Category Archives: Art in Progress

Someone told me never to show works in progress except to other artists. I’ve decided you are ALL artists, and I like to (over?) share.

More Cave Art

My latest series, or perhaps sub-series, is explicitly incorporating the 32 geometric signs from the Upper Paleolithic cave art. Here are some. These may be finished. You tell me!

These are 4″ x 4″ on cradled panel. I plan to make all 32 of the geometric signs found in Upper Paleolithic caves in Europe.

These are 8″ x 8″ on cradled panel. Most have three or more of the geometric signs on them. The colour palette is influenced by the colours when photographs of cave art are digitally enhanced.

Bird Nests


In the past year or so I’ve done 25 completed paintings for a show at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver and along the way made various sketches and cards. This is one of 12 I made for Papergirl Vancouver 21012 – I gave some to friends and some to Papergirl.

These sketches were my first efforts at integrating Keith Wilkinson’s micro poetry into nest art. (I’m rather fond of this one, so I kept it.)

 

MarywithNestsatRoundhouse

I led a community-engaged eco-arts project through the Community Arts Council ¬†of Vancouver at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House in August, 2011, called “Flying the Nest; Feathering the Nest.”

We made some nests at the Roundhouse during an Eco-Arts Salon.

 

 

 

 

These are done on watercolour paper with mixed media (dictionary pages) and acrylic paint and acrylic ink.
