primal landscapes


Here's a slide show preview of the upcoming show (more details later). The largest paintings in the series are 4' x 4' and the smallest are 16" x 16". They are painted in acrylic on 1.5" gallery-wrapped canvas with the image extending around all sides, and have been sealed with an isolation coat of acrylic medium followed by Golden UVLS (gloss) varnish. Individual details on this page.

Gosh, I hope you are feeling deservedly chuffed with yourself. These are truly beautiful. Re: your comment about acrylics and oils, I have to tell you, I couldn't believe it when I first realized you were painting in acrylic! Your blending and subtle details are so oil-like. I commend you for sticking with it through what I am sure at first must have been some pretty frustrating experimentation. I have never tried oil painting, but know it has a rather forgiving slow dry when doing blending and such. You are an acrylic genius!

These great comments are definitely helping with pre-show jitters. Thanks so much for the much-needed support!

andrea, these are just fabulous. I love the colours, compositions and the imagery. Love the shades of red in "sum". They are so rich looking and so I imagine they are glorious in real life.

Andrea, this is such an impressive body of work. Congratulations on your one woman show. I hope it leads to more and more recognition. But I hope you'll still want to know us when you're rich and famous artist. Your work is so unique and stunning. I love the glow that every one of your paintings has. They all look like they're lit from within in those gorgeous jewel-like, rich colors.

hey girl ...

your work just floors me ...

it reaches into my inner landscape to those big places without words.
i wish i could be there to experience it all at once.

hope the show goes well. if the jitters do come, just hum the "the plumber he says/never flush a tampoon" part of "Flakes" by FZ.

Your show will be fabulous. Even the little tiny images at the bottom of your slide show are like little jewels. How I wish I could see them in person. Best wishes.

You guys are too kind but just what I need to calm my panic a bit. I wish I could use your testimonials to get people in the gallery but unfortunately it's a small gallery, and new, in an unusual location. I'm just looking forward to seeing it all hanging as a series.

Gorgeous - a real visual feast. Enjoy the show!

Uber-Cool! I have been sitting here staring at them. There is so much see in each piece. It seems to encompass cultural and natural icons that span from the bottom to the top of the Americas.

Just out of curiosity, how many Gallery visitors will walk up and say
"How's it hangin?"
