Phase Two Complete; Starting Phase 3

Here's how The Arrow of Time is shaping up. The background colors (Phase 1) and the wood grain (Phase 2) are done. Now I'm glazing in a slightly darker color on the woodgrain lines to give them more depth.

Narmada Vineyard

Last Wednesday I hung a show out at Narmada Vineyard in Amissville, VA. The show is called "Earth and Sky," since it features several pastel early evening skyscapes and a number of bucolic landscapes. Also showing: two still life paintings with wine and fruit, and a painting of grapes on a backlit vine.

Here's a sample:

The show will be up until early August.

Three Women, Coming Down to the Wire

I'm not sure how much I still have to do on this one. Once the background dries, I'll see if it needs a final coat of paint to smooth it out, and there's a little finishing work here and there on the edges of things. And: is there enough contrast between the hair of the woman on the right and the wall behind her?

The wall looks patchy because the paint's still wet.

Something New

Back to work after a few days' hiatus, but one of them, at least, was a day devoted to marketing: I hung a show yesterday at Narmada Winery out in Amissville, VA. It's quite a lovely setting, and it was a very pleasant visit. The show will be up for 3 months. Photos coming soon!

Meanwhile, here is the start of a 9-panel piece inspired by the wonderful series on the Science Channel--- particularly Brian Cox's "Wonders of the Universe," Neil Tyson De Grasse's "Cosmos," and of course the inimitable Morgan Freeman and "Through the Wormhole." This one is called "The Arrow of Time."
