My FREE FALL idea book will be at RioBravoFineArt Gallery in Truth or Consequences, NM for at least the first month of my show, NOW. I am putting a few online here in case anyone of you who cannot attend the show may want to purchase one. $25. includes shipping in the Continental USofA. You can let me know and I will let the gallery know to put a red dot on your page. Each page is 9"x 5.75" and acid free. All you have to do is frame! Thanks for your time and consideration....enjoy the images.
These drawings were done a number of years ago after seeing and listening to Jim Dine and his mate on a Charlie Rose interview. He was fabulous and his work was so inspiring...drawings at the time...that I did a series of my own. They were shown once in a Portfolio Show at the Tercera Gallery in Los Gatos, CA...again, years ago. They have been languishing in my flat files for too many years. Unframed. I am planning to display them again in a mini-retrospective next year. Thought I'd share them with you. If interested in any, please email. Approximately 30x22" but on handmade paper, so none are perfect rectangles. Beautiful, heavy, acid free paper with charcoal, acrylic and crayons. Enjoy. Tell me what you think, if you wish. I'd love to hear (and I'm tough if you don't care for them, ha).

I now have 14 pieces of art up on the Saatchi art site and hope you will take the time to check them out. Mostly new work. Many small pieces for my upcoming exhibition at RioBravoFineArt in Truth or Consequences, NM. Here's the web page for Saatchi. http://www.saatchiart.com/account/profile/183951
And here's the webpage for RioBravoFineArt: http://www.riobravofineartgallery.com/
My exhibit there will be in October of this year. In an adjoining room will be an exhibition by THE FAMILY WINKLER. That would be R. Wm. Winkler; Todd Winkler; Mark Winkler and Anne O'Sullivan Winkler. Will be an exciting show.
SUNNY DAYS, 22x30" acrylic and crayon on paper by Nolan Winkler (one of a few more representational pieces I will have in the show.
MY PRETTY PONY by Todd Winkler. On wood.
a MADONNA archival print by Anne O'Sullivan Winkler
I've been painting a LOT on paper for awhile. Did a number of colorful abstracts and now some not quite as colorful abstracts. I'm finding some newer imagery coming into view and it is exciting to me. As I may have mentioned before my mind is pretty much as blank as the paper or canvas or panel that awaits me on the studio walls. Then, on goes the music (Future Islands at this time...has been Glen Hansard, Fergus O'Farrell or Dylan in the past) and the paint starts moving. Sometimes flying as I had to clean up a big splotch of Hooker's Green today from my feet. So, let me just put up some of the images that have been coming to me of late and please take your time and enjoy them. I surely did enjoy painting and drawing them. The first few are all 22x30" and on paper.
ON A SALTY DAY
Next come a couple of small diptychs on paper...both are 11 x 22"
THE HEART OF EVERYTHING THAT IS
thanks for looking at these new images. I'm happy with them. There are lots more if you go to the LATEST WORK section of the site. And please feel free to leave a comment for me. I like to know people actually see this. Happy April everyone!
As the snow slowly melts here in nowhere, New Mexico, I am in the warm house rather than the freezing studio and painting 'snow' on paper. Each is 22x30" and I'm happy to say one of them is already spoken for. Thank you, sir.
. Enjoy the cold, snow with me. yi yi yi yi. And, if you're at all interested in one or two or three (an artist can dream, eh?), just use the contact information. Love those comments, too.
The first one shown here is a scene out our window. Of sorts. SILENCE IN THE SNOWY FIELDS. 22x30" acrylic, ink & crayon on paper. This piece has been spoken for, thank you, sir.
Next comes MY SUN EVERY MORNING. On this piece I have written about it: " The day began with a Payne's Grey sky and snow falling. My thoughts turned red to make a change in my day. Soon, the sun came out and I was, once again, happy with the melting snow." 22x30" acrylic and graphite on paper
Lastly (so far) is the first one painted: WEST COUNTRY SONG. 22x30" acrylic, crayon, ink on paper.
Adding the one I just finished today, 1 January 2016: THE WOODS ARE LOVELY, DARK.... acrylic, ink, crayon on d'Arches paper, 22x30"
We are having our first snow of the season here in nowhere, New Mexico. It's cold and I'm staying warm in the house and painting some pieces on paper. This one, WEST COUNTRY SONG (thanks to Edna St. Vincent Millay for the title), is 22x30" and acrylic, ink, crayon and graphite on paper. It's our day. Today. And probably tomorrow. I am waiting for the sun (California native that I am).
I have begun to put up a number of pieces from our art collection onto my eBay site. Pieces include Sol LeWitt, Jim Wagner, Fritz Scholder (though waiting on a counter offer on that piece), David Farrell, David Koch, and more. Fun and wonderful pieces that we have enjoyed for many years. Time to downsize our lives and collection. In most cases we are asking the same as we paid or just a bit more. Please check out my 'posidiva' page on eBay, starting here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/David-Koch-NM-artist-painting-CONVERSATION-WITH-GUN-free-shipping-/281890504530?hash=item41a1fbbf52:g:tNgAAOSwHPlWdtWe

POPPY with red/orange border. Monotype by me...done for la de da hotels around the world. they print them for rooms and I keep the original.
I often see, online, placements of paintings in a home setting. So, though I normally work smaller than what I'm showing here, I have done a gazillion (well...) commissions to upsize my work. Think about it. And smile at my audacity.
When I get those commissions, it's usually for la de dah hotels around the world...but look how nice these look in a home setting. New work, older work....I do it all. Fun to make these setups and hope you enjoy them, too.
Happy to announce that I had been asked to paint something to go with one of seven 'winning' essays for a book to be published by The Wonder Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The essay I painted to is called FOURTEEN and is a wonderful read about a woman's 14 year old daughter. Bright, 'blending' and a competitive swimmer who wears lavendar sunglasses for her 'blending' with other teens. This was a fun thing for me and a privilege to be selected to be one of the artists for painting by director of the Institute, Linda Durham...a wonder in herself.
THE BOOK OF DAISY is 24x24, acrylic, crayon and graphite on canvas and ready for purchase. Contact me if interested.
Next comes GHOSTS OF BEAUTIES. Another 18x18" acrylic, graphite, crayon, charcoal & oil on paper and mounted onto a panel.
It's me, Nolan Winkler. Here to keep you up to date.
