  • “Still Open,” a new exhibition of ink paintings by Emily Rapport at Eat Paint Studio

    “Still Open,” explores a familiar subject for Rapport – neighborhood scenes and portraits of a changing urban landscape. Her typically vibrant painting palette is restricted to monochromatic earth tones of black, grey, brown and sepia. 24 inky urban landscape paintings feature down-at-the-heel homes, corner stores, vacant lots, and construction sites from the near Northside neighborhoods…

  • Southport El Platform

      [portfolio_slideshow size=large autoplay=false random=false centered=true carousel=true navstyle=graphical navpos=top pagerstyle=thumbs pagerpos=bottom] Returning to the studio after some period of neglect is just like an athlete returning to training after being sedentary. Gestural strokes are hard: my forearm is weak and my endurance for more than 2 or 3 hours at the studio is pathetic. But,…

  • New watercolors on their way to Amsterdam!

    (Note: If you are naturally social and well-coiffed you might not get this initial reference…but bear with me.) You know how if you have to go to a party or wedding and you look in your closet to find it is stocked with nothing but euro track suits and pajamas…? I kinda felt like that when a…

  • Addison Rooftops

    , , ,

    Making time for the studio a success! Much better than complaining about not having time to paint. Check out the posts below to see how this painting progressed. Also, finally figured out that I had my exposure setting way too low on my camera and that was why everything was so dark! Will re-shoot next…

  • Painting Winnemac Park

    Working from a photo taken last summer that reminded me of one of the photos in the William Eggleston show in the Modern Wing of AIC. A similar palette of purples and greens; dusk, uncertainty – the little girl is holding a stick – petulant and bored, violent. Maybe. Some new progress paintings from the…

  • Get Thee to Thy Studio

    Far too many weeks have gone by without a studio interlude. It’s easy to lose perspective when you (or I) am stuck on the hamster wheel of project deadlines, laundry, cooking, cleaning and everything else that we “have” to do to maintain our present state of comfort. I do feel a slight guilt at being…

  • New watercolors, scenes from Chicago

  • “New Cleaners”

    , , ,

    This is the dry cleaner opposite the bus-stop on Damen Ave. and Grace. Sign painting is like surgery; you’ve got to have a steady hand and complete confidence in where you’re going with that loaded brush. I have not mastered sign painting – but – neither am I a sign painter. (Previous Shot)

  • Rockwell Station, Winter Scene

    , , ,

    Fresh off the easel. A painting I started over a year ago and had to scrap once I realized it needed to be painted on a larger canvas (this one is 38″ x 60″). Sometimes, you just have to start back at the beginning.
