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.
