"High Perch" - SOLD


(#996)
Check my studio blog for more pictures of my shadow box, and answers to your questions.
I'm really enjoying my new studio. I painted a larger painting yesterday that I'm quite pleased with, and a landscape from a California photo that got wiped. For some reason I'm inspired in my new space to do things I'm not used to - like paint different subject matter. I got some cityscape photos while I was in San Luis Obispo, and some photos of my son when we were camping. I haven't done a portrait in ages, but in my new space I feel like I can do anything. : ) I love it.

I can't believe what you can do with a few green apples! I guess a still life is just an excuse for a great design.....

love the greens with the background color.....I told you once you got in there the paint would start flyin!!!! You don´t wanna know what happens after you get the first spritz on the wall or "blob" on the floor....

Filbert, Buff little apples; they have ab's! Where I on the other hand...
Nice composition!

DSM said...

Me again. I usually am not keen on 'pink' (pink/gray) but that nice backdrop seems to suck most of the red out of the foreground.

In re-reading this post it seems you went from fraidy-cat-painter to super-filbert!

I like your use of brush strokes. They seem to be placed quickly and without much thought but they are perfectly placed like you planned each one out precisely. I need to test those waters a little bit. My mind get's in the way.

I also enjoy the way you use color. It really brings it all together.

Thanks for sharing Qiang. Wow! another great artist to follow!

Lorraine Shirkus said...

I love the color in these! Their happiness is contagious! I have been disciplining myself to to leave each brushstroke crisp as you do and find I see more life in my own paintings. Thank you!

I've signed up for the second time to get your work emailed to me but, again, it's not happening.

Congrats on the new studio!
