I crammed the whole late summer garden in a jam jar earlier this month and have been working on it bit by bit. Even the buoyant morning glories strangling the joe pye weed are in there. I am particularly interested in the transition from fully vibrant to crisply shriveled. 40"x40", oil on panel.
Sixth floor of the RISD Museum, looking from the elevator, through the lamplit galleries, toward the sunlit hallway. I love the way the glass display case captures the cool, bright daylight and makes it into a free-standing shape in the middle of the otherwise warm light of the room. That's the mummy case on the left with bit of a Chihuly Chandelier seen in the upper right of the case. 8"x10", oil on clayboard.
This Virginia road bends through the woods with a clearing up ahead. I love how the great green trees envelope it, an intoxicatingly verdant respite from the gazillion lanes of concrete Beltway nearby. I have included a few process shots of the painting and one of my pallet early on.
