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.

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!

The abstract direction in my process is pulling me into more open-spaced territory as you will see with my latest work. I also continue adding new mediums to the recipe. This painting was started by taping a large piece of Saunders Waterford 200 lb cotton watercolor paper to my studio wall, then making large markings with a charcoal twig (my son created for me as a nature gift) and free-feeling loops and slashes of pastel. I like how the different figurative components in this piece appear unique to themselves but connect and interact with one another to write the story. Some of my other pieces are more saturated and dense compositions, but this work contains larger breaths of white space in between the delicate shapes and has a similar approach I use in my drawings. I hope you enjoy.

Flesh the Meadow, 2018, mixed media, watercolor, ink, pastel, acrylic and charcoal, 21″ x 29″. It is available here.

What a great turnout and support of Free Arts Art from the Heart Art Auction. This fundraiser for Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona was presented by Edward Jones, with featured artist Fred Tieken, and more than 70 other Arizona artists. Thank you so very much for generously attending and your online bidding! It is important to see our community coming together for our AZ children!

Here is a small detail picture from a work in progress… creatures are tucked here and there among the flora brambles. Some are sleeping. Some are curiously approaching each other, or you.
