I am working on a new series of paintings called, “Earthscapes.

The Earthscapes painting project creates a new series of 7 large format paintings that conceptualizes and contextualizes our relationship to water and its effects on society. The essence of my painting is landscape that discovers the effects of water and evokes the sense of place. The Evolutionary Landscape Series has been the focus of my artwork and Earthscapes has evolved o

ut of this work. In this project focus on imagery of satellite and microcosms view points of landscape and human relationships to it, and the behavior that has altered the ability for the Earth’s systems to cool the planet and my work will address the repercussions of action and inaction of the crisis.

I will blog updates and thoughts on process as I move forward with this new journey.  Please join me on www.USAprojects.com and help support this endeavor.

Course Proposal and Syllabus: 

Session 1

Born to Draw: A Children’s Drawing Program

The Born to Draw program is designed for children in grades K-6th. The Children’s Spring Workshop will be for children 7-11 years of age. The course is designed to teach observational drawing though shape relationships. The students will learn formal elements of drawing such as mark making, line, shape, placement, angels, textures, value, color, and perspective. Session A runs from January 26 to March 2, 2013

Each class is geared for the child to complete a drawing within the allotted 40-50 minutes or less time frame. The Born to Draw Step-by-Step Drawing program features animals and still life. Children should know basic shapes of the square, triangle, circle and oval. I encourage parents to have their children attend both sessions. Session B runs from March 23 to April 27

The classes will be offered for two 50-minute sessions with a five-minute break and time for set up and clean up included in the class.  Total length of class time is 2 hours.

Drawing and Art Techniques

Depending on the age and the child’s development and skill levels, it is possible to evolve into another session for a continuum of developing drawing skills.  Throughout the class the children will experiment with different media that include watercolor, color pencil,  pen and ink.

Painting by Cezanne Still Life – 1890-94 oil on canvas

Session 2

Drawing Still Life

Drawing from 3D objects increases your children’s knowledge of the effects of light on form, volume and line. Observational drawing teaches one to learn to see. Students will work with still-life setups, start with simple materials and compositions, then move to more complicated media exploring textures and concepts. This is a great class to begin studies in art or to improve drawing skills.

Painting of Giorgio Morandi Modern still life

In this session the students will be introduced to great master artists like Cezanne, Matisse, Morandi, O’Keeffe and Steir.

The second session builds on the first session, however, all beginning drawers are welcome.  Beginners who have not had the Born to Draw classes’ prior will start with the curriculum of the first session.

Warhol Warhol Everywhere

BY Rachel Wolff

A quarter century after Andy Warhol’s death, his work resonates more than ever. Several museum exhibitions are focusing on his influence in painting, photography, film, performance, and more

Deborah Kass, 16 Barbras (The Jewish Jackie Series), 1992,
a Warhol-inspired series with wit and irony added

COURTESY THE ARTIST AND PAUL KASMIN GALLERY, NEW YORK.

“The worst thing that could happen to you after the end of your time would be to be embalmed and laid up in a pyramid,” Andy Warhol wrote in his 1975 book The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back Again). “[I] like the idea of people turning into sand or something, so the machinery keeps working after you die. … I guess disappearing would be shirking work that your machinery still had left to do.”

Few artists are so eager and able to accurately assess their legacy, but there is something eerily prescient about Warhol’s grainy conception of death. His machinery, it seems, is still very much ticking away. His themes, processes, personas, and approach to making art are evident in everything from the ready-mades and Pop portraits of his direct descendents to the work of some of the most boundary-pushing conceptualists, abstract painters, and video artists working today. → Read more

Richter is one of my faves

This exhibition took place earlier this year. The last time I saw a Richter painting was at the Lannan Foundation in Los Angeles some 25 years ago. The images is stil fresh in my nimd. the he play with surface and imagery amazes me and  he is my painter’s painter. If you ever get the chance to see a Richter painting the travel is worth the time. It is no wonder that people are undaunted by the elements to see his work. I agree he is one of the best. Read and enjoy.

BERLIN — Undaunted by the layer of snow crunching underfoot, hundreds of art enthusiasts stood in a line stretching halfway around the Neue Nationalgalerie on a recent morning here, eager to see the Gerhard Richter retrospective.

“He’s the greatest living German painter,” said Monika Dietz, 60, an eye doctor from Berlin, when asked why she was braving subfreezing temperatures to see the Richter show. “With everything I’ve heard and read and seen about how important he is, I wanted to see for myself.” → Read more

 

Michael Heizer looked to find the right rock for 7 years

LOS ANGELES — The rock was the star as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art pulled the covers off artist Michael Heizer’s latest creation — a 340-ton boulder positioned to appear as though it’s floating in midair.

About a thousand people showed up under sunny skies in Los Angeles as the gigantic work titled “Levitated Mass” was unveiled Sunday on LACMA’s backyard, where it is intended to remain forever.

Its centerpiece is the two-story-tall chunk of granite that was hauled 105 miles from a Riverside rock quarry earlier this year. Since then, the rock has been carefully positioned above a 465-foot-long trench that museum visitors can stroll. → Read more
