New Work, New Digs

"Muscolo", oil on canvas
"Cushion Spurge", oil on linen
Here's the two latest completed pieces.  "Cushion Spurge" is a ground cover flowering plant in the poinsettia family that I found at the Boothbay Coastal Garden a couple years back.  What appealed to me for the painting were the shadows and shapes combined with all the variations found in the green, yellow, black palette.  On the other hand, "Muscolo" is comprised entirely of different sized and shaped triangles working to "approximate the curve" throughout the image, exploring the triangle's ability to intersect and interact.  Well, I moved uptown and got my own studio on Brunswick's Maine Street in the Lincoln Building, 2nd Floor, across the hall from Connie Lundquist's studio.  The space is roomier, the light (east north east) is great and the sound of traffic and street goings-on works for me.
