as light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments,” states Nicole Royse, owner and curator at Royse Contemporary.

In Elements of Style, I will be featuring my latest painting, full of hope and humor, Flesh the Meadow. It is approximately 31″ x 39″framed.

Here also are some of my most recent works.

Feral the Foxes.2018.300dpi.full_image.ccoe

I continue to travel the side roads in my process. Incorporating new media – like feathers (the one below is yet another found gift from my son!), scraps of fabric, wood and string – is a playful investigation, and very spontaneous. These elements add literal and metaphorical dimension to my painted narratives. This joyful work is Feral the Foxes, 2018 watercolor, ink, pastel, acrylic, charcoal and found feather, 27” x 21″, unframed.

Well Spirit, Well-Spun.2018.300dpi.full_image.ccoe.jpgThis is another painting in which I’ve subtly gravitated in a newer direction and have collaged pieces and used acrylic for added texture. Well Spirit, Well-Spun, 2018, 12 1/4″ x 9″, watercolor, ink, pastel and acrylic.

And… one of my favorite figurative drawings so far this year. Hear Tell, 2018, pastel and ink on cotton paper.

Thank you for reading! Have a great July!

Pan Door.2017.300dpi.full_image.ccoe

This is Pan Door, 2017, 6″ x 6″, watcolor, ink and pastel.

My children and I spent much of their earlier years in a northern Arizona forest. When we went into the woods, it was the closest thing to church we attended. There, we played, layed silently in falling aspen leaves, built forts, discussed mythology, ruminated on spirituality and continually discovered more about each other and the ecosystem of which we are small parts. Recently, my son turned thirteen. It is certainly a right of passage. We now live in a desert city, though the forest remains deep in us. We open ourselves up to new kinds of ecosystems, life stories, friends, dreams and experiences.

Soft Ferocities.2017.300dpi.full_image.ccoe

Here is Soft Ferocities, 2017, 5″ x 5″, watercolor, ink and pastel.

I reflect often on our human emotional and physical neediness. We are prolific and impacting, to one another, to the earth on which we build lives. I feel, in a way, these rabbits are metaphorical for our fragility, as well as our innate ability to build/destroy.  Both fragility and the powerful ability to adapt our environments to ourselves have many facets, many ramifications.

My studio is messier than it’s ever been – it’s because I have been hopping from project to project. I’m sort of swimming in post-its, watercolor testing strips and various paintings stacked here and there. It’s fun to be involved in several things at one time. Amidst it all, there is always time for drawing.

Here is my submission for Illustration Friday’s theme: Heights. My thoughts on this… I believe hope is a precious thing. It reaches above us even while we are confused or pushed down.
