My upcoming workshop will explore the use of Acrylics in a aqua media format. From my famous "Wind Spirit" series to exploring your own creativity and finding your own inner path to self expression. This three day event will allow the traditional watercolorist to explore their own exciting creative process while easing into the aqua media possiblities offered by the acrylic medium. See you in Indy!
Today I delivered eleven new pieces to Artsource at North Hills in Raleigh, NC. The pieces range from the smallest being 18" x 24" to the largest at 36" x 60". Many of the abstract acrylic canvases are a continuation of my "Raleigh" series of work that is titled after the city the work was completed , using the same method as that of the famous abstractions Richard Diebenkorn of the 1950 and 60's. It's funny to note that my birthday is sandwiched between two great Abstract Expressionist. Richard Diebenkorn was born on April 22nd while Willem de Kooning born on April 24th, so with my birthday on the 23rd of April, I was born on the "cusp of Diebenkorn and de Kooning".
Hmmm, Diebenkorn, DiGiulio and de Kooning. I like the way that sounds.
