Lately I have been working on 11x17 inch abstract paintings and collages. This size paper opens up how I see what I am putting down composition-wise, almost as if zooming in on what would be a larger piece. It's a nice alternative to the 19x24s that make up a large majority of my work.
I have also been painting on 40x40 inch stretched canvases since last post. These are painted in acrylic and oil with dots and repetitive marks that create a pattern/rhythm filling the surface with color. I had stopped working on canvas, and particularly stretched canvas, because I do not like the texture and would rather not mess with gesso, etc.
I also finished working on an assemblage started months ago on wood. These warmer days of summer have me getting things in order on my website as well, and I am now choosing a few of the 11x17 pieces to offer here.
Below are images of some of the above mentioned pieces.
