Oil Painting: Sunset, Duck Lake Beach

Posted on

LkMiSunsetDAnderson

November already! We had our first snowfall today. This sunset painting is inspired by a summer trip to Michigan back in July. I’ve kept busy painting indoors and out, and teaching at Insight Fine Art Studio, among other things. I post more frequently on Instagram as debrhapainting, but I’ll be bringing this page back up to date over the next few days.

I’m looking forward to showing work with  fine jeweler Dora Winchester on November 27 in Glencoe’s Guild Hall. More details coming soon.

I’ll also be updating my etsy shop with quite a few new pieces including a series of works on paper that I’m having so much fun with… soon, very soon!

Enjoy the weekend, friends.

Beautiful summer – I love this time of year. Here’s a zinnia from the garden. I’m pretty sure it’s done, I might glaze over the leaves today. I’m getting ready this painting and many others ready for the Glenview Art League Summer Art Fair this Saturday and Sunday. I hope to see you there.

First day of Schaumburg’s Prairie Plein Air Competition, and the weather is fine :). I’m working indoors today, but I did make it out to have my panels stamped in preparation for outdoor painting next week. These events are so fun – I get to meet artists in person that I only know online, like Maggie Capettini last year and Kate Burlette today! We get to make artwork between now and May 11, and the reception is at the Prairie Center for the Arts on May 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. I’m looking forward to seeing artists there, and in action over the next two weeks.

Linoprint: Break

Break
“Break” – linoleum print, 11 by 14 inches, gold ink on paper, by Deb Anderson

Recent linoleum prints have gone in a different direction from my oil paintings. This one explores a fragile, unsettled feeling I have sometimes. Being hollowed out, losing stability, maybe molting, maybe coming undone. The sharp hands keep coming up – sharp, accurate, sinister, precise. These images come from a lot of sketching and doodling, seeing if something looks right and interesting, if it rings an inner bell. Carving the blocks and making the prints, hanging them all over the art room is so satisfying.

Quite a few of my oil paintings are at the Glenview Library until May 14.

Upcoming event: I’ll be in a exhibition at the Danon Gallery in Evanston that opens on May 17 (6 to 9 p.m.), with Erdmut Lerner.

Finished! This was my demo painting for the workshop at the library last week. I just added it to the exhibit today to replace a painting that sold. Thanks to everyone who attended the artist talk and workshop. And thanks to the staff at the library for putting it all together and hosting artwork in their beautiful display area. I hope to teach more workshops in the future. Send me an email if you’d like to be notified of future events.

I recently started teaching classes at the Insight Fine Art Studio in Skokie. I’m having a great time with it! The studio is lovely, filled with creative vibes. Mary, the owner, is wonderful. Check it out.

Lately when I’m painting I think about prismatic, colored light. I don’t see rainbows very often, but daily I see light bending and bouncing off every surface. I see how sunlight cools at the zenith of the sky and warms at the horizon.

My paintings, including the two above, are hanging in the beautiful display space at the Glenview Public Library until May 15. Join me at the library for my artist talk on April 4 at 6:15, followed by a painting workshop from 7 to 8:30. Register for the workshop here at the library website.
