i’ve followed Galen Cheney’s works for quite a few years now. i’m always impressed that she can harness what may at first seem to be a chaotic mix of elements into a cohesive whole. she is also fearless about letting her work change over time, which is not an easy thing for a successful artist to do. for those of you who are interested in technique, her work is inspirational; scraping, overpainting, taping… one of her mentors when she was completing her MFA was Grace Hartigan – whom i have covered in a separate webinar available on artistvenu. besides admiring her paintings, i admire her work ethic! she also does a blog on her website, which is smart. the more that you can communicate with your audience, the better! you can check out more of her artwork on her website (galencheney.com), and also view several videos of her discussing her work on YouTube. enjoy!
