My new series of flower paintings began as an experiment, overpainting some older work that I was not happy with. Since the original paintings were not dear to me, I was embolden to try a variety of techniques to create something new. To further break the direction of the original paintings, I tore the paintings in half and changed the orientation from vertical to horizon. Adding a touch of gold to some of the petals added a dash of drama to complete these paintings. For more details on the painting of these experimental works, visit: Poppies by Moonlight and Spring Experiments.
Taking fresh, white paper I built on knowledge gained from these experiments and pushed the envelope even more. With saturated color, drips, blends, splatters, stamps, and bold strokes, these paintings are filled with joy and playfulness. They can be seen at the Redstone Art Gallery, 173 Redstone Blvd, Redstone, CO. The Gallery is open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Stephanie and Michael, the gallery owners can be reached at 970-963-3790. These paintings from my new series and more can be seen at the Redstone Art Gallery. Plan a trip to Redstone, visit the gallery, have lunch at the Inn, and then take the Redstone Castle tour at 1:30.
