Untitled 4


The rain has not abated. Isn't anyone out there doing that anti-rain dance? Let's see, what kind of an ark do you think I can build in my studio out of paintbrushes and canvas?

I'm beginning to get more intuitive with my color in these abstracts--not giving any conscious thought at all to the color wheel during the often fast-and-furious painting process--and I'm really liking the result.

I like the bits of reds/oranges showing through in the background. I had to laugh when I read your blog. It sounds just like mine!

I love these new abstracts. The layers in them remind me of Philip Guston's work. Nice.

The warm colors and lively brushstrokes really draw in the viewer. Love it!

Hey, no complaints about this blessed rain! Remember the previous 10-year drought; nothing to paint but rocks. Glorious flowers now thrive all around us; irises as high as an elephant's eye and cornflowers bluer than the true blue sky.

I really like this. Wonderful colors, from the subdued to the intense, and great textures, too.
