Space Oddities

I had a great time last weekend at the opening of the Space Oddity show at Push / Pull, & visiting the other galleries in the Greenwood Art Collective. These are my two pieces in the show - Red Planet, & Rocket Man. Each is 8 x 10", watercolor, ink, and pencil.

The next show I am going to be in is the 3rd annual Twin Peaks Art Show at Urban Lights studio in the Greenwood Art Collective. I am working on a painting for it. These is a little drawing I did to get in the mood:

An exciting opportunity to support Push / Pull Gallery & NW outsider art

I am pleased to report that Push / Pull, the gallery I often show work at, is looking to expand into a regular retail space with more hours. You can be part of that AND take home some cool art by being part of their Kickstarter. The rewards include a lot of cool stuff by outsider artists, including some original art by me. Please visit the kickstarter page and tell your friends!

Also, in Push / Pull news, tomorrow night is the Space Oddity show -- I have two pieces in it and I saw some of the other art earlier this week and it was amazing! Greenwood Artwalk is 6 to 9, I believe, but Push / Pull will be open till 10. The gallery is at 8537 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, Washington 98103. Head downstairs in the Urban Light Studio / Greenwood collective building to see a number of great unusual galleries, including Push / Pull.

This is one of the pieces that available as a Kickstarter reward:

Dreamscape 1

Here are better photos - well, actually scans, of the new painting. I am working on some smaller abstract paintings too. And tomorrow I am dropping off my pieces for Push / Pull Gallery's Ancient Monster show. I think that is going to be a really good show - you should come to the opening!

Abstract Watercolor painting

Most of the paintings I have done in the last year have been at least somewhat planned. I used to do more abstract and unplanned landscapes and I've been missing that so I decided to do something more free-form. Here are a few photos of the finished piece. I worked on it over a period of a week, in several sessions. It's 9 x 12", Daniel smith watercolors on arches 140 lb coldpress paper

Well, I've moved. Other than a few bits, and I have cleaning to do and I am still unpacking ... but basically i've moved. And I am getting used to my new place and starting to make art again. So finally new work to show you and new work on Etsy!. Here are two new 8 x 10" paintings that are now in my Etsy shop. They are both watercolor & ink.
I am working on new work for a monster show coming up at Push/Pull! I'll tell you about that in a few days :)
