$50 original paintings available in Studio 104 at Artspace

The holidays are rapidly approaching and I have been busy creating a bunch of small original watercolors at perfect holiday prices.

Approx 8×8″ originals of Raleigh skylines, downtown scenes, North Carolina lighthouses (Cape Hatteras, Bodie Island, and Cape Lookout) painted on YUPO synthetic.

These paintings have all been sealed with UV archival finish and are available for only $50 plus tax.

These paintings were started as abstract images on YUPO.  I used a combination of razor blades, sandpaper, scraping with credit cards, and wet paper towels to create textures.  Abstracted images became icons of North Carolina.

I created a set of 50 images last year and only a few remain from the original series.  This new set has already been a big seller- if you want to get one stop by Studio 104 at Artspace for an affordable and unique holiday, birthday, or random gift.

Look forward to seeing you.

Watercolor- Fast & Loose class through Wake County Adult Education. Begins 5/30

watercolor lessons, Raleigh art classes, watercolor classes Raleigh, adult education class Raleigh, Wake County Public Schools

Front cover of the new Adult Evening Education brochure for Wake County Schools

 

Man, they will let anyone on the cover of magazines these days…..   🙂

Just kidding.  I was honored to be featured on the cover of the current Adult Education Catalog with Wake County Public Schools System.

I will be teaching a 6 week course beginning May 30th at Sanderson HS.  I hope you can join us as I focus on letting watercolor do what it does best- move in water.  I have taught a lot of workshops/classes lately on different techniques such as pouring or atomizing.  However, this will be a chance to loosen up and let water do it’s thing- move your color.

First Friday Artwalk in Raleigh- January 6th, 2017

I hope everyone had a great time (survived) the holidays and New Year’s Eve.

Friday, January 6th is Raleigh First Friday Gallery Walk.  Artspace will be open from 6-10pm.  Food, refreshments (including the kind that make you feel tingly) will be available upstairs, and as always- there will be lots of great art by 30+ artists on two levels.

Small watercolor painting of Raleigh skyline. Only $45 in studio. Series of 40

 

Come visit me in Studio 104.  I just finished a series of small relief block cuttings which, in hindsight, I should have never started since, unbeknownst to me, the idiots at Blue Cross/Blue Shield dropped my health care coverage in Novembers (but did not send me a letter until late December tell me about it) because they said I stopped paying.  Not true, my payments were supposed to be automatically deducted from my checking account every month.

I guess they were confused during open enrollment when I told them I was switching my plan at the END of 2016.  Since they are an organization you cannot argue with, I had no health care until January 1st.

Well’s its 2017 now, and nothing can be worse than last year or Mariah Carey’s performance during New Year’s.  So here is to a happy 2017 and a great First Friday in January.  Hope to see you.
