Late Night Painting

mixed media paintings on panel

So I finally got my hands on paint again tonight.....it felt great....I been pretty happily full up creating glass art for my many upcoming shows.....so it was super fun tonight to get things messy again with paint.....

I'm not sure if these are done or not....I'll see how I feel tomorrow.....or the next day....it takes time usually for me to find my way with paintings......

and I will be sharing the new glass creations with you too....lots of animals, birds, fish imagery....

stay tuned....

On the Road.....

just back from a great road trip to the west koots.........this is the Kootenay Mountain region of B.C......funky independent spirits abound in that valley.....
old rusty license plates...
i found a groovy, totally old timey junk shop in a little hick town along the way.....i must say, i love hick towns....i'm not sure i would want to live there, but i could make it work if i had to.....
ya know, the towns without tim horton's or walmart or any other corporate chain type thing.....and far out, offbeat  characters.... this is where i picked up these old license plates....i love the texture and patina of this old rusted metal.....
soul shine table top
the soul shine buffalo painting is actually a table top for my traveling van.....and then a small buffalo painting @ the end....loving the turquoise and greens, the yellows and rust colours in all these pieces....

Brave Buffalo Hearts

it seems i always come back to buffalo.....when i am ready to paint, after creating some glass art, because at this point glass art almost always comes first....so yah, when i am ready to paint and i play with this and i play with that, and over paint and scrape and try to make something specific...for example the erotic show and the heart show i spoke of in an earlier post...sometimes i struggle when i arrive with a plan....

 with these pieces all 3 came together fairly quickly after i brought out my buffalo imagery.....

so, i guess there's a message there for me......

i still love buffalo........
