Working back into this one after leaving it for a few weeks. This woman breathing birds makes me think about what we add to and what we take from, life. I'm a huge music lover and I'm constantly listening to favorites while discovering new artists. Today on rotation: Helios, lovely electronic infused mellow piano music #contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #postcontemporaryart #studioflint #joshuaflint #figurativeart #figurepainting #memoryscapes #kunst #artinamerica #partsofpaintings #stagesofpainting

I did a interview with the Jackson Open Painting Prize (UK). If you want to hear me blather on about my approach to painting check it out. Plus there are a few new paintings featured. A link to the article is in my profile. #jacksonpaintingprize #studioflint #joshuaflint #artinterview #creativeprocess #kunst #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist

My painting 'Lifeboat', from a few years ago is on the cover of a book about Italian politics. I don't speak the language but was happy to contribute the image for the cover. Small book publishing is important to support. Regardless of where, if it's big business controlling the gov't that's never a good thing. #studioflint #joshuaflint #bookcover #nemicipolitici

Corner of the studio. Wrapping up some new paintings this week. I've posted stages or details of these but not in their entirety. That'll happen soon ish. #joshuaflint #oilpainting #curator #contemporaryartist #studioflint #stagesofpainting #creativeprocess #c#partsofpaintings #postcontemporaryart #memoryscapes #soloshow #figurativeart #figurativeart

A weekend book recommendation. Might be a good way to beat the heat fellow west coasters. The author walks you through a broad range of characters in the history of art, focusing mostly on contemporary artists of all disciplines. Personable, engaging, and enlivens many topics/artists in an honest way; connecting it to what it means to live a creative life. #michaelkimmelman #studioflint #joshuaflint #bookrecommendation #booksforcreatives #theartistlife

Sometimes I plan a painting and then it does not turn out. So I remove something in the composition to open the piece back up. In this case still nothing occurs to me. Finally after letting it sit for a few weeks without a solution I turn the canvas sideways and begin again anew. Those previous choices now become active in the imagery layered on top of it. Both informing and effecting the new decisions to come. Long story long turn your phone sideways to glimpse parts of the older painting, as the too will be (mostly) gone very soon. #modernpainter #painter #studioflint #stagesofpainting #partsofpaintings #postcontemporaryart #contemporaryart #joshuaflint #figurepainting #figurativepainting #memoryscapes #creativeprocess #contemporaryartist #curator #oilpainting #rewilding

Small experimental acrylic on mylar. A bit of a throw away idea but it has inched me closer to how I want to treat my final surface. I'm working hard 😓 on new shows so haven't let those final paintings out of the studio yet. There are snippets of those paintings on my feed so I'm excited to show them when they're done. Failing forward has been my motto this week. Really just failing, which is important to growth. #contemporaryartist #creativeprocess #contemporaryart #figurepainting #preliminarysketch #ideation #acrylicpainting #mylar #painter #modernpainter #failingforward

Acrylic study on paper. I used the acrylic much like watercolor in this piece for some different effects. #joshuaflint #studioflint #postcontemporaryart #preliminarywork #preliminarysketch #figurepainting #contemporaryart #creativeprocess #contemporaryartist
