Three new 'Flat Paintings'

For quite some time now. I have been making what I call 'swatch paintings'. These are small versions of the larger paintings just on unstretched canvas that I have fully painted. This past week I decided to step it up a notch or three and cut me up three rectangles of canvas. Each one roughly 16" X 10", so it makes it more like an actual stretched canvas painting. I was originally thinking I could just nail them into the wall at the corners, but then I put them on some foam board and found that I liked the idea. I am now waiting till I return from my NY trip where I will have the three paintings framed with nice wooden frames and put under acrylic glass. Click on the images for larger viewing.





  1. Great stuff, really like the last one. always improving mate.

  2. Nice to see change in the texture application. Is this a conscious application or still random? In any event, the texture takes on representation, as that of hanging leaves on branches. Like to see this go farther with a motif matching color palette.
