Arrange (2015)

A new piece that has a Kandinsky-like feel.  I love his muted colors and his lyrical designs.  This one just sort of came to life.

Another “departure piece” for me.  I began this one by applying the paint from the tube onto the paper.  This is a dry sponge piece.  There are several layers of paint making up this piece added in a kind of random even sporadic way.  Thought there was a depth to this piece visually that created lots of interesting things to view.

I applied all the paint directly onto the surface of the paper & then streaked it around with a very mildly moistened sponge.  First layer was background color.  The central section of the piece is at least 3 layers and lots of additions to the top coat before feeling as though this painting was done.

Deep (2015)

A new painting that is a bit of an homage to Rothko.  This is not the painting I expected to emerge but here’s the end result.  Probably 4-5 layers of paint.  Love the subtle filtering of colors and strokes that emerge the longer you look.  I only used watercolor paint I had on hand and applied the paint using a few pieces of sponge I cut off my kitchen sponge.
