Joey Bates

I am loving the portrait work by Joey Bates.  Fantastic.

Tim Lowly

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Tim Lowly has a knack for capturing moments in his paintings that are both serene and powerful.  Excellent work.


Jenny Salomon

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

There isn’t a great deal of work on her site, but it’s quality over quantity, and Jenny Salomon’s layered and textured portraits are well worth a visit.


Travis Louie

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Travis Louie seems to have come across a series of daguerreotypes taken of some fairly interesting and diverse folks.

In truth, these creatures come entirely from his imagination, and each comes with a mini-bio as well.  Great stuff!

Carla Klein

Carla Klein creates fantastically wide open spaces that near abstraction, and are right up my alley.  Great work!

Dan Ryan

Friday, June 13th, 2008

I have been itching to head up north for a while now, and Dan Ryan’s paintings are definitely putting me in the mood to spend some time in northern Ontario.  If you can’t get out of the city this weekend, take some consolation from that fact that you can go here.

Stephen Nguyen

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

I love the subtlety of Stephen Nguyen’s monochromatic nightscapes.  With very little detail he creates streets and cities, veiled by fog and mystery.  Very cool.

Nicole Vogelzang

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

I am having a very hard time putting into words how much I enjoy Nicole Vogelzang’s paintings.  Well, I guess the hard part is stringing the words together coherently, so instead I’ll just say this:  toys, childhood, halloween, gummy bears, so very very good.

It is inadequate, but it will have to do.


Matt Brackett

There are many wonderful things to see over at Matt Brackett’s site.  And who doesn’t like wonderful things?

Rosie Schinners

Monday, June 9th, 2008

Rosie Schinners has an interest in film as well as painting.  In fact, it appears all of her paintings are based on film stills, but the coolest part is how she chose the stills for her “Heart Rate” series.  She strapped herself to a heart rate monitor, watched “heart pounding movies” and pin-pointed the moments where her heart rate jumped the highest in order to find her subject matter.

Even if the paintings weren’t great (which they are) this is a great series on concept alone.
