I'm excited to be included in this group show. It opens tonight in Telluride, Colorado. 

As part of the group show, "Objective Painters," the gallery made these great mini-documentaries about each of the participating artists, including yours truly. So flattered to be sharing the limelight!
------------------------------------------------------------
Objective Painting: Featuring 12 Artists, Curated by James Hayward, Opening Thursday Aug. 3, 5-8pm.
Hayward has carefully curated a wide variety of artists, primarily from the west coast, ranging from emerging young artists to mid career internationally recognized artists.
"I personally know, admire, respect and collect most of the painters I have included in this show. I chose the title, Objective Painting, as it seemed sufficiently open to include figurative, landscape, allegorical, portrait, nature, fantasy and the surreal. I have tried not to focus on any one aspect of image making,” says Hayward of his show curation.
View paintings from Tom Allen, Diane Best, Gregory Botts, Amy-Claire Huesits, Brian Fahlstrom, Frank Gaard, Steve Galloway, Ed Johnson, Julia Lackner, Rae Lewis, Max Maslansky and Dan McCleary at Telluride Gallery through the month of August or on our website.
Catalogs are available at TGFA or by request.

My Process: from Photo to Painting, Land Sea Sky

My processJulika LacknerComment

This is a peak behind the curtain of my process: I go into nature and take photos and color notes on site, then go back to the studio and often times will make a watercolor painting/study first and then a painting from that. Some stay fairly realistic to the original, some get more abstract in color and shapes. This one is of the Big Sur.

the inspiration photo: 

the watercolor: "Land, Sea, Sky (Big Sur #5), 2015, watercolor and gouache on paper, 22.5" x 13"

My Process: from Photo to Painting, Jalama II

This is a peak behind the curtain of my process: I go into nature and take photos and color notes on site, then go back to the studio and often times will make a watercolor painting/study first and then a painting from that. This particular one is of the California Central Coast, early morning at Jalama Beach. 

This is the inspiration photo:

watercolor: "Study for Jalama II" 2016, Watercolor, Gouache, Gold, Silver on Paper. 22"x 30":

...and the finished painting:  "Jalama II", 2015, Acrylic, Silver on Canvas. 36"x48":
