Simplification and abstraction, concepts I play with to varying degrees in my work. This little painting is all about the feel of light.
I started this painting just about a year ago. I decided it was time to finish it or prep the surface for a new painting. I ended up adding some wave detail and strengthening the contrast.
I really like the color scheme and moody vibes of this painting. As I prepare a lot of giant boards I am going to be going back and forth between small paintings and huge panels. Ultimately I want to create more large scale epic works. The large pieces are much more expensive to make and end up with a large price tag so tougher to sell. Ultimately they are more satisfying and I aim to please myself.
A small sunny painting on my studio table.
Always chasing, it is solitary work.
A couple water studies. These really loved the sun shining through my studio window. The light angles are changing with the season.
Playing around with some nocturnal cloudscapes.
Today I am standing still, reflecting on previous paintings. Thinking about the way forward… possibly cleaning my studio.
My solo show is up and running at Abend Gallery. I am decompressing and playing in the studio.
Without a home. Bison are such beautiful and sadly symbolic creatures.
