Polo Exhibition December 20th

I will be in Sarasota FL around the 20th showing my latest paintings and drawings of Polo.
The exhibition will take place at the Sarasota Polo Club.

I am painting, selecting, and framing the work as we speak. An update is coming.

Polo Monotypes and Transfers

here are some monotypes and etching ink transfers.
These were done about 3 weeks ago before andrew, robyn, kinsella and watts came.

I like the more dark, simple tranfers than the line but maybe now I can put some color on them or washes on top.

The monotypes were really fun to do (printed from copper) they were basically a test- I don't have a press so I just ran them over with my car- with appropriate towels and so forth. 

all of these images are actual size- click on it to zoom in. Hope you enjoy them/ what do you think?

TRANSFERS ink and pastel

This week has been one very Inspirational week!

Today in the studio I have been getting close to the "Transfer."
I am using black etching ink, and pastels- with applied pressure on the opposite side.
I love the texture and the simplicity of the sloppy process.

In it all, I am trying to FIND ME A VOICE with drawing, value, and authenticity in my work. The more I work, the more I want to see a difference in not only myself but from others as well. Even though this body of work can be completely fine art, highly referenced horses and riders, I feel the stacks of paper have become a signature to me and they way I think.

My influences latley have been Fuchs, English, Pratt, Storey, and Vallejo.
A special thanks to George P, Francis V, and Dustin D. - enjoyed the visit!

All of these are done with etching Ink and with either a pencil, marker, or pastel applying pressure on the otherside of the paper. They are a growning body of minor works for my Polo show in Dec. All of these are on white paper 14 x 17, drawn under or around 10 min. I also plan on going back in with either arcylic or oil to carve into the obvious fat parts, or establish another color. What do you think?

I hope you enjoy the work.

Carbon foot print

I just set up a carbonmade account. This will be a temporary site in between setting up and actual website.
Does anyone have any tips to customizing it or making it more personal?!

Thanks for looking.

Studio Shot

I have been working on polo pastels and paintings of airports-aka living Diebenkorn paintings. Seeing Mark work with the PASTELS and GAMSOL made the process look so simple and easy. After almost atleast twenty pastel pictures, I have come to the conclusion that its impossible! But I am determined to make one that I like and stand behind.

Until then, here is the wall of shame in my studio.

My influences at this time include the lovely nudes by Brent W., Mark's Indians and thoughts, all my brother's ambitions, and George Inness. I am excited tonight.

Thanks for looking.
