barn shoot

In August, I transformed my studio space, a barn, into a living space.  Each stable holds a room where you will find paintings and objects I have created.  In the main hall in the barn, additional nooks have been added.  I used the seasons as a loose framework for the color and textures employed while I looked to all four “corners” of the United States for stylistic inspiration.

mayor edna jackson

Is Savannah the only town in America the world where one of its citizens can make a conceptual (& respectful) portrait of the mayor (Edna Branch Jackson), ask her to get with a program that began 100 years ago and absolutely no one says a word spoken, written or “shared”.

Here is the featured article replete with said plea to our leadership in the March/April issue of Savannah Magazine.

anna wintour’s house

This Sandoz looks great in Anna Wintour’s Bellport house.  Just kidding about the last part.  I just learned how to make a texture map (How did I not know this was a practice?).

Find a great photo on the internet and place your work on or inside the file.  Fastidiously move and adjust pixels.  So fun.  Creative!

Make sure you give credit to the photographer and those publishing.

Thank you so much, Anna Wintour, World of Interiors (2010), Google, Pinterest and Jamie Bourgeois.

elizabeth winnel: read her lips

ArtInfo recently posted an article and slide show featuring painter and multi-disciplinary artist Elizabeth Winnel.  She discusses the conceptual underpinning and making of her series of “lips” as well as her involvement in the Laney Contemporary curated exhibit CURRENTS to take place at the Westobou Festival next week.

Winnel’s work on ArtInfo quickly went viral on their North American site.  The combination of her lush paintscapes and her no-nonsense discussion of her work leaves her name on everyone’s lips!
