Thanks, Mary!

Congratulations on having your work featured at this gallery, Casey! I enjoyed browsing through their website, and hopefully the extra exposure will get more of your work into collector's homes :).

And kudos to that gallery for featuring and supporting several local artists; I wish more galleries would do this.

Hi Casey, Congratulations and the color is rich and exciting!

The red and blue in this piece have such a wonderful 'punch' amplified with the oranges and the referenced green. What a great composition! And great color... of course, what would one expect from The Colorist.

Kudos on the gallery representation.

I love this painting! Congratulations on the show!

Casey Klahn said...

Thank you, Peggy and Dan.

Don - thanks very much. I try to say, "I'm not 'the colorist,' that's the name of my blog." But, at this point, that distinction fails to fly. I do work in the colorist tradition, so I'll take the compliment.

This image is from memory, of a draw west of my house with a lot of wild rose bushes.

I like that top edge, where the darks meet the sky.

I find truth in the green sprouting in the draw.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Lisa!

Wish I could be there!! Your pastel is fabulous. The energy and texture of your markmaking is also reflected in your dynamic palette choice. Wow!

This has been one of my favorites since you first posted it. Let us know how the show went. I bet you knocked some socks off!

Jala Pfaff said...

Wish I could see them.
And you know this one is one of my all-time faves.

Casey Klahn said...

Hey, you Boulder artists. Thanks for commenting, Jala and Sam.

I'm not sure how the opening went - I was present for the past two but not this one.

To be honest, I am more focused on the studio and what I'm creating right now.
