Studio Notes


Private collection of  Dr. Britt Anderson PHD

This painting by Artist Sam Roloff is one of his earliest examples of his “Back-Story Underpainting” method where the artist paints with more expression and color at first. Then much like a “Time Capsule” each layer is painted over hidding nearly all the original work, look closely and you will still see hints of the past. He likens this method to an Archeologist digging through the layers of ground.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC

I have donated some hand painted jeans to the Purple Gala at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC for Epilepsy. And A.C. Green will be wearing these down the runway and they will be auctioned off later that night. The NFL wives have put the final touches on the jeans by adding some sparkle.

This is the first ever “book” that belongs with the pants.

The book is a collection of photos that were taking durning the creation process. You can see here that the book is open and that there is a small photo of the artist Sam Roloff painting the first coat of gesso in his studio in Portland Oregon USA.
