Painting, meet Print. Print, meet Painting.

Here are a few more paintings I have been working on, all around 16 x 20. I am still using Golden Open acrylics, which I like a lot.  The colors are pure and rich, and they really do stay “open” and workable for days.IMG_7421

I see this group of paintings as a direct continuation of the woodcut Saga series. This acrylic painting of a mountain from early 2014… IMG_4625led to the creation of the woodcut Saga series…DSC_0022

And now I am here…


And so things are coming full circle.  In this series I am working the paint layers, and cutting through in a very physical way.   Another link back to the woodcuts I was making just before this trip to Iceland.

My approach to painting has changed so much in the past year.  It all began at Gullkistan, where I arrived with the intention of shaking off old habits, old approaches to painting that no longer felt right. Now my printmaking is influencing my painting, and my painting and my approach to color is influencing my prints.  IMG_7583It’s an old story, I know, the artist’s path of discovery.  But for me it’s as fresh and exciting as this new day!

    Beautiful. I happen to be reading “From the Mouth of the Whale” by the Icelandic writer Sjón (in translation of course) and your paintings seem to fit right in with the mystical book.

      Oh! I love his poetry and have heard about this book and the piece of Icelandic history it is based on. I’ll read it too when I get home. How did you hear about it?

    It’s lovely to see and hear something about your progress. And it’s interesting to hear about those “open” Acrylic colours. Never heard about it. Would like to test them.
    Have a lovely day and greetings to Iceland! 😉

    An excellent post! great work. I especially love “printmaking is influencing my painting, and my painting and my approach to color is influencing my prints. “
