I had all these fabulous plans to upload lots of sneak peeks of the show but I just realized I’m getting on an airplane today. So check in with Corey Helford Gallery in the next day or two, they should have the whole thing up online soon!
But in the meantime, here’s a detail close up shot of “LL Scrub Jay” (full painting is 10 x 8 inches, oil):
Okay maybe I can’t stop myself — I also did a few teensy tiny paintings and I mean tiny. Three inches high.
And I did a couple of drawings too. (Sleep is for wimps.) I’ll tell you honestly — I started to do some walnut ink drawings, ’cause I thought it would be cool, you know, funny-cool, to do drawings of woodland creatures with walnut ink and I’d seen some really beautiful effects that a Facebook friend was getting with it. Well. Turns out that the skill set I have for doing oil paintings does not translate all that well to ink/watercolor type stuff — I overworked the hell out of ’em. So I’m leaving them all here at home. I think I’ve got a bit of learning curve ahead of me there.
But I like drawing and I like big gold zodiac earrings, so I did “Pisces.” (Pencil and gold watercolor on fancy paper.)
And now I gotta go pack! If you’re in the greater LA area, please stop by the opening at CHG on Saturday and say hi! (I’ll be the sort of bleary-eyed one propped up against a wall somewhere.)
