Live Art

I painted this at the end of 2013 and just got around to posting. Took quite a while! But I’m proud of the results, it was definitely a challenge and so far is the largest solo painting I’ve done. Actually ended up being a self portrait of sorts since I used my face to get the expression I wanted on the painter. Enjoy, and I’ve put these images in the visions + ideas gallery.

The Butte from Amazon Park

The Butte From Amazon Park

Little gap in the vegetation gave a nice view to Spencer’s Butte across the running trail in Amazon Park. Painted as the seasons were changing; the bits and pieces of this scene resemble the way it looked on different days. The clouds were putting on a show on the day I started this. Acrylic on canvas 16″ x 20″. In outer world.

Cross Campus – landscape painting in Eugene

Cross campus

Had the chance to start painting outside again, now in Eugene, OR. This is a view through the University of Oregon campus towards the new Matthew Knight Arena, home to the UO basketball team. More from Eugene to come. Acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″. Part of the outer world gallery.

The Rabbit at Cloud Gate

A painting for my Grandfather, Joe Rodgers, who often drew the “lucky rabbit” while serving in WWII in the navy to illustrate the boat’s travels.  This painting was brought to the 2012 reunion in Chicago.  He would bring similar paintings to the reunions in the past but has stopped this practice in recent years.  I chose to put the rabbit (Bugs) in front of Cloud Gate, the public sculpture by Anish Kapoor because it was my favorite site when I visited Chicago a few years back.
