Wolf Kahn

 A while back, my friend and wonderful artist Shannon Bueker sent me a postcard with the image of one of Wolf Kahn's paintings on it. I became a fan immediately. The colors in his paintings are beyond amazing and have me wanting to add color to my work. I saw this turquoise barn painting the other day and I thought maybe I would try making a barn and glaze it with my turquoise raku glaze. Could be interesting..... I love turquoise and enjoyed the pieces I made using that glaze. The color just didn't seem to fit somehow with the tera sig work I was making, but this is a possibility. I am also thinking a lot about black and white right now. I love my old color palette, but color is so much fun and I am thinking I might need to experiment with some new choices...... we'll see. First the temps have got to get better. Let me up, I've had enough!!!!!!!

Wolf Kahn's stuff is wonderful. He paints a lot on Martha's Vineyard with a high school friend of mine, Allen Whiting. Go to allenwhiting.com and look at his paintings. I think you'll like them.
