One more from last night. Hmmm. I did four of these yesterday, and I'm just not sure about any of them. Not sure yet, anyway. :|

Another Mini Painting from Last Night

Here's another, a bit tamer than the last one.

The Non-Conformist

Here’s last night’s little painting. This one could be called “The Non-Conformist,” as I used just 3 hues of red + white to make this, but as you can see, a little blue snuck itself into one square.

 

I’m on Some Sort of a Roll!

Less flowy than the large painting I finished last night(!), I’m really grooving on these little color studies in oil. I did a couple last night; they are probably a little stiff, but there will be many…

I like Chinatown. It’s had an influence on my life! The colors of the signage really affected me early on. This goes back to the old Lower East side too where you’d see reds, yellows and blues and just garish raucous colors really compressed together. The whole area is compressed and my studio is small so it’s compressed too. The compression in my work comes at least partially out of that.
