Flowers On the Table

28 by 48
Mixed media on paper

I enjoy studying the work of Helen Frankenthaler an American, 1928–2011. She was an abstract expressionism painter.

Her canvases, often suggested elements of landscapes or figuration in the shaping of their forms. Frankenthaler once said, “My pictures are full of climates, abstract climates. They're not nature per se, but a feeling.”
I like this sentiment, too. In my painting, Flowers on a Table, I wanted to paint the colours not the objects. That might be a Colours-cape.

Exploring the language of line, colour, shape and form and how this language can be interpreted to convey emotion, person or place is a challenging task, but it yields fantastic results. If you have a chance to visit the gallery, or to take a look online, I'm sure you'll enjoy this wide array of wonderful abstract art.

10 Jan 2021 - 21 Mar 2021 2020 TD Thor Wealth Management Juried Exhibition: “Quest for the Environment” Cheryl Bailey Category: Show/Exhibit Price: Free Venue: Online TBA
Does “Paved paradise, put up a parking lot” ring a bell for you?
Joni Mitchell’s lyric will be remembered as a call to attention during the second wave of the ongoing environmental movement. I painted “Pave Paradise” 30”x40” in anticipation of my solo exhibition intended to educate and encourage the public to plant native plants.
“Pave Paradise“ has now been juried into the Anthropocene-themed exhibition at QuestArt. Interesting to note is that the Edward Burtynsky Anthropocene exhibition at the AGO gave me the inspiration to mount the multimedia exhibition which of course was consequently cancelled for Covid-19.

“2020 TD Thor Wealth Management Juried Exhibition: Quest for the Environment” exhibition was open to artists across Canada to bring quality artwork to the central Ontario area.

7 Mar 2021 - 21 Mar 2021 SIGHT & INSIGHT ZOOM CLASS: THE NATURAL WAY OF SEEING David P. Curtis Category: Workshop/Class Price: 150.00 Venue: Join our Virtual Zoom Classroom from the comfort of your own home.
We’ve all heard a good painting has “variety in unity.” But how do we achieve this? And what exactly does it mean? We will explore this feature of painting in depth in this class. This is about setting up to paint outdoors and not using guides, viewfinders, and other structural means to capture your scene. The principles of gestalt, the Cozens’ blot method, and other nonlinear ways are introduced to help you “feel” your way to a unified and whole painting.
Join me, David Curtis, and my friend and fellow painter, Lorwen 'Connie' Nagle, Ph.D., as we explore The Natural Way of Seeing. Classes are held at 5 pm on Sundays and Thursdays, in this case, March 7, 11, 14, 18, and 21, 2021.

You will need the Zoom application to participate. Download for free at https://zoom.us. Tuition for five sessions is $150.00 comprising two PowerPoint modules and three Critique Sessions! To sign up, email lorwenpaintings@gmail.com or davidpcurtis@comcast.net to register. Pay through Paypal or send your tuition check, payable to David P. Curtis, to 30 Riverview Road, Gloucester, MA 01930-1614. Any questions, please contact me or Connie.

Alexander Cozens’s book on landscape painting gives us a new/old method with which to work. He originally developed the idea as a teaching aid, to liberate the imagination of the student who, he felt, spent too much time copying. Giovanni Boldini was known for the visual movement he worked into his paintings. We will also look at the Boston School technique of ‘pulling it out of the fog,’ which helps develop the painting on a more even basis of establishing edges in relation to the whole.
Join me, David Curtis, and my friend and fellow painter, Lorwen 'Connie' Nagle, Ph.D., as we explore bringing our work 'Out of the Mist.' Classes are held at 5 pm on Sundays and Thursdays, in this case, April 11, 15, 18, 22, and 25, 2021

You will need the Zoom application to participate. Download for free at https://zoom.us. Tuition for five sessions is $150.00 comprising two PowerPoint modules and three Critique Sessions!

Color, more than anything else in painting, is fraught with complexities. The exact nature of color and light is still a mystery. Knowledge of colors is a starting point.

Additionally, color in relation to Gestalt principles of design will be discussed. Join me, David Curtis, and my friend and fellow painter, Lorwen 'Connie' Nagle, Ph.D., as we explore the fascinating world of color. This course includes Plein air on-site painting homework!
