"Spring is Here" - SOLD


This is a bit of wishful thinking - spring being here (check title). But the sun did come out today and it was a lovely bit of warmth after all the cold. I know it's still snowing in lots of places, so sorry, but you'll be glad during the summer when it's nice there and 100+ degrees in Texas!
I've been digging an artist I recently found and thought I'd share. His name is Randall David Tipton - website and blog. His work is really quite amazing.

Lovely apple piece...glad that you mentioned R.D.Tipton in your post. I have been watching him for over a year and he is truly
inspiring...brilliant. Hi now has added a Feed Burner link to get posts from his blog. Now I will have TWO inspiring posts everyday.......

"watching him"...I should have said ADMIRING his work for over a year...bad choice of words :)

That little sun-burned apple needs to get in the shade with some aloe! Big beautiful bowl...

Me again; Tipton's work recalls an earlier post about values being more important than representative color.
Remember?

The artist you spotlighted, Randall David Tipton, has incredible power in his imagery.. His watermedia works were especially exciting, I thought. Thanks for sharing his website.

I know how you feel about the weather. While the winter's in Colorado aren't always cold, they're long. And, we all love spring!

Spring is just around the corner - it has to be!! We are having some much welcomed sunshine today. :-)
Love your painting. I like the pink inside the bowl. Also, thank you for sharing Randall's website and blog. I visited and - wow! He really is good.

Yesterday I would have thought your 'spring-dreaming' was not possible. But today, short sleeves with the windows open... very possible. Great composition Carol!

Hi Carol,
I have been 'watching' your blog for nearly 6 months and you have been my inspiration to start daily painting. I love your work! May I ask if you tone your surface just before you begin painting or start with the canvas already toned.

Carol Marine said...

Thanks, ya'll!

Jeanne, I do tone my canvas right before I begin painting. I like the surface just a little wet - it helps the strokes go on better.

I am a lucky person who owns one of Randall's paintings, and I wrote a post about him on my blog last year that also appeared on ArtPark, the site of Rob Jones, who with his wife first introduced Randall to the East Coast and represents him. I cannot give enough praise to Randall. Not only is a terrific painter, he's a wonderful friend.
