The painting is more about color, warm and cool. It looks like a
board game without the directions

Block Buster
























Block Buster is the second painting in this series. The chroma
and values are a step or two in comparison with Mystic Morning
I made it more graphic with the tease of letters and numbers.

Mystic Morning



This work is a little different than most paintings I have done. The painting is 36"x36" with a cradle board. I worked 3 straight days. I drew the shapes and made some changes during the painting.

Number 9



I am always working on smaller works in-between  the larger paintings. This gives me an opportunity to experiment. Number 9 has an underpainting of many colors. The last step was to use a palette knife to spread the paint mix of oil paint and cold wax
