Winter is the season for quiet reflection and rejuvenation. Even as it comes to an end, there is the desire for one more day of hot tea, an engaging read, and time to collect one’s thoughts. Kevin often finds winter to be his most creative time of the year. Here is a detail of his recent painting, “The Artist’s Parlor”, suggesting the cozy introspection of the season.
This winter you can see Kevin’s paintings adorning the sets of two premium cable television shows. Look for them in the first season finale of HBO’s Divorce, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church. In addition, two of Kevin’s paintings (including “Rolling Hills Of Home”, above) adorn the dining room of character Chuck Rhoades, Sr on season two of Showtime’s Billions, starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis. Happy viewing!
It’s gouache season! I have fourteen new gouache paintings on display at Mohonk Mountain House through the month of September. This annual exhibit is in the rustic Barn Museum and features views of the Shawangunks. Gouache paint is an opaque form of watercolor used by designers and illustrators. These paintings are inspired by early twentieth century children’s book illustrations and by antique hand colored postcards.
If you’re going to be spending a day at Mohonk, be sure and stop by!
