Crystal Blue

crystal blue 18 x 24 inches acrylic on canvas 2005

This painting is from 2005. I was really into abstract expressionism. I am once again returning to non objective subjects. What I really enjoy is the invention of pure abstraction. I love the intellectual ephemeral quality of abstract paintings. The older I get, the more that I respect and admire the artists who do abstract work.

Reclining Nude 1984

Reclining Nude oil on canvas 1984 24 x38 inches
This is an very old painting that I did in 1984. As you can see, even way back then, I was developing my style with the dark outline. I remember painting this in my Houston Texas fresh out of college. I have no idea where this painting is today.

This was done while I was a college student in the early 1980s. The title comes from a popular Pink Floyd album at the time.
