Rana Rochat Untitled 88 48x42
Rana Rochat RR 82 48x 42

Rana Rochat 99 40x60
Rana Rochat works in encaustics on a very large scale that is impressive. I have seen her works at Fay Gold Gallery a few years ago here in Atlanta and David Lusk Gallery in Memphis. I love the loops, drips, and shapes that give the work a playful feel. Her use of color and depth is beautiful.
Please check out many more of her paintings on her website
Have a joyful Sunday~

Continuing to push the edges

Elizabeth Sheppell Fat Series #2 2011
 This is a quick shot from my studio of the second painting where I am creating new edges past the wood structure. It's amazing how heavy this piece is. It's was 8"x8" and now has a few inches added on each side. I am having fun exploring this direction.

 Mary Zeran's paintings have a light, transparent, and organic feel. The fluid openness is refreshing. I feel like I am looking at microscopic organisms. They are quite interesting and I love what Mary achieves with her layering. Please visit her website to see more Also check out Mary's blog where she updates about happenings in the studio

Ralf in studio 2011
I really like these layered  works by German painter Ralf Bohnenkamp. I choose a grouping of more minimal in color. They have great depth and he uses a lot of different techniques/substrates that tie into each other well. Please visit Ralf's blog to see more works. He posts on a regular basis.
Hoping you have have a creative Sunday~

Feeling FAT

I do have days I feel this way but today I am talking about the new series I am working on. Lots of  thick fat layering but trying to keep some fluid feel to them. I am really enjoying changing the shape of the panel with the added edge build up. Looking forward on adding to this series.

Just completed this small piece. Playing with the layers and having it hang over the panel edge. I am working on some 8x8's that have even more thickness...having fun with these.

Sunday Selection-Vincent Hawkins

Vincent Hawkins 2011 painting and collage
 I am so drawn to these paintings and collage works by London painter Vincent Hawkins. The collage/assemblage pieces on cardboard have a playfulness and surprise to them. I love the under-painting of the works on canvas.  Please visit Vincent's blog to see more, he updates on a regular basis.
Have a wonderful Sunday~
