A Place Beyond, A two person show at Wally Workman Gallery and Aether Magazine!

Shane and I are having a two person show at Wally Workman Gallery this July called A Place Beyond. We have been working, working, working! It is all starting to come together.
Recently, Aether Magazine featured some of our work and a little about us in an article. Here is the link. 

Here is what Shane had to say about his body of work for A Place Beyond.

"I wanted to create a series of works that felt ethereal, soft and slightly surreal. I knew I wanted to use water to help me achieve a dreamlike effect. Serendipitously, our friend happened to have a huge piece of glass that she was no longer interested in. She dropped it off and I spent the next couple of weeks building a huge tank in our studio. It holds 900 gallons! 
I painted the inside of the tank white so that what we saw in the end was the model being affected by the water but the water was taken out of its normal context. By flipping the composition the water appears unaffected by gravity and the model enters into another world or state of consciousness. By mirroring the portraits I created a sense of dialogue between the model and herself."

The tank.
Here are some of the pieces he created.

The characters that I paint for A Place Beyond will have magic powers or a special connection to say, an animal or a place. They have the ability to give life or are the protectors of things such as moons or little creatures. These characters have been creating/protecting these things since the beginning of time. Here is a preview of my work for the show!

I am excited to announce that Shane and I will be having a two person show with
Wally Workman Gallery in the Summer of 2014!
That is not too far away so we need to stop all of this driving around and get to work!

Shane and I have returned from a HUGE road trip. We started our trip by heading to Austin, TX to deliver works to Wally Workman Gallery.  We just love Wally and Rachel! The gallery is beautiful.
 If you don't live in Austin you can take a virtual tour.

After a wonderful time in Austin we traveled to Charleston to deliver our paintings for North vs. South, a show at Robert Lange Studio's. Here are the paintings Shane and I made for the show.

We had a fabulous time during the opening reception! 

After the show we drove on to visit family in Ohio and Indianapolis. 
While in Indianapolis we visited the Indianapolis Museum of art. What a WONDERFUL museum. We saw so many great works! I have included some of our favorites. 


On our way home we stopped for a visit with our friends in St. Louis.

Now that we are home Shane is working on a tank for a new series he is going to start soon.
We had a blast on our trip but are happy to be back in the studio!

Our show in July will be here sooner than we can imagine!

I am very pleased with the way this painting turned out! I kept finding pieces that would be perfect for "Perchta," and when we put it all together it really worked!

Road Trip, Projects and Finished Work!

Shane and I just returned from a long trip. We started our trip in Sedona. 
The natural beauty of Arizona is breathtaking. 

Next, we visited Shane's grandparents in LA. It was my first trip to the Getty. Every time we drive from LA to SF, I always see that wonderful building and want to stop, but there is always a time crunch. We finally got to go! 

We saw very beautiful pieces of art. These are two of our favorites.

This painting is titled, "A Young Girl Defending Herself Against Eros." It was painted by Adolphe William Bouguereau in 1880. He was such a fantastic painter. Really, I think he is still the best figurative painter.

This piece I had never seen. It is titled, "Mischief and Repose." The painter is John William Godward.
 It was painted in 1895. The handling of the fabric and the figures are just gorgeous!

Then, San Francisco! We went to our favorite fabric store, Britex. I found a Victorian button, and Shane bought fabric to make a ruff. We have both been obsessed with ruffs! You will probably be seeing them a lot in both of our work!

We also went to see the amazing Redwoods in La Honda and Memorial Park.

After the San Francisco Bay Area we traveled to Ouray, Colorado. Ouray is gorgeous, and I LOVE snow! It was the perfect combination to inspire us both to paint! Really, after three weeks of travel it didn't take much to make us sit down and work. 

We were getting pretty restless.

Here is a progress shot of Shane's Painting.

And the finished painting!
"The Attraction of Light"

This painting will be on display at the Realism show at JRB Art at the Elms, Oklahoma City, OK February 3, 2012.

We are back home now. During our crazy-fun road trip, we sat in the car for HOURS and talked a lot about new work we want to create. 
So, here we go! 

 Shane started making his second ruff. 

And I am creating a swan crown for a commission that I am super excited to start! More to come soon. But for now, excuse me,  I have more feathers to glue.
