The Bloedel Works:

I created these plein-air paintings in May 2018, while I was a Creative Resident at Bloedel Reserve, on Bainbridge Island. All of the works are Oil on Arches Paper, and were developed on-sight in the gardens. These works are an integral part of my current, ongoing body of work. I consider them my "primary documents" and they help inform the development of my larger, conceptual studio paintings.  Sales information below.

 

 

Reflecting Pond (wall of trees, tonal), Oil on Paper, 12" x 16," 2018.

 
 

Camellia Walk (late afternoon), Oil on Paper, 12" x 16," 2018. Sold.

 
 

Camellia Walk (twilight), Oil on Paper, 12" x 16," 2018.

 
 

Camellia & Fern, Oil on Paper, 16" x 12," 2018.

 

During my time at Bloedel Reserve, the idea of the Garden became a meaningful metaphor for Painting: the conscious cultivation of color and form within a specific boundary. This process of cultivation must not only allow for, but celebrate, change.

With this body of work I am investigating my perception through the tactile experience of painting in nature. I seek to realize my sensations through the formal choreography of painting.

These works will be available for purchase during my Studio Sale on Sunday, July 15, 2018, and for a limited-time online after the date.

In purchasing one of these paintings, you agree to receive the work at a slightly later date. I am currently using them as reference material in the development of new paintings. By purchasing one now, you will be supporting this ongoing body of work. Additionally, patrons will agree to the temporary loan of the work to a future museum exhibition.

Paintings are mounted on cradled wooden panels (7/8" deep) and hang easily. A professionally-made shadow-box frame can also be arranged.

Happy to set-up payment plans.
