Paintings?!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was an artist named M.River (or was it Mark River? or was it Mike Sarff?) who madeÖ paintings?!

Yes. Paintings! And he’s posting them all on his blog!

Check ‘em outÖ

mriver adds - yep. paintings - thx. t.whid

Some context Ė

I started working on them in 2001 and have made 300 or so. They are all acrylic on canvass with the black line done with ink and a dip pen (bamboo). They are done in long series or sets (like one year was only painting heads using 3 colors). A good deal of them are based on NYT photos (not the ones on Tinjail so far).The reason Iíve been posting them on Tinjail is Iíve decided to try to document them all before Jan. Iím only a small way in so check back to that link in a few months and I will hopefully be done.

Oh…the other thing is that after painting consistently since 01, I suddenly stopped this summer. I think Iím using this time of documentation to reset / rethink the whole thing. Donít know yet. permanent link to this post
