SPRING BOUQUETS


SPRING BOUQUET

SPRING BOUQUET 2
8x8
Oil on Panel

These paintings were accepted into Dutch Gallery's "Spring Reflections", their spring juried show.  The second painting was abstracted from the first one and although I enjoyed painting both of them I have to say the abstract was more fun.  The show runs from May14 to July 16.  If you are in the Dallas area stop in and see some great art.

Back to mugshots!  This one popped out because of his hair.  Dreadlocks are fun to paint.

ASPARAGUS

6x6
Oil & Wax on Panel

This is a continuation of my Food Dance series.  With Spring here, I'm always reminded of how good asparagus is to add to a menu.  It tastes delicious and is beautiful with its many shades of green.

Roasted Asparagus

Place asparagus, that has been drizzled with olive oil, in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  

It's healthy, tastes good and so easy to prepare.

FIGURE 3

12x6
Oil on Panel

I am enjoying this little study of abstraction and will continue.  I'm learning and having fun.  For those who might enjoy exploring the figure in the abstract David Shevlino has a download that is helpful and very interesting to watch.

FIGURE 2

Oil on Panel
This is my first attempt at abstracting the figure.  I realize that I have no idea what I am doing so I am going to continue painting with hopes that eventually it will click.

FIGURE 1

12x6
Oil on Panel

I've been working on painting the figure.  My first attempt is simply the figure painted straight forward. This is the first painting in this process.  My goal is to abstract the figure with lost edges, which is not as easy as it sounds. I'm looking forward to exploring the back and forth that takes place at the easel as the figure loses some of its definition.  My next painting will be this same composition with the figure abstracted.
