Behind the Scenes 04 | Nov

For the upcoming duet December show at RLS, Double Vision, June Stratton and I decided to create a body of work based on the same models. Together we had 6 photo shoots over 4 days in Savannah and Charleston and we had the pleasure of working with some amazingly talented artist models, dancers and aerialists. (And staying at the lovely RLS apartment and hanging out with our family artist friends while we were in town!) It was an absolute joy to collaborate with June and our models, and it's been incredibly inspiring to see our two different approaches for this new body of work.

More to come!

I’m Always Painting… 22 | Oct

...but not always painting the same painting. This is one that I started at the beginning of 2019, but have only worked on it in an on again, off again fashion. 


Working this way, I get to take a break from the other thing I have going, or have something to continue on with while the other painting I’m studying dries.


You are scrolling back in time to see its earlier layers; below is the first layer of opaque paint completed.



The finished product should be up in a week or two once the this one dries enough for a glaze and a varnish.




It all starts with a big mess 22 | Oct

Doing photoshoot after photoshoot. I’m gathering as many reference photos as i can - then I will dwindle them down to the best of the best. I take images and combine them with other scenery to make the final painting.

My son was a trooper, replicating cold, wet, snowy ideas for the first time. It was a lot of fun and I have some incredible images even though it was just a test shoot.


My friend Jordan (who has been in 5 paintings of mine) came over and we did an idea together. I’ve been wanting to continue to do multi-figure paintings. Thanks to my amazing husband for hearing my vision and getting the shots of us. I can’t wait to show the painting that came out of this shoot.




The bottom photo is my set-up for my first reclining nude. This took me weeks to plan and get it all to come together. The end result is so exciting to me… worth all the effort. Everyone that sees it loves it.

When My Wonderful Wife… 02 | Oct

...tells me there is a place I need to see, it always puts a smile on my face for the results are usually future paintings. This Sunday proved no different, with a little help from the trusty ladder and even trustier Subaru!


When I just want a quick extra few feet in height, I simply climb up the window and onto the roof of my car.


The result is a semi-birds eye view of the landscape, just enough to enable you to see the winding shapes made by the creek.



The image above is simply taken standing; the focus is the shoot of light streaming through the landscape. While below the opposite approach is taken, as I was sitting in the grass to get the spartina wisps to create a foreground.



Three different approaches to catch three different places! -jb.
