8 Bit Duck

Additional Information

Ate Carrots & 7 UFOs

Additional Information

 

"Ate Carrots & 7 UFOs"  was painted in July of 2018 and was inspired by vegetables and spaceships I suppose :-) 

  

Originally, it was going to feature the gold "sea" below with 2 rows of 9 carrots above the gold and simply be called "18 Carrots."  Once the canvas was getting filled up, I decided to reduce it by 10 carrots and on a whim, decided to add 7 UFOs!

This is one of my personal favorites.

Pizzazz

Additional Information

 

"Pizzazz" was an exploration into vibrant colors (putting it mildly :-)

The original idea started as a black background (with something painted on top of that) and I started squiggling the black paint you see here ... and this squiggly "design" prompted me to completely change direction (and thus, this painting).

The Lincoln Bedroom

 

"The Lincoln  Bedroom" was one of my very first paintings and helped set the stage for what ended up being my colorful childlike style of painting.

"Equals"

I needed to come up with a few love themed paintings for the Valentine's Day inspired, "Matters of the Art" show in North Dallas.  The original idea for this was going to be what you see here with the word answer on the bottom ("Love is the Answer") and then it was getting late, I was gettin' tired and realized that if I didn't make it so obvious, the painting would potentially be better.  Thus, the simple yellow =.


This is acrylic on canvas, is 24" x 18" and has been SOLD.

"Zhivago"

This is my 1st painting completed in 2018.  Title of the painting is pretty much non-sequitur but it just felt right.


As it turns out, according to Wikipedia, the plot of Dr. Zhivago, the famous novel, is VERY complex, convoluted and many faceted so… my painting and it's title sort of ended up making sense :-)


This is acrylic on canvas - 24" X 18" and has been SOLD.
