Just Breathe!

I find sometimes that when intensely painting I forget to breathe! This happens most often trying to get just the perfect line along the edge of a canvas. Even my heartbeat moves my hand just enough to wiggle the brush...

Guess that means my artwork takes the breath away and makes the heart skip a beat!? Happy Arting!  ;D

On The Bench - Black & White

I think every Artist loves a challenge!? Most of my work involves reds...purples...blues ...bright colors. So imagine my horror when faced with the task of creating black and white paintings to submit to the Broward Art Guild's Black & White show in 2013. Well, in response I surprised myself and created "The Collective" series.

Fast forward and I have seen lately that black backgrounds have become very popular. I have even been requested by the Pebeo paint folks to create more work on black backgrounds! Here, then, are some of the artworks I created in my studio last week. Enjoy!

And, here is my "attempt" to keep-it-simple with Black and Pearl resins on black canvas with a splash of Pebeo Fantasy Prisme. The diptych will be available for purchase soon. :D
