Sunflower Field

"Sunflower Field"
6x12 acrylic on canvas board
Available through DPW gallery/auction

I am tired of winter! It has been a brutal one complete with sub-zero temperatures & snow. In fact, tonights forecast is for more snow to fall into tomorrow. By March, I am done with the winter and long for the warm sun on my face & colors within the garden.

"Sunflower Field" makes me smile - all those wonderful sunflower faces smiling at me. I can't help but feel happier! 

This lovely painting is up for auction at DPW right now, but also has a very low buy-it-now price on it as well. Here's a chance to have a bit of sunshine arrive in the mail to you. Perfect way to chase away those winter grays.

MMP Series #8 - Warhol's Zebra

6x6 acrylic on stretched canvas
image wraps on 1-1/2 inch sides

Andy Warhol is my next artist for the MMP series. You can read more about the artist here

His vast list of art pieces made it an interesting journey to explore & decide which one to feature. He is known so much for his pop art, numerous portraits of celebrities. And also for his simple items - such as the Cambell's Tomato Soup. I looked at all of these, but didn't feel the connection that I like to have when I work on a piece of the masters. However, seeing Grevy's Zebra definitely spoke to me - probably because of my graphic arts background.

I used only 4 colors - basically, red, blue & yellow (2 different blues actually) and some white. Although I have not seen Warhol's Zebra in person, I feel, from the photos I've studied, that it has a very limited palette. So I did the same with my acrylics.

I've decided to collect these small paintings for a show I will be doing later this year. My goal is to do 1 painting for each of the 30 top artists. Obviously, at #8 I have a ways to go. Plus I will need to paint a new DaVinci as that one sold. For now, you will need to contact me if interested in any of the paintings in the MMP series.

Chasing Dreams

"Chasing Dreams"
8x10 acrylic on canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction

I lost a dear friend yesterday. 
Sad, very sad. 
It made me think of this piece of mine, Chasing Dreams. 
And of something I wrote a long time ago.

And I wonder if you know me, or would like to if you don't,
and I wonder if you understand what I'm telling you upfront,
That it really doesn't matter if we're different or the same,
We all are dogs or sailing ships in Parker Brothers game,
and once again I ask of you to quietly refrain,
from saying that I'm wrong,
each day bears a song,
life goes ever on.

Take a moment today & tell someone you love them. 
Life is full of moments, 
but never as many as we think there are.

Foxtail Drive

"Foxtail Drive"
9x12 acrylic on canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction

A quick post tonight to let you know that I haven't abandoned art! But I have been sick and down for the count. I am finally getting better - thanks to a doctor with some great antibiotics. Will post again soon.

In the meantime, Foxtail Drive located in Fairbanks Alaska is up for auction on DPW. Its the blue & violet flowers in the center that catch the eye.
