Feeling Blue©

"Simplicity is Beauty"

I love the saturation of the blues...
and that compelling illusion
by modulating my palette
through gradations of light and darks
in these beautiful blue tones.

Golden of course....

This Diptych definitely is a minimal design

Minimalism is stressing the idea of reducing a work of art to the minimum number of colors, values, shapes, lines and textures.
No attempt is made to represent or symbolize any other object or experience.

I finished this Diptych Acrylic on canvas with a workable gloss medium varnish, which gives both of these canvases an oil paint feeling.

This diptych will be exhibit (with many more of my pieces) at:
--The Academy of Lifelong Learning (University of DE)
November 2-6 "Grief Awareness Exhibit" with numerous other artists.

--In Newark's (DE) Grief Awareness Festival, Sunday November 8, 2009


"That Grief Awareness Exhibit developed into a huge thing at the Academy!
Many artist were very reluctant, but in the end I'm very grateful so many artists will participate next week.
WOW... I'm humbled by your participation and your awesome work!! "
( a very proud Art Teacher)
