Sunday Studio Time
Drawing upon my collages as studies, I set out to spend Sunday afternoon working on a few paintings on the Angry Landscape series. The lighthouse, still unfinished, comes from a photo I took on the Project Puffin boat ride back from Eastern Egg Rock in Maine, which I may make into a diptych, doing a daytime version of the lighthouse as well. The upcoming December exhibition at Ripe Art Gallery is giving a me a deadline to put together a cohesive statement about man vs. nature. In my narrative, however, nature is winning.
As for the owl, Seatuck is hosting a 'Spooktacular' Halloween 5k run, with artwork as prizes. Olivia completed a spotted owl for the event, but I went for the great horned owl since he looked, well, angry.
