Abby in Ballet Costume by Andrew Daniel

"Abby in Ballet Costume" by Andrew Daniel
30" x 30" oil on wood panel
contact artist for purchase

My daughter performed i this costume for her Spring Ballet Recital last year. It was fascinating to see her showsuch control and grace, usually dance class is in my mind as a coordination of pick up and drop off times. I was so surprised to see her up on stage with the other students showing such an improvement in her skill level, so self possessed. 

Painting this piece was a novel challenge, with the subtlety of the transparent Tutu and the bold red checked pattern. 

This piece is on exhibit in my solo show at the Upstairs Art Gallery in Umpqua Bank in Arcata until the end of the month.


"Driveway Maple," by Alicia Tredway

'Life Break' by RK Schlueter

Oil on 12" panel
The process is the fun thing, following creative impulses is all. The stencils chosen are not my designs, but taken from stencil books. Using stencils gives me immediate gratification and satisfies an  urge to meld abstract gesture with representational form. Transforming old work into new work makes good sense to me now. Connecting with other artists through the merging of energies used to make the artwork is very exciting, though I will never meet most of them, we have a connection through the artwork.
