New Abstract Work Listed

22 Jun

“Jungle Cat 2” is my latest abstract work. It’s acrylic on birch wood cradle, meant to be hung without a frame as all the sides are painted in copper metallic paint. I couldn’t accurately capture the true interplay of color and texture, due to the use of a lot of shiny gold and copper metallic paint. It’s a lot richer in real life. Here’s the link to the listing at Etsy.

“Encroaching Autumn” is my latest Abstract Expressionist work, listed at my Etsy shop. It’s acrylic on Ampersand panel (Masonite). It’s got a lot of accents in metallic copper and gold, so in some lights it’s “very shiny, very shiny” as Rainman would say.

At 18″ x 36″, it’s pretty large, and I’d like to find a buyer because it’s taking up a lot of space in my little house. Listing is here.

Change of Direction

7 Jun

I’ve removed a lot of old work from sale because it wasn’t consistent with my new move into the mid-century modern style of art. If you are browsing through my archives and find a link to a piece of art that’s no longer listed, my apologies!

Addendum: Check out this wonderful blog devoted to all things Mid-Century Modern. It’s really inspiring on an artistic basis for me to look at this stuff. I’m old enough to remember the Kennedy-Johnson Space Age era, although I was just a tot.

Some work that has been sitting around or (stuck on my walls) for so long, I almost forgot they existed:
