Head North...to Crested Butte

"Head North"
24''x24''x1.5'' Acrylic on Gallery Canvas

It's that time. Time to check everything off the packing list, load up the trailer and hit the road to Crested Butte, CO Arts Festival this coming weekend. It's been HOT here and we are ready for the cooler and less humid weather. I thought a scene which conveyed the thoughts of leaving the hot country plains for the cool mountains was appropriate. Come by if you are in the area and look for booth #177.

Now, where's that checklist again?

"Emote" 24''x18'' Abstract Painting

©2010 Mark Yearwood
24''x18''x1.5'' Acrylic on Gallery Canvas
This new piece is sort of a return to a semi-geometric style I was creating last year. It has some of the structure, but with the loose palette knife elements in my current work and the texture, of course. There are also some subtle lines and such scatched in with a Pablo Caran d'Ache pencil.

Fifteen Days to Crested Butte...

I am painting and working to a frenzy to prepare for the "big show" in the mountains July 31- August 1. Besides making sure I have a large variety of work to display, there is the "list". The long laundry list of what to pack... or not pack for a weekend outdoor arts festival. I'm sure I will forget something. I always do.

If you are in the Colorado area, come on out and say hello. Better yet, plan a road (plane, train, bike) trip to the mountains anyway! It's beautiful this time of year. Over 175 quality artists, culinary events with the top Five Denver chefs, music and more.

30''x30''x1.5'' Gallery Canvas Acrylic
Available at MIRADA FINE ART
Back to the earth tones for this larger piece after painting cool ones for a while.
This one sort of has a desert canyon feel to me.
Antico: (It.) for Ancient

Small For The Wall - 6''x6'' Abstract Painting

©2010 Mark Yearwood
"Cooling Effect"
6''x6''x1.5'' Acrylic on gallery canvas

I painted two of these for the recent 6x6 on Route 66 Show in Tulsa. One was warm tones and was sold and this one is back and looking for a home. I think it should have went with the other one. It looks lonely sitting here all by itself with all of my larger works in the studio.
If you would like to adopt this little guy, let me know.

New Gallery- SO Art in Historic Guthrie, OK

Today, I made a trip to deliver paintings to a new gallery in the historic town of Guthrie, Oklahoma. Simply Oklahoma, LLC also known as SO Art, is in an Arts & Crafts period building which is close to 10,000 square feet in size. They feature only Oklahoma artists and there is A LOT of art! I'm happy to join the team and they really seem agressive at making a go of it and supporting the artists.

Thanks S.O. for asking me aboard!
