"Simplicity is Beauty"
I love the
saturation of the
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
reducing a work of art to the minimum
of colors, values, shapes, lines and
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)
