12x16" oil on canvas, SOLD
I painted this piece during the week I took off from my computer. It was an experiment in color and texture. And even subject matter. Although it’s obviously still my wacky people, I was having a go at painting cityscapes. In fact, my friend Alison called these guys “Building Boys”. Blame it on Paul Balmer, a fabulous artist whose work I find awe-inspiring. Although I’m not much of a cityscape painter, (I struggle with drawing perspective), I am excited by the shapes and colors in this piece. In fact, I have already started my annual painting of the Three Wise Men, aka: The Three Wise Guys influenced by the lessons learned from making this painting. See how that works?
