Two paintings, Umbra (left) and Nocturne at One (right) just sold! This is especially significant since they sold during this very difficult time that we are all experiencing.

Harmony in Green (30" x 10") is not just a "green" painting. Green is pervasive, and balances other colors. Sections of Harmony In Green shimmer like beetle shells. 

Even though Harmony in Green isseen here vertically, the painting can also be seen horizontally.  My paintings generally, can be seen as slices of much larger or infinite spaces, so viewing them in any direction should be pleasing.

I am now working on a painting, Harmony in Green, tackling a new size 10 x 30 inches. The palette-triangles began with vertical lines.  Layers of color were added so that the lines appear and disappear.  As I create this painting, even though the vertical thrust may not always be obvious, the palette-triangles are always placed so that the underlying lines are always vertical.

This painting now has a title: Nocturne with White (20" x 20"). 

Here, as with the previous painting, Nocturne at One, I am experimenting with an under-painting of color and line, and an opaque over-painting. The over-painting takes on linear movement, while the under-painting emerges and creates its own layer of movement. At times, layers merge.

Started a "white" painting (20" x 20") the beginning of April. Should be completed by end of the month so it can be included in Andra Norris Gallery's show Air, 8 June - 20 July.

Experimenting with under-layers of water color and color pencil, and a top layer of soft pastel. Even though the pastel is opaque, the under-layers emerge. All creating a sense of movement.

This is an image of Nocturne at One 

taken around mid-January. If you go to the previous post you will be able to see how the painting has progressed.

The flow of each painting is somewhat determined by where the painting is begun. Here I started at the center and am working out . The palette-triangles for Nocturne at One are non-directional, so this too will influence the directional flow of the painting.

Nocturne at One (30" x 30") is an intense cobalt blue.  I began the painting at the center. From there, the painting will continue to radiate outward.
