Simplification and abstraction, concepts I play with to varying degrees in my work. This little painting is all about the feel of light.
Another unusual painting in my Apocalyptic Bloom series. This is an ongoing collection of paintings I am creating for no discernible reason… that’s really how it ought to be!
I mounted three small water paintings I did for a water themed show at the James May Gallery. This gallery is in Algoma, Wisconsin, a beautiful part of the country. The town is in Door County, I have only been there one time but hope to go back! For now my paintings will be making the visit for me.
These three paintings are 10″x10″ acrylic/open acrylic on plexiglass. I am mounting them on deep cradled boards to give them a bigger presence!
Welcome to April!
Sometimes I will do little abstract studies. I generally only reference them for color or interesting brushwork or mark making. This one stuck with me a bit. It led to a lot of other representational ideas but not sure they captured the simple allure of this.
A lot of my work tends to be autumnal. This one in particular seems appropriate for a Halloween post. The subject is a monkey skull in an old iPhone box. The juxtaposition seems to say it all.
