The “Eleven” Series #2

The “Eleven” Series

#2-“Yellow Rectangles”-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

Though nimble in design, these 11 small paintings share a related element with most paintings/drawings I’ve worked with, in that they still originate from ‘Doodles’ in my Sketch Books.

Of note, during the past week I received final approval for a spot in an upcoming Group Exhibit at Y:Art Gallery to show these 11 small paintings.

A little ways off, I will still include the Exhibition dates and related information with each Monday Art posting and will Share their FB Event posting as it becomes available.

The Eleven Series

“Reaching”-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

On day Two of my “break” from painting (March 29th), I happened to see a relativity simple Doodle in my Sketch book. I looked over and saw a small 8” x 10” canvas. Suddenly the ‘break’ was over and I started on this several-week whirlwind of eleven 8” x 10” paintings. They are simple in design, quick in execution, some with a looser painting style than others, and most, are void of any narrative other than what an applied title might miserly suggest. They became an enjoyable exercise that set the tone for a few paintings in the second part of the  upcoming 12 + 12 project.

This is the first of the eleven, Titled “Reaching”, and these will be posted each Monday in the order that they were painted.

The Eleven Series

“A Walk in the Park”-Oil on Board

The last time I did a Monday Post of the 12 + 12 Project or any new Artwork was March 27th. At the time I felt I needed a break. Well, that break lasted 2 days before I picked up the brushes again and even though I haven’t posted any new Artwork over the last five months that doesn’t mean I haven’t been creating Artwork. Next Monday I will start posting the first of eleven 8” x 10” paintings I have completed. Following those Monday Postings, I will return to the Posting of the final 12 paintings of the 12 + 12 Project (of which I have also been working on during my ‘supposed’ break).

“A Walk in the Park” is an older work posted as a prelude to the upcoming New Work Postings starting Sept. 18th.
