22X30, OIL ON PAPER  Still life with Sculpture head.  

Sunday, July 8, 2012

This has become one of my favorite plein air paintings of the Ajo, AZ., Sonoran Desert Series.  Paintings I did from 2007 - 2008.  This is an oil,  20x24.  My paintings are exemplified by the spontaneous brush work.  You see the entire process and there is very little going over anything....this gives it a performance quality and is very musical, in that, it has rhythm as well as harmonies in the composition.  It is both personal and universal.

This is a composition I created a while back.  It is 30x36 inches. oil on wood panel.  I use luan doorskins as an inexpensive painting surface.   The painting itself is an homage to the tradition of modernism.  It features a still life of Van Gogh with a rendition of his self portrait, along with a portrait of Che, and on the right, the m aster I studied with, Antonio Salemme 1892-1995.  I titled it Fathers, Sons, and Brothers.
