Bagged #2

Oil on board, 6" x 6"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.

Email me for purchase details.

The desktop computer is still in the shop, so I am posting from my wife's laptop. I find it harder to judge color, etc. on the laptop screen, so I'm not certain how true to the original these recent posts are. Of course it is something of a moot point, since no two monitors look the same anyway.

This is a really interesting image and looks like it was fun to paint.

i LOVE these new pieces, don! rich with symbolism and lushly painted! this one looks so very male...
or very fish...
or very comet-like...

love also the action in these three last paintings!

fresh and exciting!! way to go!

Hi Diana--thanks! I'm glad it looks like it was fun to paint, cause actually this one was kind of a pain. It wasn't coming out at all until I did some desperate smearing and smooshing toward the end that seemed to salvage it a bit.

Thanks so much, Martha. It's great to hear your interpretations! Comet-like is what I thought of after I did the first one. The plastic reminds me of flame, or rippling water. The shrouded image is an interesting concept to me, as well as the sense of motion. It is fun to discover a vehicle for the imagination within such a mundane subject.

Looks good from my end Don.
I find the same thing with my lap top. It depends on the angle that your looking at. My laptop seems to have a yellow tint to the screen and when I look at my stuff on other computers it leans toward blue.

Nice write up from Charley Parker on Lines and Colors Don.

Thanks for letting me know, Frank. I check in fairly frequently on Lines and Colors, but of course I didn't yesterday!
