the series continues…


Two more images in the series of _ _ _ ?100??? The gold tones was fun to do and it radiates with the warmth of the colors. When I did the red and yellow, I felt like I was maybe looking thru some sort of filter…almost a negative in a sense. The monochromatic golds I liked the best. I am thinking of what I will do next and for the Willow show where I will hang a collection of these. And how many… I am thinking 12…in 5×7 inch frames and images of 3×5.
A new blog that may show some of the works….pastelnews.com. It is a GREAT site with a ton of reference and postings of wonderful art biased toward the pastel painting folks! Lots of links, etc. Check it out.
I was looking at Idaho Beauty’s blog and reading some I hadn’t read before…seeing some postcards made of fabric…wonderful work – art. I am the proud owner of one and it sits on my desk at work to be complimented on by visitors. Fabric art is quite wonderful. Allied Arts in TriCities had a quilt show in January that looked stunning. I am afraid to step into those quilting stores…I sense it could be a whole new addition in the art world!!
So for now I will concentrate on my landscape series and begin working on some larger pieces for the Willow show in April/May and others beyond.
happy painting….

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith

One response to “the series continues…

  • The Idaho Beauty

    I blush…but am happy the little postcard is being enjoyed by many. I should get busy and make more. You are right about getting too close to us quilters and our materials – we jokingly warn of quilt pox!These are wonderful colors – the red one does give that feeling of a photo with filter. Such a contrast to the drab view outside my window.
