Local Cliffs, Finished Piece

April 25, 2012

D Day for me is May 1st.  That is when Lynda Jones and I are teaming up to be The Featured Artists at The Old Courthouse Gallery here in Kamloops.  Lynda is a rare and amazing potter who specializes in highly burnished smoke-fired pieces and counts among her collectors the former U. S. President Clinton.

Here is the fantastic poster she has designed:

PAIR' A LLs E-POSTER MAY 2012 Courthouse Gallery

The Local Cliffs subject I’ve been doing studies of has finally been completed as a work I’m satisfied enough to allow to be matted and framed.

"Cinnamon Ridge Signal" 7.5" x 9", Arches 140 lb. Cold Press Paper

One thing I’ve learned through doing it, is that this small size of 7.5″ x 9″ is very pleasing for me.  It is large enough to include a good amount of detailing, and small enough to get finished in a timely way.

And now it is on to getting painting #2 for the show done before our May 1st opening.  Thank you for your previous comments which helped me in producing the final result!

  10. Oh thank you so much! I just finished the last of three new pieces and then matted and framed them. The cookies and muffins and coffee and all the rest will make their way to the Gallery tomorrow, and then we’ll see. This is a small, no nonsense industrial city, so I doubt we’ll need bouncers.
    I appreciate your many kindnesses!

  48. I just love how you support all of us, George–it’s fantastic, and a real boost. This is a difficult subject with exceedingly local appeal–a railroad town which boasts of barren rock. It has taken me a very long time to (a) appreciate this sort of landscape, and (b) find a way to depict it. Thank you again for everything.

    Lance, the cliffs ended beautifully, didn’t they? I love the composition of them. And the fascinating cliff detail. It seems to be a painting within a painting … and done within such a small space. I never imagined you’d end up where you did. It’s wonderful.
