The Three Kings

     Posted on December 21st, 2015 by Megan

This year, I wanted to paint something new for a Christmas card, and this was the result.  Oil on canvas, 16 x 20, and already sold!  I will have prints available soon, and the Christmas card packs are popular at the farm stand.  This painting was spoken for before even before I varnished it.  I wanted to experiment with “mood” painting, and it turned out well!

Kilauea- Work in Progress

     Posted on March 5th, 2010 by Megan

I have 3 paintings that are in progress right now, and only time to photograph one of them this morning before I head to the bakery.

This is Kilauea, and I’m getting close. I still have to add features to the sky (read clouds) and now is the time to tweak what I need to tweak. As part of that, here is the painting in color, and another copy as a tonal picture:

My goal in looking at the black and white picture is to not be distracted by the color. Does the painting flow? Is there enough contrast to be interesting?

News Flash — New Gallery Representation

     Posted on February 28th, 2010 by Megan

Paintings and prints are now available at Waipio Valley Artworks.  Yesterday I presented originals and prints to the manager and she accepted over 50 prints and 6 originals!

Booster Shot

     Posted on February 12th, 2010 by Megan

I am just back from a 2-day painting workshop with Ed Kayton.   Ed has been painting for 28 years now, and for many of those years he worked in the advertising field.  He is mainly self-taught at this point although he studied art in college.  Apparently at that point in time, they didn’t teach what he wanted to learn which is realism.  So, he studied, and still studies the old masters to understand how they painted the incredible pieces of art that they did, and incorporates that knowledge into his own painting.  Now, he takes some of his time to pass on what he has learned about art, and about painting.  So, if you are in the neighborhood and are serious about painting, this is the opportunity of a career.

I am focused on becoming the best painter I can possibly be.  I came to painting later, having started just over 4 years ago and I have a lot of catching up to do.   I don’t kick myself about that any longer.  I began painting when I was ready to do so, apparently I had some lessons to learn first.  It’s called life.  I’m painting now, (oh boy am I painting!) and the perfect teacher presented himself at the right time.  What I can tell you is that I don’t take it for granted.  Not one little bit.  Painting is what I love, and I’m here to stay!

Third Time is the Charm

     Posted on January 3rd, 2010 by Megan

Here is my third hula figure.  I learned some great lessons from painting this one.

1.  Always use good reference photos.

2. Always use good reference photos.

3. Whatever you do, always use clear photographs to work from (i.e., reference photos.)

Back to School – Four Books That Will Improve Your Painting

     Posted on December 12th, 2009 by Megan

Art History, a Heavy Subject

Ed gave us a list of books to use as references in a handout that he gave to us.  I checked Amazon, and found all four of them used.  With shipping, the cost is still unbelievably low, right around $30!

I was excited to get three out of four of them in hardcover (I really love books) but then I tried picking them up.  The photo opposite is the result.  Makes me think I’m back in college!  The four of them together weigh 13 pounds!

Finally, I am studying art history in a way that makes sense to me.  Find what I like, what is similar to what I want to create in style, degree of realism, or whatever, and study how it was painted.  Here is one of my favorite paintings, Scene from Thanatopsis by Asher Brown Durand (1796 – 1886).

Scene from Thanatopsis 39.5 x 61 Inches

Durand was an American romantic landscape painter, and a member of the Hudson River School.  His paintings evoke the emotions of mystery, wildness and grandeur that were a staple of the breathtaking landscapes in the 1800s which were almost completely devoid of people, something rarely seen today.  It is a fabulous painting, and my goal is to paint like this!

This painting is described in “What is Art, an Introduction to Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture” by John Canaday.

I grew up on fantasy artwork; primarily the works of the brothers Hildebrandt and Boris Vallejo.  Hildebrandts’ works exhibit many similarities with painters from the romantic period.
Here’s an example, Old Man Willow by Greg and Tim Hildebrandt:

Many more of their paintings can be viewed here.

The other three books shown above are:

Drawing Lessons From the Great Masters by Robert Beverly Hale

A Treasury of Impressionism by Nathaniel Harris

Techniques of the World’s Great Painters edited by Waldemar Januszczak

I’ll talk about them in a different post.  It’s time for me to get painting!


I’m a People Person

     Posted on November 15th, 2009 by Megan

I never realized it until now.  I love painting people.  I did a self-portrait a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the experience.  You look at your self critically: emotionally, physically, and finally, as a subject for a painting without the baggage.  Painting myself, I finally understood why some artists paint themselves over and over again.  Rembrandt painted between 50 and 60 self-portraits    through out his life.

It wasn’t until I did my hula dancer last month that I remembered how much I enjoy painting people, so, I decided to do a series of hula dancers.  I figure that once I finish 6 of these paintings, I’ll be able to paint anything!

Here’s number 2 in the series:

A Slight Change in Direction

     Posted on October 31st, 2009 by Megan

I began painting with Oils.  I had an opportunity to take a class with Ed Kayton.  I planned to use Golden’s Open Acrylics with the class, and then water-based oils (which smelled horrible) and Ed sat me down with his paints and said, “do it!”  What a revolution.

Oils are fantastic!  Since that class, I haven’t touched my acrylics!  Here’s the result of those two days I spent in a workshop with him.

Featured Artist for September
