"Red Chair" oil on linen, 12 x16

Long time no see, guys.. And all because of a heavy plein air painting traveling and a workshop I took with Zhaoming Wu. I highly, highly recommend this workshop to professionals and experienced artists. I learned a lot. And I'm going to adapt and incorporate some of Zhaoming ideas and philosophies to my teaching. For me, it's all about paint application, brush strokes  calligraphy and a very strong attention to a color temperature shifts
. To watch him demoing  was a revelation and  highest joy. Here are my attempts to paint in a style of  Zhaoming Wu. I think I'm completely sold! I will integrate his approach into my own creative  expression.
I also met incredible, warm and open hearted group of people from all over this country! And THIS is a biggest blessing of my art adventure. I LOVE every second of it!  Enjoy and thank you for being part of this journey !!

  1. Red Chair is amazing! If I was you I would save it back for a big show or two. That has all of the makings of an award winner. All three are nice, but Red Chair hits on every level. My favorite Lane painting EVER!

  2. yep I agree, Red Chair is gorgeous...
