Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe. It was great to see the unusual ones, the more abstract cloud scapes were amazing.
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.

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:

There is an exhibition at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art up right now that works in tandem with the "London Calling" British Art Exhibition at the Getty Museum (on view until Nov 13, 2016). The Santa Barbara show focuses on British art from Whistler to WWII, which is exactly where the Getty show takes off. It's well worth the visit.
There is a gem of a show at the Getty right now, called London is Calling. It's about post-war art in London, focused on six artists: Bacon, Freud, Kossoff, Andrews, Auerbach, and Kitaj.
This is Michael Andrews' "Thames Painting, the Estuary", 1994-5. The wall label reads: "... On a trip to Canvey Island in Essex he made sketches, notes, and photographs of lugworm diggers and men fishing. These figures and a group taken from a photograph of late Victorians standing on the end of a Thames jetty are positioned looking out to sea, giving scale to the painting. Sand and ash are mixed with the oil paint, adding to the strong sense of place."
