Tuesday, February 21, 2023

 It's been a while since I last posted but who's keeping time let alone track- only me. Most recent work that moves across different substrates and mediums. Let's jump right!.

24"x36" canvas that has a horrible work underneath it that was mostly black India ink which was then covered with gesso giving it that great raw gray background with basic and thick acrylics on top. 
"Block Party."

No photo could ever do justice to this work but it's what I got. 53"x60" Arches 300 lb watercolor paper that also has a dreadful work underneath. I attempted to do big gestural work and it failed. So, out comes the gesso. Some of the previous work bled through giving it some architectural lines which I then  expanded on with dripping India ink of various colors and then went small with gold acrylic and oil crayons. I think this is my best piece.

"Is It Noisy In Here, Or Is It Just Me? (What's The Cat Doing In The Painting?)"

Easel work on 22"x30" Arches watercolor paper with charcoal and pastels. 
"In Germany, After The War."

24"x36" canvas with multiple layers (veils) of diluted black India ink and gold acrylic and undiluted black India ink on top and oil crayons. "Couleurs Primaries."

And as Nina Simone once said at one of her last concerts, "Go home, it's all I got!"
