"Easy Riders"

6 x 6"

sold

Folks - I've begun working on a collection of paintings, about twenty, for a solo show that opens March 13th at the Morris & Whiteside Gallery. The tough part is, they won't be revealed until the date nears - I'm already bursting with anticipation. Meanwhile, my moments of Zen will come at the end of the day when I've finished a piece and let loose on a smaller panel. It gives me the chance to try out some ideas and play with the color combinations - it's very beneficial. And I'll do it as often as possible.

From Savannah, Georgia - tourists enjoying the sights while someone else does the driving.

I just had to come out of lurkersville and tell you what an artistic inspiration you are. I LOVE your style and handling of color! And what a wonderful color combo on this ... tangerine and turquoise (sounds like a great name for a band ... )

You handle that monster project on DSFDF and you continue to paint wonderful gems of art and you STILL can write in whole sentances? wow...

As always I love the way you convey a scene with seemingly so little detail!!
TERRIFIC!
