4 New Works – Yet to be Titled

As I continue to explore relationships, old ones, new ones, and changing ones, I find it is a good idea to work in series; 2, 9 (as a final 1), and now these 4. The new colors, the larger distance in the creation process with a closeness in the imagery, aesthetic, and context. Blocking out the outside edges of reality and looking, seeing closely the inside is the idea. What is happening on the inside – the inner workings of the individual? Enjoy.

The Elements and Principles of Art… Art Trading Cards.

Working with the ideas of the Elements and Principles is ALWAYS a part, an emphasis of the work I do. These 9 cards are works that will be together for only a short period of time and will be separated and given / traded away. Here are the Elements and Principles and some short definitions of the terms.

A Few New Works.

It’s been a busy past month. Working through the end of summer, moving a daughter out to Washington D.C., preparing for a final art exhibition with the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network, getting ready for school (face to face and virtual). Here are my newest works. Everything is for sale (eventually) and I am always looking for commissions and representation. Thank you for visiting. – Frank

Saturday – July 25 – I got to do what few people in the state of Wisconsin get to do this year, and I was at the Wisconsin State Fair! Not a lot of people walking around. Driving around however, there were a ton! I worked with 4 other Plein Air Painters and we were part of the Mini Plein Air at the Fair. The sales of these paintings will benefit the Wisconsin State Fair Foundation. Please visit their sales site HERE (https://www.biddingforgood.com/auction/auctionhome.action?vhost=wsfpfoundation&aalias=wsfpfoundation-2) and BUY one of the 6 (at the time of this posting) paintings. Mine would be great! But any or all of them would be fine as well.

.@ArtWorks4Mke #CareSlips #ARTWorksforMilwaukee – Thank You!

Today I was able to participate in a ZOOM Creative session where I was not the one teaching. Thank you to the ART Works for Milwaukee for inviting and hosting the session. I think this will become an end of day Thursday and Friday activity for me and my students. Art CareSlips is the activity!

We began with some meditation and movement within our own spaces. I found myself not moving a lot in the beginning, but as it continued I stretched and bent and moved. We then went into a 5 minute reflection with marker on paper to relive the meditation – moving the marker around and where it went is where it went. No Erasing.

From there we chose colors (I used tempera paint) and filled in the spaces – no judgement – just color. I thought about balance and unity and then the leader mentioned that might be something to consider.

Next we wrote about the image, the experience, the opposite of the experience perhaps. Sometimes it is literal and sometimes symbolic – mine was abstract and symbolic.

Finally there was a ZOOM Dance (I chose to continue painting). A great 30 minutes of making and taking a break from isolation in the art studio. Thank you ART Works for Milwaukee.

Covid-19 and time outside of the classroom studio.

This morning, while so many students were virtually learning, I had a good opportunity to work with my young nephew Walker out in New York City through Google Hangouts. Walker came up with a figure drawing lesson and walked us through the process of drawing out a person. He started by having us imagine a person. I have a terrible imagination so I had to use the image of my brother Scott sitting in his IKEA chair as the starting point for my figure. Walker gave the instructions of using pencil, and of course I had to use charcoal pencil instead. After we drew out our person, we then added a background and then color. Thank you Walker for the experience and I look forward to next week’s. Here is Walker’s drawing, Scott’s Drawing, and my painting. Enjoy. Wash your hands stop touching your faces. Frank
