Study In Color (Abstract)

I just love the way gouache looks. Flat. I worked on the two pieces in the last few nights. I just let them come out of no where.  After seeing the artist Jukyja Dolly when being on search on the internet machine I was inspired. Check the bottom of this post to go to a youtube and of course look at images under her name. I thought I was finished with narrative but story telling is important. It hard to hold me to one voice. pinkislland_gouache_pap_12x9web Color Flow  Gouache on Paper  12×9colorflow_gouache_pap_12x9webColor Flow  Gouache on Paper  12×9

HOUSE COAT – TO ROB

ROBE/HOUSE COAT.

A robe is a loose-fitting outer garment. A robe is distinguished from a cape or cloak by the fact that it usually has sleeves. The English word robe derives from Middle English robe (“garment”), borrowed from Old French robe (“booty, spoils”), itself taken from the Frankish word *rouba (“spoils, things stolen, clothes”), and is related to the word rob. FROM WIKIPEDIA

SO THIS IS WHY SO MANY HOUSE COATS ARE TAKEN FROM HOTELS!

The Harbor

This piece is another shape piece done with oil and cold wax. The Harbor in on panel which is 2 inches in depth. The color has been grayed down to create a subtle feel. When I lived in Carpinteria my close friend Wendy Varnels would take me out sailing from the Santa Barbara Harbor. We would enjoyed each others company and let the captain do all the work. But there were time we would pitch in and help, but mostly just stayed out of his way. Enjoy

Shapes In Abstract Painting

These are different pieces, shapes in more neutral tones. The image evolves as I construct and deconstruct.  These pieces are oil,wax,and ash on panel. The ash comes from my wood burning stove which I use all winter for heat. Enjoy the work.

This Last Month In Abstract

I’v been working this last month on abstract pieces. Mostly oil and wax. This is a cold wax medium which is mixed into the oil paint. It leaves the surface matt which is a very nice surface. Hope you enjoy the pieces.The ones I have included in this post are all on paper.
