elysianstudios New work is finally underway in my studio! Processing compositions from my recent trip to Santa Fe in preparation for paintings to get underway in the near future. I loved this gorgeous tree set against adobe architecture in the courtyard of the Palace of the Governors. #santafe #santafenm #landofenchantment #fineart #drawing 3h

elysianstudios Had the chance to hear the Air Force Academy Falconaires #jazz #bigband play tonight! They played everything from "Take the A-Train" to "Uptown Funk"- and we had a great time swinging! 4d
  •   gingerbreadsnowflakes And I am completely jealous!!!!! Love big band. When I was a teen and all my friends were listening to Elvis and Beetles - this music resonated for me. 4d

elysianstudios Part of the #art #process is as much about destruction as it is creation. You have to be willing to destroy as much as you are driven to create. This small stack of paintings were removed from their stretcher frames today, and the feeling of new possibilities in paint is exciting! #workinprogress 5d

elysianstudios Varnish night! It takes oil paintings 1-2 years to completely dry, and then they need a protective coat of varnish which restores a lot of vibrancy and detail and protects the artwork for longevity. It smells pretty strong, but is a very fun part of the process. Watching paintings age is truly a joy! #inthestudio #process #oilpainting #ilovemywork #joy 1w

elysianstudios Took some time to join a drawing group today at the Denver Art Museum- our challenge was transparency in the Asian Art exhibit- I focused my sketch on the perspective and architecture of the gallery interior -I didn't have time to complete it, but I like the idea that was started! #workinprogress #drawing #inmysketchbook 4w

elysianstudios Wishing everyone a Very Happy New Year's Eve! We celebrated by doing all of our favorite things in Denver: brunch at Denver Biscuit Company, shopping for books at Tattered Cover, listening to vinyl at Twist And Shout and picking out a Monty Python King Arthur from the Wall O' Pop Vinyl, enjoying the architecture and vintage map drawers of the Denver Public Library, and exploring the art exhibits of the Denver Art Museum! 1mon
