Before, during, and after

In order:

  • Three small paintings that I completed just prior to my January trip to Florida;
  • Three large canvases I began before Florida, completed afterward;
  • Six paintings I started in Florida and finished in Hatfield; and
  • One hybrid painting: I turned a canvas begun months ago that was going nowhere from vertical to horizontal, splashed paint over its rough edges, and a vision of Florida appeared.

One thought on “Coming Soon to a Gallery Near You

  1. OK, Abstract 18 floats. That is pretty amazing, to me anyway. I don’t think I’ve seen this in previous paintings. It feels like there is all kinds of space underneath the blue swath on the right. And underneath the left blue swath as well, now that I’ve returned to the painting and looked at it at least ten times, trying to figure out how you did that. I kind of have an idea . . . .
