So exciting that Chroma with Black Veil sold!

The veil was in reference to my feelings about where our country is at the moment. That is about as political as my paintings ever get.  

Otherwise, it is all about color, movement, and process.

In the horizontal format, Chroma with Black Veil reads very differently than when viewing it in the square format.  A narrative is created when viewingChroma with Black Veil horizontally.

Chroma with Black Veil is a painting in 4 panels, and can be viewed, as seen here, or in a horizontal format.

Viewed as a square the image is read at once. Viewed in a horizontal format, the image is read as a narrative.  

I am extremely delighted that Chroma with Black Veil will be shown at the opening of the new Andra Norris Gallery, Burlingame, California, beginning June 1st. 

If interested in any of my paintings, please contact the Andra Norris Gallery.

Both Chroma. Gray. and Chroma. Cool Blue. just sold! It is very gratifying to see the two paintings set in a space seemingly designed just for them.

Chroma with Black Veil (in 4 parts) can be arranged either as a square (as seen here) or as an horizontal.

The use of a lamp black layer or veil, covers some color, while at the same time intensifies and unites.

I was further experimenting with vertical lines, and came to see the vertical lines in Chroma. Cool Blue. as "ghost lines." Lines that existed in the palette-triangles then coalesced. Now these lines seem to  float over or through the surface of the painting.

Chroma. Blue. Gray. is now titled Chroma. Cool Blue. As I continued working on this painting it was no longer blue gray, but cool blue. The vertical lines are making interesting ghostly striations.

Chroma. Gray. Blue. continues to progress.

As a painting develops, there always comes a point where additional palette-triangles need to be made.  That point is reached when I find there are no more existing palette-triangles that fit the section of the painting that is being worked on.  There are always unused palette-triangles that can be used in different parts of the same painting, or can be saved for another painting.

I think of Chroma. Gray. Blue. as a companion to the previous painting Chroma Gray. I am continuing to explore horizontal and vertical lines.  

In both paintings, colors run horizontally, and graphite "drawn" lines run vertically. In Chroma Gray vertical lines are quite delicate, almost like woven fabric, here the vertical lines are bolder. Assembling these paintings, and especially Chroma. Gray. Blue. is complex--horizontal color lines and vertical graphite lines are placed at the same time, being that these qualities are inherent in the palette-triangles. Once the triangles are placed and affixed, no new color or lines are added to the painting.

Chroma Gray is a serene contemplation. I experimented with the construction of drawn lines and painted color-loaded lines. 

Chroma Gray can now be seen at Gallerie Citi, Burlingame, CA.
