@ Hunt Modern in Santa Fe

Here are finally pictures from my ongoing show at Hunt Modern in Santa Fe. Lauren Hunt buys high quality, collectible furniture from Europe and does careful restoration and sells them here, to people who know to appreciate these treasures! I am very happy to have a solo show in her classy showroom and I am very pleased with how the art and furniture complement each other. Enjoy these photos!












Slow progress, but many hours

It takes time to work on the subtle stuff, but I have also worked to prepare for a surprise opportunity. On Friday November 10 I was have an opening for a solo show at Hunt Modern in Santa Fe, which is a very elegant store/gallery for modern high end furniture. A lot of Danish, Swedish and other European furniture, all vintage, all in top condition. I am very happy for this opportunity and have prepared most of my works that I have here in the studio. It is going to be very empty, so I will have to work even harder. I have washed my brushes and will take a break to go to Mc Elmo Canyon in southwest Colorado. I will mainly work with the horse in this painting, training him to become a friendly, cooperative and ridable horse again. Of course I will have good help and guidance from an experience cowboy!blueeyed3

No feelings of despair anymore!

I am making progress! I am starting to have fun! I am starting to feel like I can work this out! But still a lot of work remains to be done. I have to go over the horse again, all the face have a lot of work remaining, the collar on the boy, the girl’s dress and more! And then comes a challenge: the mother has a tiny brooch and it has a portrait of a sister, mother or friend. That is going to be the tiniest face I will ever have painted.blueeyed2
