Sunflowers

This is a fun painting. The funky sunflowers, the container and the green bench give an  American Folk Art look with bright colors.  As with most of my work, the tinting helps brighten the light areas and enhance the shadows in this slightly primitive style original artwork.  When framed in a dark wood with a little gold trim and a white matte, the colors seem to brighten even more.

American Barns

The most striking thing about this Contemporary American Folk Art piece are the strong, primitive shapes. The prominent, odd shape of the house on the upper right, the trees and the stark lines of the barns and roads give it character.  It conjures up the patriotism of a simpler time in American history. The bold colors work well with the strong lines of the primitive shapes.

Crimson Fields

This large country folk art painting of a country farm has a strong, rough, yet pastel look to it.  The painting was done with acrylics,  then worked over with oil pastels to give it this effect.  The prints show the rough texture with the lines of oil going across the painting in different directions which give it a peaceful, yet lively look.

Puzzle 3

This is a good example of different techniques combined in one abstract painting.  The canvas was prepared with a strong layer of gesso.  The end of a brush and other blunt tools were used to create a gold and green pattern on the first surface.  Next, colors covered the gesso and a tint was laid over the different colors.  There is a lot of brush work and dripping and splashing, Jackson Pollack style, on this painting.  After drying, I used more tinting and brush work, and then repeated the same process again with different bright colors and tints.  The final layer involved more brush work and dripping and splashing some bright white and dark blacks, reds and bright yellow for highlighting.  Look closely and you can see the patterns underneath everything in the gesso.

Flora

 

This is an expressionism style painting of bright yellow flowers on a pale pink background; a moody painting with lots of tints in a variety colors.   There is an effort to keep the subject undefined, lost, almost totally abstract.   When viewing the flowers you can see they are lacking in any definition. To create this effect, a soft repaint and tinting is needed with many layers of work.  I used shadows and light to help the strong golds and greens push to the center,  giving the flowers the most attention in this abstract painting.

After The Rain

This animated drip art painting is a good size and it is heavy with gesso and many colors of paint.  In creating this type of lively abstract image, I use more paint because on some of the layers I almost cover the complete canvas with the next color, only showing little bits of the color before it. As I get closer to the top layer I use a little less paint to show more of the last layer.  I made the movement circle, like an inner border on the blue and gray background.  Another field of yellows and oranges inside the circle required me use more control over the action of the painting. I worked a little at a time, letting it dry and then working again with tints and layers of vibrant white, black and green.
