CHALLENGE
To paint 222 tiny paintings in 222 days beginning May 22, 2021. Culminating on the eve of the New Year 2022. Each painting is painted intuitively, often without preconceived thought or intention. Very much an expression of the moment—a free, unrehearsed, raw experience. Letting each piece turn itself inside out until it rests. A visual journal to let me experiment, learn, push, and complete paintings in a short period of time.

 

MEDIUM
I work mostly with acrylic paint that has a high viscosity, pigment-rich color. With excellent archival permanence that will not color shift or fade over time. Each piece varies in medium, I frequently add gouache or ink to the acrylic. Other elements I use include charcoal, graphite, pastels, and spray paint.

 

CANVAS
Most pieces are painted on archival-quality deep edge medium-weight natural cotton duck canvas. The frame is professionally constructed and stretched around 1.5″ profile kiln-dried stretcher bars and held in place with a flexible spline. A portion are painted on Windsor & Newton Deep Edge Canvas. Triple coated with acid-free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented acrylic primer. This canvas’s balanced absorbency and tooth prevent the sinking of colors and improve paint adhesion. The frame has been specially constructed with kiln fired, beveled stretcher bars. The canvas has been stretched by hand for best tension with tailored corners and stapled on the backside.

 

BUYING NOTE
Working to make each painting an individual SKU.

Currently, the image gallery shows most of the available pieces. Potential delays in the visibility of newer works in the shop. Contact me if there is a piece you don’t see that you are interested in. Thank you.

ARTWORK SHIPPING DETAILS

All paintings on stretched canvas are shipped “Ready To Hang.” They are hooked and wired on the back with the appropriate hardware.

Prints and works on paper typically need to be framed. They do not come framed unless otherwise noted.

Additionally, you will receive an official Certificate of Authenticity to prove the work is genuine and is to be kept with the work for the entirety of its lifespan.

Most art shipments are handled by FedEx.

Carrier subject to change depending on rates, timeframes, and other circumstances. Our goal is to make sure you receive the art in the shortest period of time and by the safest means.

Rates are based on the total weight (artwork + all packaging) and timeframe, as well as, time of year (i.e. rates can increase around the holiday seasons).

Shipping insurance is provided, but additional or separate arrangements can be discussed.

Local free pick-up from the studio is always available, you must have your own transportation and assistance to help load and unload your vehicle. Contact to make arrangements.

Each piece of art ships individually directly from the studio, on occasion smaller artworks purchased on the same transaction may be packaged together.

Art ships flat in a sturdy, well-protected cardboard box to ensure their safe transport. Expect your artwork to arrive with plenty of package support. Staying eco-conscious about the usage of materials is always taken into consideration, so expect to see reused cardboard and other materials inside.

Art is first wrapped in acid-free archival tissue paper or Glassine paper. Next, it’s covered with plastic sheeting, poly wrap, etc. for protection against moisture and dust. Then bubble wrapped including cardboard corner protectors. Finally supported by either foam board or two-ply layers of cardboard to line the inside of the box.

Prints and other works on paper are shipped flat in chipboard mailers. Inside they are protected by cellophane wrapping and layers of foam or cardboard.

Oversize works have two options:

Crated
This means shipping the art stretched as-is, in a constructed wooden container. This method is usually more costly.

Rolled
This is a more cost-effective, but still safe, method. First, the art is carefully removed from its stretcher bars, then the canvas is delicately rolled with layers of tissue/Glassine paper and plastic sheeting to keep it from sticking to itself. Finally, its packaged in a large tube or triangle with additional filler to prevent jostling.

Note:
If there is a concern that the art could be damaged by rolling, do not worry, this is a very common shipping method. Acrylic is very pliable, as long as it doesn’t reach extreme temperatures below approximately 40F / 5C. Northbound winter deliveries might be forewarned to postpone.
