I am on the home stretch! Putting the final touches, varnishes, frames and care instructions on my 'Wallflower' series, and getting ready to install them in just over a week. #excited 📸 @brittanytaylorphoto
The "Wallflower” Series is infused with the spirit of the summer months of the Santa Ynez Valley, and my love for the “out west” way of life. With hues pulled from the valleys golden hills, and flowers inspired by the valley in full bloom, I have created a delicate tapestry that contrast perfectly against the fierce and bold animals that I love to paint. 📸 @brittanytaylorphoto .

One last painting to complete for my Wallflower Collection. Yippee!!!! The end is near, so excited to have everything that's been in my head out on the canvas. I've worked my butt of for this series and I am proud of every painting I have produced. Each one has been thoughtfully conceptualized, painstakingly painted with intricate detail, and I have spent COUNTLESS hours producing each work of art... needless to say each piece is a labor of LOVE. I hope you feel the love too ❤️

During last Friday’s talk, Max Gleason gave guests an inside look at his process, which often involves working from a model and then embellishing the piece with accents done in paint pen or tiny hand-punched origami paper dots. The artist shared that this technique involves two parts: first creating the figure in oil, which is a gestural, intuitive and relatively quick process, and then creating the dot patterns, which is meticulous and meditative work that can take up to a hundred hours for a single piece.

What a treat it was to have painter Max Gleason give a talk last Friday at the gallery! Gleason, who studied sculpture at RISD before transitioning into primarily a figurative painting practice, explained: “[This] has historically been my real love. I’ve been doing this sort of psychedelic energy spiritual figurative stuff for many years.” For more about the artist and the talk, check out our blog at Silo118.com
