Solar Wheel

Just a quick sketch playing with colors and trying for “looseness”. Overall I like it but I’m always nervous about intense colors. I’m never sure how they will be seen by others. But then I remind myself of all the hideous color schemes I’ve seen in art museums.

About three inches in diameter on Winsor and Newton Professional paper. Colors are Daniel Smith Quinicridone Violet, New Gamboge Yellow, Pyrrole Orange, and Pyrrole Red.

New Cattail Painting/Design

I’m going to call this done. This is an old design that I wanted to redo in Daniel Smith watercolors and on Winsor and Newton professional paper.

Is There a Culture War Against Populism?

Is There a Culture War Against Populism?

Is it a positive wave or a troubling pattern? In this age of anxiety over joblessness and immigration, populist leaders in Hungary, Poland, Turkey, Sweden and the Philippines are tapping in. Is populism, as the 1960’s American historian Richard Hofstadter called it, “a paranoid style of politics”? Or is it what others describe as “the essence of democratic politics”?

Breath Arising

“Breath Arising” work in progress. Marker, pastel pencil, colored pencil. About five by seven inches. I’m thinking the background on the lower left still needs work.
