Well after getting advice from social media types I’ve now added an Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/christophergreenstudio/. It’s inchoate but you get the point. Also, these same media socialites tell me I need to have a Facebook page not just a profile to send people to therefore I now have https://www.facebook.com/christophergreenstudio as my artist page. It was the URL of my profile but I’ve changed that to https://www.facebook.com/christophergreenencaustics for what that’s worth. Enjoy the confusion or at least embrace it as indeed I do.
I’ve just completed Clouded Leopard, a 12 x 15 in. companion piece to the 6 x 8 in Big Cat. You can see both pieces and more at Seersucker’s Southern Confectionary Co. on Main Street, Franklin until August 5th. The night of the 5th all the paintings and I will be at Taziki’s on Main Street for the August Art Scene.
What do you do when a patron commissions something special to have autographed at the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in Cooperstown, NY? You produce a ball and glove painting so that the enshrined player(s) can sign an almost finished painting of a ball. Once signed, I’ll finish up the painting which has been left bare in the large area of the ball between the stitches and wording.
This 9 x 11 in. painting is based on a sample of medieval glass on display in the Musée national du Moyen Âge, Paris
It was a great night at Friday’s Art Scene in Franklin. Met tons of people, got wonderful feedback, sampled the best candy, and sold a number of paintings. I’d like to thank Jordan at the Seersucker Southern Craft Confection Co. for his help and hospitality. Their candy is definitely a cut above anything you are used to. If you’d like to experience some of my artwork, then head down to Seersucker’s on Main Street where I have a number of paintings displayed and on sale for the next month.
It’s time to meet and greet the public again. I’ll be painting live at the Seersucker Southern Craft Confection Co. tomorrow night, July 1st, during Franklin’s Art Scene. Come by to say howdy and sample some brilliantly good gourmet chocolate made right here in Middle Tennessee. The art crawl lasts from 6 – 9 p.m.
It’s time for another great live experience at Ansbach Artisans this Saturday night from 6-9 p.m. Come out and talk to artists, including me, creating live in the Gallery. I’ve learned a lot since my first event. I now know that I will actually get very little done on a painting. People are very fascinated and excited about my style, technique, and the encaustic medium, therefore my painting in progress will be much further along AND have plenty of mindless areas to work on. Specifically areas that don’t require loads of concentration while I talk to patrons with a hot pen tip in my hand.
I’ve just launched a new line of paintings called Decor Accents. For now these paintings will all be 5 x 7 inches with simple subjects and/or bold colors. These are unframed, lower priced, original artworks, that can be used throughout the home to brighten up any area. They will soon be available for sale and no-obligation requests are welcomed.
I’m well on my way through my next piece entitled “the cello player.” This is a hybrid work of an encaustic pen-stroke piece grafted onto a separate, brushed encaustic paint background.
