"Artist's Chair"

Acrylic 44" x 48"
Now that I see the painting on this post I've noticed that I haven't put the design on the center yellow stripe. Sometimes, just when I think the painting is done, I see something else that needs doing.

"Side by Side"

Silkscreen print on Arches 88 with oil based ink, hand printed by me. I've often chosen chairs as subject matter. These two were at the family cottage in Ipswitch, MA.  I did silkscreen prints for 10 years before switching to painting.  With a print the artist is locked into a single image for a whole month during production.  I found it restricting.

"Shirley Poppies" - "Asian Peonies"

46" x 50" acrylic on canvas

48" x 56" acrylic on canvas
These two large canvases are finally done. I had a loss of art focus this summer. Natural to have some times be more productive than others. These paintings are not square. I haven't mastered how to have images posted more accurately.
