Letting it all hang out

Showing the beginning stages of a painting is a little like wearing your underwear on the outside of your clothes. And, of course, it’s the stuff your mother told you not to wear, in case you were ever in a car accident.  That said, I find it a very useful tool to show how a painting happens. Starting today, I  am showing a new painting on a page of this blog, that for the moment, I’m calling  The Rites of Spring. Check it out as I go along.

  1. Hi Anne,

    I was just thinking the other day that I’d love to see your paintings in stages. I am a huge admirer. Your work has that illusive “it” quality. That thing that so many artists can’t achieve. I’m not sure if it’s maturity or not. I’ve seen college students with “it.” Anyways, I look forward to seeing more of your work and your process.
    I know you offered a class at Carrie’s studio. Will you ever be teaching an artists time management class? I say that tongue in cheek… sort of.
    Thanks for sharing your work and thoughts!


    • I have often thought about doing that. If you are on Cary’s email list at Whidbey Fine Art studios, you’ll be one of the first to know. That might be a good winter saturday class. Thanks again for your kind words.

  2. It is great to see how your underpanting looks in light of how lovely the finished piece was. Thanks again for taking me on the garden tour. I have heard back from my friend Hugo, in Guanajuato. He is an accomplished monoprint artist who runs Carol Summers B and B in GT, MX. I want to stay there next October during the Cervantino, just to take in the music, the textiles etc. Love the way the colors work- everything seems so high contrast, but that maybe an illusion.
