A large format piece (6′ x 1′).  Was inspired to go big on this one, lol!  I love the interplay of colors and line in this one.  For a first try at large format I wasn’t too disappointed.  I have carpeted floors and didn’t have a flat space big enough to paint this on so I had to take one of my closet doors off the track and tape the piece to the back so any paint missing the mark wouldn’t show from the front side.  I have to say this was incredibly fun and challenging!

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.

Grid (2015)

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.
