This blog - I'm Wes Rehberg - is dedicated to what I'm up to in writing and in the visual arts. I have a site also for experimental video art work called "The Video Curio Theater" at http://blog.rehberg.net. The theater is open.
Progression -- New title "Climate Prophet's Final Forecast -- oil painting on 16" x 20" canvas --
Recast a part of it to emphasize the abstraction -- after letting it rest, I felt more was needed -- still in process..
Except for minor touch-ups, feels complete -- letting it rest ...
I started this with idea of improvising from forms I drew in
a soft pastel titled “Spirit Upon.” In an ongoing conversation between intuition,
spontaneity and the painting, it went through changes, initially with
scriptural prophetic and transformational themes to the direction it’s heading
now. With the deluge in mind, I’ll begin to complete it expressionistically.
Progression -- “The Prophet Amos Has a Question” – oil painting on 20” x 24”
Feels nearly complete - needs touch-ups and to sit a bit ...
Getting a feel for oil paints for the first time – neglected them in the four years I painted three-plus decades ago and since I resumed in May. I had painted just with acrylics up to now. Eileen encouraged me to work with the oils. -- Added a little more here on the painting..
Beginning to scope out shapes, arrangement and color.
