Untitled (Encounter in a Foyer)

Not too many new postings here recently, eh? I've been busy with several projects, one of which is working on new paintings for a show at the Swan Coach House Gallery, in Atlanta. Manipulating the Commonplace: Nine Southern Artists Reinterpret Realism opens August 9 and runs through September 22.


Here are a few views of one of the new paintings. Untitled (Encounter in a Foyer), 2007, egg tempera, gold leaf, and silverpoint over casein on panel, 16 x 20 inches.

Dennis, as always very interesting painting. I would love to see these up close to get a sense of the scale. Thanks for the close-up views.

Alex,
Thanks again for visiting. This painting's still pretty small: 16 x 20. Sorry about the crappy photo quality, by the way, even on the details. I shot them in poor light and had to adjust pretty heavily in Photoshop, before framing and sending away to the exhibition. When it returns I'll try to get better photos and replace on the page.
Better yet, come on over to Atlanta this Thursday and you can see them at the reception!
Best wishes, D.
