Over the last few months, I’ve been doing a lot of tool paintings. I like the way my loose drawing style and field painting backgrounds contrast with the precise idea of a tool. Most recently, I painted this handscrew for art collector Don Alexander:
Is there a power tool you’re particularly fond of? A kitchen knife your husband constantly uses? Does your dad have a favourite chisel or socket wrench? Send me images and I can do a pop-modern painting of it for Father’s Day, June 15.
Prices start at $200 for a 12″x12″ painting. Other sizes are available. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christine and I have contributed new artworks to the Small Feats fundraiser for the Niagara Artists Centre.
Every Small Feat art work is one foot square and sells for $200. Each contributing artist has donated half or all of the proceeds to support NAC’s programming. It’s a two-fer, support NAC and support Niagara artists. All buyers can go home with their art Saturday night. There are over 175 works to choose from.
There will be a well-stocked bar – fine Niagara wine and beer, and complimentary tapas. It’s a great night for ushering in Spring!
In addition to making work for the one-night art sale, I’ve built a baseball-style scoreboard to track the of number of works sold. Hope to see you on Saturday!
