I've decided that I need to make some changes. First, there's this guy named Kevin Hunter who is a landscape painter in Scotland who keeps displacing me in search results - so I'm going to do what every good American artist has done for a century - add my middle name to my artist name: so from here on out it's Kevin Russell Hunter. I will continue to use the abbreviated KH signature in addition to a K Hunter signature that incorporates the abbreviated one.
Second: I totally love my new studio digs - so I've named them and given them a logo. Third, I need to talk about Design. I've been an illustrator, designer, and an art director for over forty years in addition to being a painter. I'm reviving my interest in design - so that will be integrated into the new blog as well. Fourth, A Sense of Place will now join A Sense of Self as projects under the main heading of my activities at 12 West. And it will all become a new blog titled 12 West: http://12West.weebly.com.
I hope you'll bookmark it and join me. I plan on posting three times weekly. I think you'll enjoy it!!
This site is both the chronicle of my recent sabbatical - the theme of which was "a sense of place" and my ongoing work in life after sabbatical. I try to share thoughts and insights about my work and the practice of painting that others will find useful and applicable to their own work. I hope you enjoy your visit!
