8x10" acrylic on Masonite
Okay... I'm back painting. I saw some 60's style art a few days ago and it reminded me that I really enjoyed painting in a more contemporary style. I used to paint a lot of pots and other vessels in this more fun style. Some of it borrowed from Michele Russo's way of painting...a bit primative and stick-like with lots of angles, and a little from my friend Carol Riley's style ( I got to water her greenhouse and garden last week while she was in France and Forence). Carol always tips and tilts her subjects giving some animation to the piece. She's a great colorist and all of her pieces make people happy.
