I don’t have pictures right now. But as for newest paintings, I sent one in ink on claybord to the “Something Special” show at Arts Underground on Friday. That show open on the 7th, and it sounds like the snacks themselves will make the opening worth attending: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=328231620617253&set=a.238590422914707.54036.234791499961266&type=1&theater
Tracking down the poster made me realize two things: the fabulous Fawn Fritzen http://fawnfritzen.com/ will be singing, you can dress up as much or as little as you want (Yukon formal generally runs toque to gown, and sometimes both), and artists on site will create portraits of you if you wish. Wow. 5-8 p.m..
I also painted a 30×40″ raven about a week ago that’s on display at Cadence Cycle Seasonal Gallery. Gallery hours, 12-6 Thurs and Fri, 12-5 Sat. Hm. I will strive to get its image up here soon.
I’ve been creating clay sculptures recently too. Here are a couple of process images.
Clay sculpture in progress, unfired
This has been a good exercise. I’ve been immersed in my courses recently. It’s good to remember that I am in fact still making art too.
Some recent ravens. I’ve become partial to using a layer of interference gold, carving the raven, adding interference blue to the background, fusing, then details. These are all 5×7″ and $200 ea. I think that of these plus the 5×7 posted earlier, 2 will go to the Yukon Artists @ Work Gallery on Sunday, and 2 will go to the Yukon Gallery.
Actually, I painted 4 small ink ones while I was in Montreal, and two have sold already. I hope to get around to painting a couple more today…
I just sent many raven paintings to Juneau for my show at The Canvas Community Art Gallery in April. I’ll drive one big one down to Skagway on Monday.
I haven’t yet posted Saved, my series of encaustic collaged dresses made from the bits of things my Dad saved to work on his model trains and didn’t get to use. Also, I need to post Dreaming is in Season, the piece I made for Exquisite North, a collaborative show at Arts Underground. Coming soon! Cheers, Nicole.
I think those are the dates. Anyways, recent ravens:
Walkin’ and talkin’.
Now all those ravens are 4×4″, $65 ea. This next one is 5×7″, $200.
Does this dress make me look fat?
Some paintings from yesterday. All 4×4″, encaustic on claybord (last one on plywood), $65
Beak in the air
Raven in a pink bra sold
Two from today. Tomorrow I’ll go logging (instead of blogging) with Michael and Michael. Maybe more on Monday.
