A Productive Two Weeks

July 31, 2014

I have been working nonstop on new work for Michael Murphy Gallery in Tampa.

Here are the first paintings for the gallery, previously shown in progress. It’s a little hard to tell the paintings from the table cover, wouldn’t you agree?

New Work July 2014

And here are the finished pieces in a grouping. I feel good about these, and have just finished another series of them, which I’ll show in subsequent posts. Each of these panels is 8 inches square and 2 inches deep.

      Thanks, Pat. I’d love to see them again in person, but probably won’t. But it’s not all bad. I try to photograph every single one as well as possible so I can remember them. They help me with the direction of my work.

    I love this size! Many of my daily collages are about the same…matted they are 14″ x 14″. It is a nice format for the “essence” of a piece. These are lovely, thanks for sharing!

      Cindy, I absolutely love small works, no matter the substrate. On paper they are wonderful with plenty of border.

    I love your work! Would be great to see them in person to really get the full effect, but I can clearly see you’re a very talented abstract artist.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
