This was my bleu period which involved my love of all the different shades of blue, cerulean, ultramarine, manganese, indigo, cobalt, prussian, pthalo, cyan there are so many, I love them all!
they are a celebration of blue

Indigo Blues, the 8x8 version of one of my larger pieces, it will be in my Daily Paint Works auction, check it out.
the inspiration for this painting was a dark, smokey blues club, well maybe it wasn't smokey because you can't smoke indoors anymore but you know what I mean.

this is basically the method of my madness,
first sitting
sketch in pencil or paint,
fill in the colors like a coloring book
second sitting:
outline & details
when dry enough, varnish with dammar

I also rub some color on the blank canvas to give the painting an inner fire.
I also just noticed my Virtuoso needs a bow, haha

The Small Stuff

My new series of small versions of some of my favorite paintings that I no longer have but want to revisit. Since being on DPW, I've started painting small which I really didn't do much of before but I do like it. It's easier once you get used to it, a lot of my paintings are very large. It almost takes longer to actually paint small, but everything else is easier and more convenient. Your supplies last longer,  it's easy to store, easy to transport to galleries. framing. I'm becoming addicted.
Here are a couple of recent paintings, I've used canvas board but after trying gesso board, that is my fave.
