This photo was taken through instagram with an earlybird filter. I have just always love that filter, to me it looks like an old 70’s polaroid photo. The story behind the land grabber’s house, the man who owned this house fenced in an additional 4 acres which belonged to the state of New Mexico and put a new mobile home on it. He was found out and lost everything. Nice try. When working on the panel below the photo it was to be an abstract. From my poor dwindling memory came land grabber’s house. Some thing just want to be. When do you know that a painting is finished? Best stop before.

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. Color Flow Gouache on Paper 12×9Color Flow Gouache on Paper 12×9

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.

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

I have been studying Richard Diebenkorn in New Mexico. I believe if you study other artist it can only help you in your search for expression.
