Here’s a step by step of an ambitious project, a collaboration between patron and painter, with both gratified with the result.
Here’s a step-by-step of a recent large painting, created for the season . . . and an offering of prints. Also, see invitation for our Spring Studio Show, April 27-28.
Here’s a quick overview of our art-making hiatus last month in Oregon . . . from blank walls to filling the whole space. Also, note our next show, April 27-28.
It’s always good, at this time of the year, to take a quick look back, as well as forward. Here’s a glance at some of the work that went out the door this last year.
Here’s a view of Mexico you may not know. Enjoy it with us. Also, this month it’s our show at the house–the weekend before Thanksgiving. Details inside.
Here’s a theme composed of seven women in gestural beauty and one austere pleasure. Go figure. And enjoy the art.
It’s August and the love of beauty never stops, shining all the more, if not specific faces, through gestures of the heart. Check out these seven.
Can’t get outside enough? Get some inspiration by checking out these recent landscapes. And check the announcement for a plein air workshop for painters and a show for appreciators.
Take a break for beauty and check out the delicate works on paper produced by artist Anne Moore. Or better yet, come to her show at Sandstone Gallery in Laguna Beach this Thursday evening. Details inside.
Once again I painted live (in front of people) for an event highlighting the plight of the world’s orphans. Again I made oversized faces. Appropriate, perhaps, for an oversized challenge. Take a moment and consider the art, and the children.
It’s a bit of a wonder, the creative process. First there’s nothing, then there’s something. Like magic . . . though it’s not a trick.
We went to Oregon for three weeks of painting and printmaking. It was a time and a place “set apart,” as suggested in the title’s adjective. Here’s a brief overview and a peek at the art made.
Here’s an update on things visual, including our plans for an Oregon studio get away (with link for you to check out) and a time-lapse video of an hour-long portrait condensed to just one minute.
Here’s a quick look at work sold in 2011, and an invitation to subscribe to Blank Slate, a new blog on the art called “life.”
This issue we’re sharing six works that didn’t pass muster in a local competition and some thoughts about doing well anyhow. It’s something for all of us.
Here’s a brief e-gallery with only one picture (of 15 paintings). It’s announcing our studio show this weekend. Come if you can; you’ll love it, and we’d love to see you.
Always exploring new subjects and ways to paint them, this month it’s abstract landscapes, another way to experience beauty. And we’re inviting you to our open studio show, coming up November 12 and 13. Further info inside.
Here’s a look at the progress of a custom painting with custom colors for a custom space. It’s a sample of what can be done. Our environments can be made beautiful. If it gives you any ideas, let me know.
For the fourth year Anne’s fine artwork is being featured and the famous Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach. It’s work for the discerning eye, and it’s work you can own.
Children are always a challenge to paint, particularly when they’re your own, or your grandchildren. For all that, here are 12 of ours for your entertainment. (They always entertain us.)
Our semi-annual Studio Show and Sale is happening this weekend. It’s Saturday evening from 4:00 and Sunday afternoon from 1:00. Lots of new work. Also, new workshops coming up. Details inside.
This month Golden West College is showing five pieces of mine . . . the opening being tomorrow evening. The paintings they’re showing are here. Plus a clip of music from last time’s chamber show. And, mark your calendar for our next show at the house (May 7-8).
Today we’re sharing with you announcements of two separate shows, one for just an afternoon and the other for another week and a half. The first really is a concert, with the art an extra, just for the ambiance. Stands to reason: how many art shows have we been to where the music was background.
Besides showing some beautiful and new hand-made prints here we’re also sharing photos of a very large painting now presiding over the lobby of a Christian university in South Africa. And we’ve got lots of dates for upcoming workshops, lectures, and shows…including a Show at the House in May.
Greetings of the new year! Here’s some new art for you to enjoy, and some new galleries showing it. That, and an invitation to Art Walk in Laguna this Thursday evening . . . and some other events coming up.
Here’s a very brief greeting for you, in art, at the close of another year.
Last month we went to South Africa. Check out the pictures and sense the inspiration of it all. Also, this month, it’s our fall show at the house–November 20 and 21. See inside for details.
Take a moment for art. The paintings here are headed for South Africa . . . at least those that aren’t sold beforehand. Until then, they’re available. If interested, click on the pictures themselves. Or just enjoy the international tour with the light commentary. It’s for the art of our lives.
Again this summer Anne is showing at the Laguna Festival of Art. Here’s a preview, plus a new exploration: Handcrafted Books.
Art is in very large measure an exercise in creativity. One continues to explore. It can be crazy from a marketing perspective but it’s one of the reasons to be an artist. Also see news about upcoming workshops.
It’s this weekend we’re hosting our semi-annual show at the house. And once again we’re showcasing a lot of new art, and some at very, very low prices. See invitation at bottom of post.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Studio Show and Open House, April 24-25. Meantime enjoy the show at the Crystal Cathedral with its monumental new paintings, inside.
In the next couple of weeks we’ll be hosting groups like the Laguna Arts Council and the local branch of the American Association of University Women. And whenever we get to it again we’ll be opening our home for show. These are shows for paintings and original prints, but after all these years it being [...]
Sorry, I couldn’t resist that title. The women here are not loose at all, at least not necessarily. Read on. And check out the upcoming show as well as the Loosen Up workshop offered for Feb. 13-14.
Here’s a very brief e-gallery, featuring just two paintings. Mainly we want to remind you of our show at the house this weekend. The invitation with info is inside, or go here: http://bit.ly/3teCPU. Come if you can.
The last little while has produced two commissions that called for canvases that would fit in arch shaped niches. Here’s a little of the process and the result as they look in their unique locations. Also, here’s your invitation to the next show at the house, and this Thursday’s art walk in Laguna.
Here’s an e-gallery with just one painting to share. That’s in part because this morning we’re running out the door for England. Actually we’ll be flying. (And not sailing, as the shown painting might imply.) Take a minute and enjoy.
Once again Anne is the featured artist at the Sandstone Gallery in Laguna Beach. The opening is this Thursday evening at the ever-popular Art Walk. It’ll be a great summer evening; come out and enjoy it…unless you’re off in Japan, like some of the subjects in this issue.
For an oil painter, I’ve been doing a good deal in acrylic lately. It’s in part to create works on paper to sell for less than works on canvas. See inside. Also, you’re invited to our up-coming show at the house in the summer. It’s the weekend after next and the weather will be perfect. Click on the following for info: http://www.hyattmoore.com/egallery/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/House-Show-809-Single.pdf
Once again Anne is among the illustrious artists showing at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach. Here’s a preview. Also, check out the new home page for Moore and Moore Art, introduced here. And note the dates of some up-coming shows. So take a quick break: It’s about art!
Painting is always happening around this house and studio, but the subject matter and style can differ from week to week. Or day to day. Here is a number of beach themes, and dancers. Take a quick break and add art to your day.
The Last Supper with Twelve Tribes has been my most popular painting. It continues to move out, and with me along . . . through public speaking near and far. Now a synopsis of that is on YouTube . . . viewable right here on the e-gallery, along with samples of other paintings symbolic of the season.
Enigmatic Influence seemed a fitting title of this e-gallery as it features a number of Anne’s recent creations. Besides that, it announces a number of shows (1) an opening this week of her work in Laguna, (2) both of us included at the La Quinta Art Festival, and (3) a special pre-view and sale this weekend at our studio/gallery/house. For an invitation to that go here: http://www.hyattmoore.com/_media/Loosen-Up-Workshop_March-2009.pdf
Here’s a tribute to Winter while we’re still in its midst. Being a Southern Californian, winter is something I visit, like over Christmas, in Minnesota and Wisconsin, where we went for family and frost and a great abundance of snow. After that, it was back in the studio with a lot of white paint.
Greetings of the New Year to you. Last blog featured paintings with gold; this time it’s “works on paper.” If this seems a commentary on the direction of the economy it’s only coincidental. We think you’ll find these just as special. Also take note of the classes resuming again in our studio, and a “first” for me, a weekend workshop for artists. For details or to sign up, go here: http://www.hyattmoore.com/_media/Loosen-Up-Workshop.pdf
It really has nothing to do with the present state of the economy, but lately I’ve been investing in gold. Gold leaf. It adds a whole new dimension in painting. And these paintings are looking for homes. We’re asking our friends for ideas. Feel free to contribute any suggestions, or share this with others who may have some. Meantime, enjoy the pictures, and the words.
It’s become an annual event. Once a year we open our house and studio to all for a weekend of art. In a sense it’s an inventory sale.
Commissions have been in focus these last several months, and of those, a good number have been portraits. Portraits: always the most challenging of paintings. Many artists won’t attempt them, and it was awhile before I would. Now it’s a regular thing. Click the link for samples, with their stories…as well as opportunity to get one yourself, and info about our annual Open House and Show coming up.
Once again, Anne Moore will be the featured artist at Sandstone Gallery in Laguna Beach. The opening is tomorrow evening, during the ever-festive Art Walk. Come if you can. Also this month Hyatt Moore will be featured as guest lecturer-demonstrator at the San Clemente Art Association. You’re invited to that, too. Then, classes are starting again at the Moore&Moore Art studio. For info on all this, and a sample of some fine art, lean in and visit the e-gallery. (How easy is that!)
There’s a show this evening in the city of Orange and you’re invited. Gallery on Glassell in “Old Town” has been carrying my work for a number of years. I know it’s short notice, particularly for those of you a thousand miles away, but I thought I’d at least share a few pieces that will be on display. Call it a moment for aesthetics and be enriched.
Last time we featured Anne’s work at the Laguna Festival of Arts. The show continues through the summer. Don’t miss it. This weekend only there’s another show featuring my work (along with others’). I’ll have a lot of pieces, many subjects and good prices. It’s in Newport Beach. Address and times are at the bottom of this e-gallery. Hope to see you there.
The long anticipated show is upon us and you’re all invited. The Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach is a prestigious event where every year hundreds of artist compete and only a few new ones are accepted. After years of applying for both of us, this year Anne was accepted. Take five minutes and see why.
Every year about this time the San Clemente Art Association sponsors a plein air competition. Painters, including me, have been painting San Clemente this week which will culminate this Saturday with a show and sale. Included will be at least one ala prima painted during the “quick draw.” Take a minute and check it out. (Or take an hour and drop by on Saturday.)
Here are a few more of the “Women from the Back” theme before we move on. Not that this theme will ever be done, having enough intrigue to last a life time (as with everything else). Once again, the paintings here had their genesis in London’s National Portrait Gallery, and in the case of one, some preliminary thumbnail sketches are shown that were used in their making. Happy looking at these lookers, and over their shoulders.
We left off last time with my introducing a new genre, “Women from the Back.” I showed a couple, along with the drawings that preceded them. In this issue I show another, one that I didn’t see coming myself. It’s pretty dramatic. Then there’s another large piece, from an altogether different genre, “Cowboys from the Side”? Take a five-minute look and tell me what you think. PS I’ll be in Boca Raton, Florida this week, doing some painting as “performance.” Maybe more on that another day…
It grew from making those drawings and paintings shown in the last e-gallery, the two fellow classmates viewed from behind. I realized I’d come across intriguing subject matter, something I can only call, “Women from the Back.” Take five minutes and feed your art side.
We’ve been grateful for the response to the first blog, published two weeks ago. It was about drawing and how that’s generally the basis for painting. Continuing that theme, this issue displays a couple of recent drawings that went on to become paintings, and one example Anne’s work, which involved no drawing at all. Take a moment to enjoy the art.
Hello friends. Here’s our first attempt at a blog. It’s designed as part of the Hyatt Moore website. Click on the link here for a full look/read. There may be glitches; but with your patience we’ll get them worked out as we go. Note, too, the mention at the bottom of a couple of current shows. It’s all a way to stay updated, and to stay in touch. HM
