New Solo Show at Swift Gallery in Battle Ground WA

Today I put up my new solo show at the Swift Gallery in the library at Battle Ground, Washington.  I've got a few portraits, some large riverbed paintings, and a couple sky-scapes, and one snow scene.  It's a mix of everything I've been working on over the past couple years.  I'm still working on another painting that I want to bring in and add to the group, but I'm pretty happy with how things turned out.  The show will be up for July and August.

Instructive Art Links, for inspiration and learning

Lately I've read some really wonderful how-to articles on various topics, and I didn't want to lose track of them because I know I'll want to go back again and again.  So here's a list of some of my favorites:

Howard Lyon's explanation of Color & Light.  He shows how and why we should select a limited color pallete, and how light works - with particular emphasis on skin tones.  Wonderful explanation and examples!
