What Is It? How Does One Get It?  

Sometimes, I might find I have more to say about one of my previous ideas. Recently as I reviewed a series I painted three or four years ago exploring the act or state of suspending various shapes, objects or letters. I found myself excited by a flow of new possibilities and a need for further development.  My new exploration, below, yielded a leaner, subdued palette which infuses “Suspensions” with enigma and a certain disorientation.

NEWSY BITS:

END OF ONE SHOW . . .

The month-long show at Desert Art Collection closed mid-April ending in a big commission. A gallery client liked one of the exhibited pieces, but wanted it in different dimensions and quite a bit bigger. I was happy to oblige with “Winds of Change Three Suns”.

Also at the Desert Art Collection is an ongoing exhibit. I stopped by and took a little video of it.
