There is something necessarily valuable in the works done with our hands, whether it is knitting, painting, making something, playing an instrument, typing, cooking, cleaning, communicating or sharing a helping hand. These are all authentic ways to partake in our human existence and appreciate each other.
In my latest video I am pleased to wear a hand made hat that keeps me warm and inspires the artist in me simply because it was a shared gift.
I share my painting exercise of 37 stroke paintings and my process for plein air work in my latest videos hoping that you may enjoy this handiwork of mine.
Thank you for being a supportive subscriber. Best to you and your handiwork.
As the evening light hits the totem poles on Burnaby Mountain, I explain that painting something already made can be an inspiration. I limit this 11 x 14 oil painting to 37 brush strokes while counting the strokes with cones that I found with my hands.
A 37 stroke painting in oils, I make simple shapes using negative and positive painting to bring about an impression of totem poles on Burnaby Mountain responding emotionally with my hand. Set to soft music.
