Rainy Day

I just finished this little watercolor as a commission for a Christmas gift and even though I slammed it out in two days I am very happy with this painting. Because of the flat light in the scene I was forced to flatten my colors and there-by developed a style that I have been working at for quite awhile.
I'm not sure if these surprises are the essence of Art but they sure make it fun.

Greg,
Your work is very nice. I found your site from the FaceBook group. Your alley paintings are my favorites and remind me of the neighborhood in Denver where I had a show at Alliance Fran├žaise back in 2004 - I lived in Lone Tree at the time.

I'm sure you're familiar with his work but I always liked the cowboy watercolors of William Matthews - his gallery is in downtown Denver. Go look at it if you haven't already.

nice use of minimal washes and controlled detail. I like the work & especially the viewer's perspective as well as the subject matter. it's nice seeing someone painting something new.


good luck,
David

Hi, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
Essex
SS0 9XD
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

If you could add me as a link or give the project a mention I would be really grateful.
