New painting for the new year

Yesterday I finished my newest painting. A development in color for me. This wonderful meeting of Hansa Yellow and Green Gold on this textural surface. Creates some stunning transparencies that glow within the surface.

"01-27-2009 (Dreams of Spring)" 18" X 10" A/WF/C

I decided on the subtitle "Dreams of Spring" as it's got around 3 to 4 inches of snow outside right now. Slowing everything in the town to a snails pace. Good for contemplating painting, but not if you've got a bunch of things to do. Such as promoting my show with the WAC which is running till February 7th.

I was a bit on the weary side when beginning this final stage of painting. As I haven't really meshed with transparent colors much. As I always thought it created a bit too much of a monochrome surface, but as it was drying, I realized that these colors are really creating a wonderful depth within the surface of the painting. That makes me wanna develop this series of working with more transparent colors further.

Here are a few large files of the details of this painting.

Thanks for viewing.

  2. Well thank you very much Cioara. Hope life is well in Romania.

  3. It could be like your own private sun on the wall Jeff. Simple, yet not simple at all -I am usually not a fan of the color yellow unless used wisely. Strangely enough, I think I like this painting! My compliments.

  4. Yeah it really is like a little private sun. Thanks bro. Perhaps one day I can get a nice show in Amsterdam so that you can come to the opening.
