"Magnanimous Pour"

This painting represents a bit of a departure for me. Basically I set out to chase color and energy in the tradition of the New New Painters. This relatively small piece measures 24" X 24" X 2.5" . Acrylic on Sanded Birch panel. This is most likely the last painting I will finish before I "roll up the tent" for the summer and head north to my studio in New York.

"Small Odd Shapes"

Each year the resident artists at Gallery on First in Sanford put together an exhibition we call 100 for $100. A collection of works priced at $100.00 or less. Some artists use this as an annual garage sale and mark down older or less successful work. A chance to clean out the studio. Debe and I do not take that approach. While it is difficult to do work in this price range, we always come up with a series of new work made specifically for this two day show. In my case, I experiment with ideas that I may want to try on a larger scale. It allows me a chance to work through both aesthetic and technical issues on a small scale. The pieces pictured above are examples of my series "Small Odd Shapes" made for the 2017 show. Inspired by the work of post-minimalist Richard Tuttle and the large scale shaped canvases of Kenneth Noland, Susan Roth and Graham Peacock. I have long admired the work of these artists, but have yet made an attempt at large scale shaped work. These miniature works ( 15" X 5"ish X 1") are mixed media on wood.
