New Studio, New Country, New Work

December 27th, 2012


It has been a long time since my last post but I had some pretty good excuses.  To make a very long story short;  we are back in Portland, Oregon after three years in Christchurch, New Zealand.  We have a new house with a gorgeous new studio and there is a lot of new paintings to report on.  Here's a good amount of what's happening these days.

Work in progress
Another in progress.   There's a much larger version of this....

Even earlier stages...
Early stages
Port Hills in Christchurch.  Adjust the sky, then done?

Egg tempera, then glazed.  The real gesso is cracking so it may never get finished.

Earlier stage of "Grand Gesture"
"Grand Gesture"  Done!
Old landscape reworked with figure.
