Goldensides is the culmination of a summer's painting in the Tombstones. The show was inspired by my touring
public gallery show, Listening to the Mountain.
Using a similar process to that show, I chose one mountain, this time the one right across from the
campground in Tombstones Territorial Park. I painted it from late June to mid September on one foot square
panels. On the back of many of them, I wrote to Goldensides before I painted it.
I created some pieces that were deliberate groupings of paintings, as well as a body of work just listening to
that mountain. A summer's worth of Goldensides tracks the summer over 36 panels. That and some of the other
groupings, you can see below on this page.
When I got into my studio residency at Studio 204 this fall, I realized I wanted to paint some large canvases to
go with the show. The image above is one of those; Click here to see more of them
I also made small books to go with the show, as a way of making the writings on the back available for those
who want to read them. Contact me if you'd like to see or purchase copies.
