    Dear Art Entrepreneur,

    Have you received a redesign or SEO (Search Engine Optimization) email from a web designer asking if you want your website redesigned or optomized for google search? Maybe you want a few new cool features for your site, or an app? I receive two - three a week, and I would suggest putting these in your spam folder and promptly ignore them.

    Here is an example email verbatim:

    Creativity ebbs and flows. Life brings with it times of plenty regarding creativity and can also be peppered with dry spells.  I don't always want to create something and it's a constant challenge finding ways to be creative. The major take away from the following list: Persevere, try to surround yourself with creative individuals and make it a central part of your daily routine.

    Procession has multiple meanings. The hands and the composition evoke movement while at the same time the figure imbues an air of quiet acceptance. The structure of the figure is in flux. She is not quite there. She is lost in the procession of hands and their rhythmic spiral.

  • This wonderful little self portrait drawing is a study I did for the painting "Wanting to Speak". You can find it here.  This self portrait drawing is smaller than most of my work, however it holds up well when viewed at a distance. This is due to the high contrast values and the larger than life scale of the face within the composition.  The figure in this drawing appears to be looking through a window, but instead of leading with the eyes, he is perhaps ready to say something.

  • This is a simple and almost minimalistic study of Daisies. I seldom draw or paint anything other than figurative artwork. But every once in a while I will paint or draw a landscape, or items within it. On this day I drew daisies! This drawing will last longer than the real flowers. So if you ask me, it's a deal!

  • This is a still life drawing of shoes I have collected over the years. When I drew this piece I saw a sweetness in the subject matter. However I also get a feeling of abandonment, or a sense of loss or neglect. Baby shoes sometimes appear in other works of mine over the years. They can carry a psychological weight that I find appealing. Such as in one of my drawings called: "Relic".

  • This is an oil painting study of hair. The way her hair is draped over her mouth contains a psychological conflict I enjoyed exploring with this piece. This piece does not contain an overt meaning, the viewer can decide for themselves the true meaning of Hair #2. However, an oil painting study like this one offers me an opportunity to experiment with some of the basic elements of art in a smaller format. The main reason I painted this piece was to study the light and structure of the skin along with the volume and movement of hair. I am really happy with the final results.

  • This is an oil painting study for a possible series of of larger oil paintings. The figure is being effected in some way. The position of her hair over/in her mouth is a conflict I enjoyed exploring with this piece. I am not sure what this piece means. But I don't care, the viewer can decide for themselves the true meaning of Hair #2. Studies offer me an opportunity to experiment with some of the basic elements of art and the main reason I painted this piece was to study the light on the form and the structure of the color and paint. I am happy with the final results.

  • An oil painting study for a possible series of of larger oil paintings. I like the contemplative mood of the piece and the immediacy and movement of the paint. Unlike my more finished works, studies offer me an opportunity to experiment with some of the basic elements of art. In this case I was experimenting with brush work and the effects of keeping the movement of the paint active. I like the static volumetic figure contrasted with the linear movement of the hair.

    Below is a quick no nonesense varnishing demonstration by Scott Hutchison. Watch as he varnishes his painting called "Plastic".

    Basic Tips:
    1. I suggest waiting 6 months to a year before varnishing an oil painting. That way you are certain the thicker oil layers are dry.
  • This 8" x 8" self portrait color study is on black cotton rag paper. It is a whimsical painting. Its purpose was to study the extreme moevements of my face in preparation for an animation. An animation based on this pose was never created, however I came away with an interesting couple pieces to put on display. This piece is signed on the back. Face #1 is its companion piece.

  • This painting is inspired by my oil painted animations. These animations are separate images played in a sequence that create a movie.  With my latest work, the images are superimposed and collaged digitally. The sequence is effectively flattened and layered in one composition. I want the viewer to see multiple scenes or poses in one composition.

  • This 12" x 12" oil painting on linen sits inside a solid and attractive custom made maple frame by Merto Frames. The individual poses used in this piece were chosen to evoke a thoughtful and contemplative scene. All the faces in the painting appear to be turning away from each other.  Almost "Slipping Away".

  • This 12" x 12" contemporary portrait painting is painted on linen and sits inside a solid and attractive custom made maple frame by Merto Frames.  I used three separate poses to create the painting you see here. I am more interested in creating a balance between the natural realism of the warmer face with the synthetic and unnatural colors of the colder blue transparent twin.

    20" x 20"
    Oil on Panel
    Unframed

     

    Scott Hutchison's Quiet Depth In A Fading Light is a colorful portrait painted on wood panel. The painting consists of multiple layers of thinly applied glazes over more opaque applications of paint. This piece focuses on the lighting of the subject and the delicately rendered fingers surrounding the face. The hands draw the viewer into the middle of the piece and back out again. This suggestive and rhythmic movement is what I hoped to capture.
