I’ve been a member of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA—a slightly weird acronym) for a few months and it’s been interesting to see the work of the other members, which is mostly abstract. For some reason, their work has inspired me to get some previous work out from under wraps and wonder about it. A number of years ago, I did a series of abstract paintings with the intention of creating deep, atmospheric visual experiences through the use of simple forms, acrylic glazes and gels and lots of texture. Here is a LINK to thumbnails of the images. If you’re reading this, let me know what you think.
Today we had a local artist and LA ex-pat, David Limrite come in and do a critique of the groups paintings. He had a few things to say that I found pretty interesting and also some things that I disagreed with. But, it was great meeting him and talking with him and, coincidentally, he grew up in Salinas and we know a number of the same people.
