Beyond Chroma - Santa Fe show

Here are a series of photographs I took before the opening of my 2 man show in Santa Fe. This has been my fifth show at Ventana Fine Art, hanging with the artist Frank Balaam. Frank paints wonderfully thick impasto paintings of tree foliage with a stunning collideascope of color. I think because of our use of colors, the work hang beautifully together. Each of us with a very different approach and goal, but both with much commonality too.

Ventana is a wonderful gallery with professional staff who are honest, warm and friendly. It's a joy to always visit the town and work together on the show.

There's too many photos to credit all appropriately, but here just a little of the show, focussing mostly on my work. Sorry I'm not able to show it all.

While in Santa Fe, Frank and I paint in front of the gallery, we both enjoy chatting while we work and welcome interested passers by.

Both these photos show this painting mid way through. Much of the color and paint you can see is just the underpainting stages.
