Geometrics

From the Film Strip Series, here is the album “Geometrics”, painted in homage to Mondrian, Miro, Agam and the Bauhaus Movement. The medium is acrylic paint applied by roller, sponge brush and forks on stretched canvas.  The 16″ x 16″ x 0.66″ pieces are available at $225 each including shipping within the USA.  These are bright and yet sophisticated. For hanging I’ve been pairing them or using them as focal points for smaller wall areas. And of course, I enjoy seeing them rotated for variety in my viewing. When you see the originals, they are more robust than as shown in these photos. You do not need to frame these, however they would look smashing in black frames.

Creating a Tribute Painting

“Balboa Park San Diego Zoo” for the Panamanian Centennial Celebration, 2015.

This diptych is on two 36″ x 60″ canvas panels and is currently available for sale as a set for $9,750 + shipping.

I wanted to create a work worthy of tribute to the 2015 Balboa Park Centennial. The beauty of this piece is in its flexibility to form 16 similar but different paintings: four versions of the paintings are 3 ft high x 10 ft long; four diptychs are 10 ft high x 3′ wide; fours pairs are 6 ft high x 5 ft wide, and; four  are 5 ft high x 6 ft long.

Watch this video on how that works so wonderfully to add value for the beholder.

“Balboa Park San Diego Zoo” for the Panamanian Centennial Celebration, 2015.

With all the move and World Art Games [WAG ] admin activities, I finally got to painting this weekend. It’s been 3 months and the pent up energy came to life on the canvas easily and quickly. This diptych is on two 36″ x 60″ canvas panels.

I wanted to create a work worthy of tribute to the 2015 Balboa Park Centennial.

Watch for our forthcoming video on how that works so wonderfully to add value for the beholder.

I am thrilled with the experiment and the results. And, I just loved the freedom of creating it in my new indoor/ outdoor studio! Having fun out of Las Vegas is an understatement.

Today’s feature I call “MUSICAL ART PIECES – LEAD SHEET”.  Have fun with this as you find discoveries that seem to evolve. And of course, the painting may be displayed in any one of four positions, vertically and horizontally. I would appreciate your thoughts and feed back as to this progression of my art style.
