Older Art Page – Acrylic on Canvas

In the fall of 2014 I started painting with acrylics. As with spray paint, it was all (and still is) experimental. My first project was exciting – painting with Q-tips, trying to render the close up effects of pixelation. I later discovered that it had been done before (of course) and was more commonly known as Pointillism.

008-1

Helena Bonham Carter – I didn’t quite get her as an adult.

Afterwards, I moved into straight brushwork, alternating between any subject that met my fancy, whether it be people, animals or landscapes.

017

Winters Day – I was going for perspective in this.

088

Asleep in the Meadow – I tend to use a lot of metallic paint in my work.

My first cat painting.

148

Sort of pointillism – this is white paint on black canvas. The subject is Audrey Hepburn.

022

Nobility Among the Animals – an attempt to capture the unusually beautiful.

7180

Le Tigre.

7650

The Condor.

7517

Snow Leopard.

7525

My second cat – I’m infatuated with their eyes.

7959

So if you unfocus your eyes, you’ll get why I entitled this “Natures Bosom”

7995

Girl in the Window.

I love this painting and so do over a thousand others (thank you!). Someone else loved it more, so I gave it to her.

033

The Garden – This was the first attempt at using a background matte to offset the brighter colors on top.

The latest work I did for a friend. As I told him, I never said I was a realist….

044-1

A special woman. Acrylic on Canvas. I really like working with black canvas.

The next three are exploratory pieces:

I’m a fan of Vermeer and Cezzane, so this was a fusion of the two.

I channeled the work of Caspar Friedrich for this piece.

Here, we have a mix of Decalcomania, Impasto and my own method of creating forests.

035

Untitled. I incorporated my seeming habit of painting women and landscapes, along with a little rain. The

goal was a woman looking up in wonder at a storm. Others have expressed a myriad of opinions regarding

its meaning.

A brief foray into abstract art. The focus, beauty in the mundane – this case the beaten, worn tabletop at the Pour House in Gaithersburg, MD.

Woman at (a) Table. I was impressed with the source image lighting and contrast. I’d found it on the Getty site, and so I purchased a license to incorporate it into my work. The results look nothing alike, but that is part of my charm.
