It's all about the Vertical!
With these 3 new paintings I challenged myself to create vertical 'windows' that give viewers a slice of the outside world. "The Green Portal" was inspired by a local bike path that is an oasis of nature here in Northern NJ. I used this as my design for a live painting event that had me transform a vintage door. You can check out the process and result here. "Scarlet Firethorn" is an interesting tree with red berries that I saw on a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West which is nestled in the desert foothills of the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, AZ. What struck me is the contrasting linework between the delicate branches and their shadows on the rooftop. "Storm Peak Slope" is all about the periwinkle-hued snow and sky - an unexpected result created by a late afternoon fog on a high mountain trail in Steamboat Springs, Co. If you are in the Denver area, you can see this and 2 other Rocky Mountain inspired paintings at the "25th Annual Gateway to the Rockies Art Show".
For local NJ/NYers, this Saturday from 10:00 - 3:00pm is "The Bergen County 55th Annual Art in the Park Show and Concert", Van Saun Park, Paramus NJ. Hope to see you there!
