New work for the New Year








I started these three paintings in the summer.  I drove up to the Herald Building and set up three boards on a picnic table over looking Memorial Drive.  I sketched and painted what I saw. The paintings were then up in my studio for the next few months.  I kept examining them knowing they were not completed but not yet sure how they wanted to be finished.  I wait for the painting to inspire its own ending.

Finally a few days ago it called out for the ink.  I added a loser layer of paint and scraped away paint for line work.  I think the final peice is expressive and has a vibrant energy.  These pieces will be going up in City Hall.  I will give you the details once they are up.












These paintings are inspired by the beauful dying wildflowers outside of my Artpoint studio. I used my burning tool to draw the flowers and then added the ink to express the beautiful randomness of wildflowers.  These paintings were created on recycled cupboard doors and are a well crafted surface to work on.  These paintings will be going up in a bakery in Inglewood.  I will give you the details as soon as they are up.
