Mountain Oyster Club Contemporary Art Show

These are my paintings that are debuting at the Mountain Oyster Club Contemporary Art Show and Sale in Tucson, Arizona Nov 22, 2015 – Jan 8, 2016.

This year’s exhibition was selected from nearly 500 artists with 1,600 artworks, so I was delighted that both of my paintings were selected for the event for my first showing with MO.

New Collection – Raptors On A Larger Scale

A part of a raptor collection by Rebecca Latham in progress for exhibition in the Middle East with Mandala Fine Art

 

An update on studio happenings..

Things have been busy lately with a new collection of raptors being made for an exhibition with Mandala Fine Art planned to open in the Middle East.  I am very fortunate to have had so many experiences and research opportunities at various raptor centers across the US to put this body of work together.  It’s been a little bit of a stretch working so many large pieces in my usual high detail for this project, 12in x 16 in – 24 in x 36 in, but I think it is a good challenge to work through.  ..hopefully I will have more to post soon!

New Work – New Shows

Upcoming exhibitions have kept me pretty busy lately – this is an update of some of the recent finished works and in-progress pieces for the shows.  I’m currently planning out work for exhibitions in Dubai, The Netherlands, and Tulsa.. so more to come.

Commission Review

Working on a number of commissioned pieces lately.. I am often asked by interested collectors if having a commissioned work is possible, what is involved in getting one done, costs, and of course other finer details.  To answer that..  Yes – I do accept them – but in limited amounts due to the workload I already have.

Running across an article from Christies addressing the topic of commissions, a read I recommend for those considering ordering one, I thought I would share some of these sketches that were recently made for clients ordering a custom piece.

These pieces in the galleries below show the beginning design options of the commissioned pieces.  After this stage of showing designs for selection, I will begin the sepia stage that I often picture and then move on to color.  The final painting is approved by the collector before finishing, framing, and shipping.  Currently the chosen design of the snow leopard is nearing the later layers in color and should emerge from the yuck stage soon (i.e. it is not pictured at this time due to these technical difficulties).  For a full progression, you can see this earlier commission I made of a beloved pet named Chloe.

 

 

National Exhibition Of Wildlife Art in the UK

Three of my paintings are in this year’s National Exhibition of Wildlife Art in Wirral, UK.  The show will run through August 2nd, 2015.  Many thanks to my awesome cousin, Stuart, for snapping some photos at the preview opening. :)

 

The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art is an open annual exhibition based in the North of England.

NEWA was conceived in 1993 by a group of artists interested in depicting wildlife, with conservation as one of their underlying concerns. A donation from the exhibition is made each year to wildlife causes.

The aims of the exhibition are to promote and display outstanding examples of wildlife art from both professional and amateur artists.
