Daphne Hill, my long time painting partner, and I have a business together painting collaborative works. We've been working together as Hill&Stump for about 7 years. We paint florals and plants, some inspired by Southern California. Daphne has recently moved back to her childhood hometown in Tennessee to care for family there. So now we're going to work remotely, and get together a few times a year to finish paintings and do shows.
Above are some new starts (only the first pass) inspired by the Mohave Desert. We had a show at Bunny Gunner/Taylor Junction a few years ago, and we painted some Joshua Trees and Ocotillo, but those have all sold. A good sign! Hoping to do a show in the fall in 29 Palms. Below are sold paintings...
Anna does most of the writing. Ted does most of the photos. But sometimes we switch. We are repairing a distressed property in 29 Palms, California, and eventually hope to run an artist residency there.
