Tuesday Night Blues…

Blue Paint

Phthalo Blue, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue… I seem to go through blue paint more than any other color.  A few years ago a fellow painter asked me what color blue I use in my night paintings, and I had to laugh because I have at least 7 different blues in my paint box. Thanks to local independently owned Wet Paint Art Supplies (& the knowledgeable staff!) I have fresh supply of blues to test out tonight.

If you are in Lowertown check out the Wet Paint Staff Show , it is going on through April over at the Black Dog Cafe & Wine Bar

My right hand is on Vacation

Posted on February 28, 2009 by - Other Artists

This weekend I am learning to paint with my left hand, Dr’s orders are to let the right rest for 2 weeks, as I injured it last week, so I’m working to paint with the left.  It is taking a little longer, so check back in a day or two for images to be posted, but please check out the artist links below, these are my 3 picks of the week.  I caught the last day of  Gregory Euclide’s paintings today at the Groveland, and they were amazing in person!  Stopped for lunch at La Belle Crepe downtown Minneapolis, my culinary art pick of the week.  My 3rd pick, is local sound Artist Caly Mcmorrow, whose music I am listening to while I type, if you like what you hear on her site, you can purchase music there too & she has a calendar for performances-   Enough typing, I need to get back to left handed painting.

Sick Day…

Posted on December 22, 2008 by - Other Artists

What to do on a sick day?  It is not like it was when I was little, I almost remember sick days being fun!  I’m catching up on some emails and organizing some of my computer files.  Pretty boring compared to watching old movies from the library with my mom when I was a kid!

Blank Board ready to paint!

Three Regional / Local Artist picks of the week:

studio, some in-progress pieces on the easel, old pieces on the wall

It is a beautiful snowy night in Minnesota, everyone is moving at the pace of the snow falling.  I’m working on preparing canvases for a series of Snowy Winter Night paintings of St Paul MN (and a few early morning hour pieces too…)  I’ll be posting up in progress images soon, with plans to have the pieces complete by April for the Spring Art Crawl.  Check back in the up coming days for photos!
