"Swept Away"

6 x 8"
oil on panel
sold


Like many a Rembrandt painting,  A Girl With a Broom, painted in 1651, is one of the most-copied or faked paintings of all times.  In fact, the fakes have been produced since the mid-1700's.  Numerous people through the years have claimed they have the original, but alas, the original hangs in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

"Morning Joe"

9 x 12"
oil on panel


Fresh off the easel, a woman viewing, and seemingly longing for her younger days and a cup of joe, Richard Diebenkorn's Coffee in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

My mom was a painter.  She favored artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani and especially Diebenkorn - she had dozens of his paintings' images pinned on the wall as her inspiration.  She leaned more towards Diebenkorn's figurative works that commonly blended with abstraction.  That was my mom's signature style with still lifes and figurative paintings.  

Me, I love everything Diebenkorn painted.  His early Abstract Expressionism works, his figurative pieces done in the mid-50's and his return to Abstraction in the mid-60's with works such as his Ocean Park series. Most of all, it's color that draws me to Diebenkorn, no matter the style.
