WY West Gallery show September 2012

I get a lot of questions about my influences. My earliest influence was MN painter, Shawn McNulty. Shawn’s work is very unique. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a painter that can bring out the under layers in his work quite like Shawn can. His work was certainly an inspiration in this piece I painted in 2010. Getting the colors from beneath to come thru just right was a serious challenge in
this piece. The middle stripe is a layer of pumice, which separates the top and bottom sections of this piece with a hard line and adds another element of texture completely. This piece really needs to be seen in person to be most appreciated. Your next chance to see this work and several others in my collection will be at the Wy West Library gallery in KCK. This is a favorite gallery of mine to show in and took over one year in waiting to show here. I hope that you will come by and see my work in person in Sept. 2012. Thank you.

Doing my part to support those that inspire me.

In support of the painter that first inspired me to put paint to canvas, I have purchased an original painting by Minneapolis artist, Shawn McNulty. Shawn’s work is truly amazing. I really like the contrast of light/dark in many of his paintings and I especially like the way he layers his work and allows the underpainting to come thru the finished piece. The piece I have chosen for my home is titled, Blue Rodeo. Blue Rodeo is a 24×24″ acrylic piece on canvas. I just purchased a house and I’m excited to get this piece hung in my family room. Pics of the painting in its new home coming soon…
