Early December Studio Notes

Here are a few more in the series of cruciform studies I'm doing.  Once artist whose work I am using for inspiration (and there are many!) is Charlotte Foust.  As you can see from this Pinterest Page, Foust's work falls into a few different categories:  the energetic, expressive, painterly mark-making pieces; the grids; and the collages which often include bird imagery.  I saw some of her work at Hunter-Kirkland Gallery in Santa Fe last summer.

This series is all on 10"x10" paper, which will be mounted to wood panel:


This piece and the next I started on a dark ground.



Thanks for visiting.

    1. THANKS, Everyone. There are more unfinished, seemingly unresolvable ones in the works, and more starts. We'll just see how it goes. Fun exercise.

  10. Hello Jane, Towards the right of the top one there is a different type of lettering. Did you print that from somewhere or did you do the lettering yourself? I absolutely love it but cannot find it anywhere. Thank you. You are such an inspiration to me and I love all of your work!
