31.5" x 41"
Acrylic on wood

This is an older piece that I just re-worked a bit. There was some lemon yellow in it that I wanted to pull back.

Diptych 20"x20"
Acrylic on canvas

Of course it's untitled. Most of my work seems to be untitled. I'm torn when it comes time to name a painting. Should I affect the viewer and their thoughts on what it means to them? Perhaps I read too much into it, and shouldn't think of it again. Don't get me wrong, this isn't something that keeps me up at night, but it is something I struggle with from time to time.

This piece is a complete rework of an earlier piece that I had messed up. Once I began the rework, it was a relatively quick piece... at least it was for me. It's a piece for the upcoming show and it wasn't completely dry when I photographed it. If you click on the photo for a larger photo, you will see a few small milky areas where the gel medium hadn't completely dried.

(round) 17" diameter
Mixed media on wood

Well, finally, a new piece. It has been a long time, and not for lack of effort, I assure you. These round panels have been giving me a hell of a time. I didn't think it would be that different from painting on square or rectangular shapes... boy, was I wrong. I like the end result, and enjoy the challenge of painting in a round space. I like the linear shapes against the round cutout. I guess I was lazy with regards to naming this piece, but there is plenty of time to name it before November's show.

If you're interested in nabbing this piece before my show, drop me an email. Thanks!
