Abstract Art

It’s Good to be Back in My Right Brain

Too much left brain lately, and I think I’ve done my last new website project for anyone else (pretty please, let it be so!).

My neighborhood website project is mostly done (well, are they ever really done?), so finally I can get back in the studio, finish #’s 1, 4,…

One of My Favorites in the New Series

…so far. Oh, wait, they’re all my favorites. 😉

But I do really like this one quite a bit. It started out horizontal with lots of red and blue and purple, but then I kept painting out what I’d painted in.

Learning to work with acrylic — what a medium!…

More Recent Work

Yikes! The intense focus on building a website for the neighborhood these past 3 weeks has totally interrupted my painting process, and even my posting process! I can’t seem to work in both sides of my brain too much on the same day. So web work negates painting. Must stop…

Change in Direction

Some of you may remember that about a month ago, I mentioned I was starting a new series that represents a slight (or maybe not so slight) change in direction.

I had found with the work I was trying to do that I was attempting to make new strides in…

Early Abstract Landscapes

While I’m working on some new studies that I’m not yet ready to show you, I thought I’d share one of my first abstract landscapes, from 2006, the year I decided to move away from representation.  Not that I have been completely able to stay away from…

Blind Contour Abstraction

It’s true, it’s true — really!  The first in another new series of small paintings/drawings, these shapes were made without looking at the paper, based on images off of streaming TV.  I did look, though, as I colored them in, so idk, is that cheating?  🙂

File This Under “You Gotta Try Stuff” — A Loose Study

Continuing my experiments with imagery: from earlier this year, this is a loose study in acrylic on paper for what may become a larger oil painting.  No real title, so far.  I like it.  🙂

Another Early Experiment from This Year

This was my 5th piece of the year, and I’ve been holding off on sharing it.  I am again combining some imagery from various series of the last few years, this time in watercolor pencil (with water added, of course).  I may try to fix that purple-y bit…

I’m Still Here!

I have been working on some small oil paintings that are in various states of not-quite-doneness, and one 24″ x 24″ oil painting that is coming along quite nicely, but surprisingly, and I have 3 sketches ready to paint as watercolors.

For now, I thought I’d go ahead…

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
