New School Color - Casey Klahn
This may be my all-time favorite!
I definitely see the sitting figure's back. He looks into the far yellow. Amazing. Bravo.
It makes me feel like I'm viewing this through a wet windshield, in a best way. Impressive calligraphy, these restless marks make the piece looks like it's in constant movement. At the same time, there's a balance between the silence and the restlessness. Great!!
I'll be looking at this one for a long while. Winter Light,Washed Light,Subtext Red and this one are so abstracted but they look truer than true.
VERY, very well "played"!!This has such form! And is yet, so... Abstract ~ top & bottom / left & right ~ suffused with a palpable sense of Light that brings it all together!A Wonderful piece!!
I love the light in this piece. Stunning. You always make it look so simple, yet so complex.
Lovely subdued yet rich color here, Casey. The prairie series has yielded some wonderful gems - this is new favorite among them for me.
One of my favorites!
Your analogous color scheme with a balance of bluish gray is very appealing. But also of great appeal is the abstract and expressionist qualities. Sometimes it is so effective not to spell everything out, but to express it's essence!Why ask questions? Indeed...life would be easier on us if we didn't. However, I would wither without questions. :-)
These wonderful comments are touching. I'll be back with individual responses later - this morn I'm in the studio framing like mad. My internet feed is slim. Thanks!
Add this one to my favorites list.
Thank you for sharingThis fabulous work with usSeeYousoon
Thank you for the visit, Skizo - from Portugal. Great to meet you via the blog.
Looks like many have favored this one, and I am humbled by a generous response. Lisa, Brian, Jala and Barbara - I appreciate you.Irina, congrats on your blog's success (100 Follows!) and thanks for seeing the vision in this piece.Nika, you must have read Elijah's critique of my work. He saw rain everywhere, and that is a basic element in all of my work. My life is totally seen through a rainy windshield, because I grew up in the coastal rain forest. You are perceptive, too.John, I've been enjoying your recent series, too. I am happy to be putting my foot down on the abstract side of the fence, lately.James, thanks for the look, too. I appreciate your view.Jeanette, thanks for following on Twitter! I'm glad this one has contradictions - I'm going to look closer at it.Sally, good analysis, too. I am glad you are looking closely - you are on the path to artistic growth, as you say in your blog.This artwork, BTW, went to a new home last week, along with 7 others. My patrons raided my studio - and right before Sausalito!! No wonder I'm scrambling to get ready. I will tell the story in more detail soon.I leave Monday (I think). Should I live blog the famous Sausalito show? That might be fun, huh?
Exactly! I'm asking those very questions! Looks dry and autumnal.
You are on the path, Kvan. Glad your boat is getting closer to home.
I just found your blog through another blog... beautiful work! I feel the emotion with every colorful piece. Very inspiring.
To be honest, I never read Elijah's critique, but I looked it up and enjoyed the read. I find myself in agreement with him. The guy has you all figured out, Mr. Klahn:)
Nice to have you reading, Rose!That was kind of you to read Elijah's critique, Nika. I was both flattered, and interested at how he nailed the rainy/water theme, even though at the time I hadn't done any strictly water themed art. He is a talented guy, who would hold his own very well as a professional critic.
one of my all time favorites of yours---it is fantastic!
Thank you, Celeste! I am following your painting event in Hood River with interest.
