Eye-Opening Works for the Oregon Retina Center

Last summer I received a commissioned project for the Oregon Retina Center in Medford. They wanted three large abstract works to add color and energy to their halls. Years ago, I worked primarily in large format and I’d forgotten how much I love the process. I stocked up on large brushes (like you would use […]

Sold on the Spot

As just about everyone knows, it’s not easy making a living as an artist. It’s definitely a job that must be done for the love of it, and with a certain amount of trust in the universe to connect each painting with its buyer. Sometimes, this connection can take a while, but occasionally it happens […]

Head over Heels with Hills

There’s something playful about the rolling hills of Southern Oregon and Northern California. Like someone came along and scrunched up the landscape. It makes me want to lie in the grass and roll all the way down. But rocks and burrs – no thanks! I let my brush play on the canvas and spare myself […]

For the Love of the Rogue

Most people think of rivers as recreational sites but they’re so much more than that! As I roam the Rogue Valley, brush and palette knife in hand, I see all the ways that water brings life to this region. The images here are some of my recent favorites from these explorations.

Palette Knife Painting with Silvia Trujillo May 19, 2018

Last year’s palette knife class was such a huge success that I’m offering it again!

If you’ve never tried painting with a knife, it’s a whole new experience. Knife painting is very freeing – particularly for those of you who would like to loosen up a bit with your acrylic or oil paintings. You will achieve a richness of texture and color like no other. It’s a great way to explore your medium, expand your art language, and create something new, fresh, and different.

Saturday, May 19, 10:00 am–4:00 pm

Palette Knife Painting Acrylic/Oil Discover the technique and secrets of applying paint directly onto canvas using a palette knife. With thorough instruction by Silvia Trujillo, you will develop skills that will enhance your work in value, design, and color harmony by adding luscious texture and rich color that will make your piece breathtaking. MEMBERS $65, NON-MEMBERS

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new location of this wonderful store that specializes in natural bedding products, now’s a good time to do so!

I’m impressed with the artistically simulated bedroom environments that are displayed in the store, plus the way they’ve used my art to accent these restful sleep /space vignettes.

Here’s the flyer :
