the Nine Flowers of East 4th St. Nyc summer 08
Hello, to all, from where ever you may be, thank you for joining me. This is my first post, on my first blog, i hope that it may produce much good news, and inspire you.
This series of paintings is indicative of the development of my work. I have become attached to the observation of the natural environment. This series has to do with a group of flowers, nine total, which i encountered while gardening on East 4th St. in New York City; on the block where my studio resides.
All the canvases are stretched around wider pieces of framing to have a box effect, and a few of them are created from recycled wood. Each canvas frame is 7x7in.
All the backgrounds are constructed with shades of phthalo green and gold. i have used various medias such as graphite, ink, acrylic, and oil, to acheive the effects.
enjoy the power of the garden...
when we meet again: 4 canvases from one west coast adventure
