    Default Artists you know, artists you like

    Original Art --

    Do you personally know any artists whose work you'd like to share? Or maybe you've just got some favorites, whose original work you've admired.

    I'll start with a recently completed work by an old friend - Kitty Paino. It's a 12 X 15 oil & cold wax called 'Stranded'. Inspired by CV19. I was touched that she said she was thinking of me (just because I'm her only boatbuilder friend, I reckon). I've always loved her work, ever since I met her back in 1969. Can't afford her originals, but she did grace me with one of her prints. It's called 'Chinook' and shows a closeup of a tote full of salmon. It now hangs in our kitchen.

    Chris Rigby. https://chris-rigby.co.uk/ He is a close friend of mine, and a seriously good painter. He could use some sales. I have a small one from 20 years ago, and hope to buy more when I return to the UK, whenever that might be.

    Here's another of hers I really like. 'Mussels for Dinner'. Sadly, it doesn't reproduce well, but in person, it looks edible --

    Also, a very good friend, Byron Bratt, one of very few mezzotints masters in the world.

    I didn't really think the setting looked familiar.

    I see his Needle Tower is at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. Probably what I saw.

    Since my dad was a well respected watercolor painter and I was a sculpture major, I've known quite a few artists. Unfortunately, most of them are gone now, but it was quite a ride while it lasted.
    Does it count if I wasn't quite born yet? That's my mom on the far right about four months before I was born. Dali asked her if my dad painted her. She said "No, he paints rocks."

    These are from a series of 44 small watercolors that my dad painted using casein paint on rice paper. They're each only about 5" wide.

    And these guys were the instructors I had in college who taught me how to work with epoxy and polyester resins. I worked on weekends with Kotoske wet-sanding and polishing those solid polyester pours, some weighing as much as 100 lbs. and cast in 1/2" thick layers, tinted in transparent colors. They would do some really cool lens things as you move around them. We also cut out big disk bases to set them on from 3/4" thick Plexiglas. We cut them out with 45 degree beveled edges using a sabre saw and cutting through a bead of motor oil. Then the edges were hand-sanded - 60 grit, 80, grit, 150 grit, 220 wet, 320, 400, 600 and finally buffed with a power buffer. Kotoske finally decided that sculpture was too much work and became a painter.
