Who Do You Think You Are? New work

Greetings Art Collectors and Friends
Here is my newest painting that I am quite thrilled to be unveiling today.  It is 24x36 which is much larger than I usually work in.  Certainly a statement piece of sorts.  I have always loved Picasso and Matisse and use them as my inspiration.  Here I feel that I've created the best of both worlds.  The brush strokes, shading and vibrance of color are not quite  captured in a photo. 
Thanks for looking and enjoy the Holiday season !

What I'm working on

Going big!  This is a 24x36 canvas I started working on.  I have had this large canvas (not wood)  taking up space in my studio since the summer.  The timing just wasn't right until now.  This is an expressive more abstract piece that I cannot wait to work on each day!

What I'm working on......

I'll be wrapping up a fun smaller piece tomorrow.  I've been gearing up for the holiday season  and finalizing some licensing images which will hopefully be in stores after the first of the year if not sooner! I guess the cold weather is here now.  I remember complaining about the heat and humidity and now I'm too cold in my studio 100 year old house is mighty drafty these days.

Part Of The Arrangment II~ New painting .

Completed on November 2, 2017 .  My son Max, who is an amazing portrait painter, gave me some new botanical brushes for my birthday from England that are pretty incredible to use. The application process was wonderful and made a huge difference for me.  This painting is 16x20 I also tried out some new slow drying acrylics that were incredible to work with.  Quality is so rich and colors quite vibrant I am happy to have stumbled upon them.  
Our power was off for almost three days earlier in the week!  I am so grateful to be back to work in my studio and have some light and heat!  
Thanks for looking.
