statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

This has been a really crazy busy time...
I wanted to direct your attention to the "Smokestack" button (to the upper right) it's a project we have been working for about 5or6 weeks its ready for download, but the printed version is still going through proof approval.
It includes my photos and poetry from some very talented writers from the "Flowers of Sulfur" group.

Included in fosebook smokestack is photography from J.B. Krost and poetry from Megan Duffy, Anders Enochsson, Jenny Enochsson, Peter Greene, Francis Scudellari and A’keith Walters.

These guys and gals really did a great job! and made the project fly through all the expected bumps.
I'm very proud of the project. its FREE for download and if you have a few extra bucks  go ahead and buy it the proceeds go to the World Wildlife Federation.

While in Canada I finished four canvas's, I have one left to finish, will post when complete.
Normally I would hold the images and release them one by one, but I figured I'd just show the series, and get on with other things

So here they are the "Lake Panache Series"
The Cooking Cabin
acrylic/canvas
 
Bass Island

Pickerel Channel

The Point

This was my studio......
The light was lacking but the charm was unbelievable!
I wanted to give a shout-out to my old and new Lake Panche friends

Jenny Enochsson said...

Impressive work, jb! I just love the atmosphere of both the painting and the photos.

I think you managed to capture the mystery of the place. I have not been there myself, but it feels like I am there when I look at your work.

Jenny...
Thank-you,
there is a quiet tension there at all times, its a good one, not a bad one.
as for the paintings I had to turn my back and paint my mind... there's just too much detail to try to grab.
thanks again

Nice paintings, especially the "Cooking Cabin," and a cozy looking studio. Glad you made it back! ;-)

jbkrost said...

A.D......
thanks, yeah the cooking cabin was the funnest of the lot...
there is a constant fear of fire there, we have no running water, electric, or any thing that would put out a fire except a bucket of water...
glad you like
