Introducing More New Works

Another insanely busy week! Here are pics of some recent works for your enjoyment:

Titled Sediment, this 12x36" painting is acrylic on a gallery wrapped 1 1/2 inch deep canvas. I've used a limited palette of colors and a variety of special techniques to suggest a dreamy, "floating downward" movement.

You can't see them in this photo but the dark band across the bottom also contains some interesting patterns.

This painting can be hung vertically or horizontally. It would look terrific on a narrow wall! Hung horizontally, it can be reversed directionally by changing the location of the hanging hardware on the back.

Sediment is now available for purchase through 2Rules Fine Art Gallery, 85 Church St., Marietta Ga 30060. The gallery may be contacted by phone at (404)355-6897, by email at, or through its website.

The second painting, shown below, is Winter Lights, acrylic on a 24 x 24" gallery wrapped, 1 1/2 inch deep canvas.

This painting features a very textural, tactile surface.

Something amazing happens to this painting when it's illuminated by a picture light or gallery style lighting. The silvery area at the bottom and the stars emit a beautiful soft glow! The effect is what you'd see while gazing at a frozen lake under the light of a full moon.

I did not use any gimmicky fluorescent paints to achieve this effect. In fact, I didn't discover it until I went to hang the finished painting on the gallery wall in my studio, which is lighted with halogens. This painting is lovely without any special illumination, but my jaw dropped when I saw it under the gallery lights. I also discovered that its appearance can be altered dramatically by dimming the light to varying degrees.

Have a good weekend!
