Moving Ahead and Rebirth

I post the above photo especially for my good friends Manon Doyle and Douglas Hoover. There is nothing better than a fresh shipment of supplies.  I like the purity of new canvases, and having them on the walls helps me visualize and formulate goals. The week was spent finishing up the second canvas of the […]

Week 1, 2011 – Off To A Great Start!

If I could request something from the universe, I would ask it to make the rest of the  year exactly like the very first week of the year.  So many good things have happened in a very short period of time, and we are barely out of the gate. Most of the week was spent […]

Charity and Abundance

The first full week back in the studio since the holiday, and I’m slowly starting to get back into the swing of things.  I do admit that I did feel a slight void after unloading most of my inventory, but I think it will lead to new developments as time goes on. The big “Winter […]

Good Friends, Inspiration and Renewed Focus

Yesterday, Gabriella and I received our copy of Alemao! Caio Fernandez, the gifted Brazilian painter and writer has been a strong influence on me for some time now, and he has helped me along in my pursuits as an artist.It seems like it was just a couple months ago that he decided to write his first novel, […]

An Epiphany Away From Darkness

This was the view from the tent at last week’s market at SoWa.  I could sit and stare at this crisp blue sky and stark lines of the building for hours – and I did.  It’s simple things like this that make me happy. I love the Autumn, because everything starts to slow down, the […]

Tools and Implements

This is the current array of brushes that I have been using lately. Over the past 15 years, I have used all types and forms, from natural to synthetic. I’m not a brush snob, but I used to think that the most expensive meant the longest lasting and the best quality.  Contrary to all rhyme and reason, […]

The Cold and Structured Work of Brian Sylvester

Are you kidding me? I received a puzzling “critique” over the past week, and while I can understand the STRUCTURED part of it, for the life of me, I can’t figure out where the COLD came from.  True, I come from an industry in which uniformity was a must, but when was 16 hectares of flora […]

Expose Yourself To Art

Does anybody remember this old poster?  The parents of one of my best friends had it hanging in their house when I was young, and the image has stuck with me up to present day. Why do I bring this up?  After Gabriella and I did our first big market this past Sunday, I decided […]

Autumn Calls

A lot of good progress this week!  After looking at the chair for a week, I started with the layout and initial painting yesterday. The process has been different for me in many ways.  I had thought that because of the nature of the project, that I might approach the design differently.  Instead, I am […]
