NOODLE DOODLE 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas board

This is an experiment with acrylics on a canvas board made for watercolor or watermedia, it's a finer surface with interesting properties. I find i can't scan the results at all and have to photograph them to get accurate color. I am still in the southwestern color mode.


 SOLD from my Ebay store.

New acrylic 12 x 16 canvas: SANTA FE

Here is the first painting i have completed in almost a week... there have been many steps in leaving a gallery that ended its collective format and returning to independent Ebay sales.


I like the balance between order and chaos in this piece. I have spent a good deal of time in New Mexico which is truly a land of enchantment. The colors and tone take me back to Santa Fe and Taos. This should go up for sale on my Ebay Store this week.


Here is a recent abstract in a series that i find very enriching. Making one of these is a real adventure in which the Creative shows the way if one can listen. I am always surprised by the final result.


This is a 9 x 12 inch Acrylic and Oil Painting on Canson Montval 185 lb Acrylic paper. The images do sometimes suggest meteors in space, and, of course, i am playing with the term "Mixed Media". These are moody suggestive realms into which i can lose myself.  This is listed currently in My Ebay Store.


Welcome to my new blog. Since art is the topic, let me begin right away with a new painting, the most recent cityscape that i have done in an ongoing series. I have been exploring skylines as geometry and color, but this is the first painting done from ground level.


This is an acrylic and oil painting on a 12 x 16 inch stretched canvas with UV protective gel. I used micaceous iron oxide to create the asphalt-like texture on the roadway. The moon is painted in luminescent white which shifts as one moves. I will list this painting for auction in my store on eBay, later today.
