Letting Loose with Crazy Colors & Abstraction

Sometimes I need to create wild, vibrantly abstract works especially after doing so many pieces with tight detail. It's very therapeutic, and I love painting these riots of pure color and energy! I hope you enjoy them too.

I even like my newspaper palette after I'm done. What a party!

New Painting: "Broken or Whole?"

The last painting I finished for my "A Vivid Paradox" show was this one, Broken or Whole.

"A Vivid Paradox" Exhibition Night

Well well, after months of hard work and a week or so of pure stress and seemingly insurmountable deadlines, we have safely opened "A Vivid Paradox"! Plaza Night was lovely with lots of visitors stopping by to see the show. Thank you thank you everyone who came to see it. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

If you missed opening night, you can still stop by DNA Galleries anytime to see the works (until the end of August.) Remember that there are signed prints of several pieces ($35-$65), and wonderful 6-card packs featuring one of each painting of mine at this show ($15.) Let me know if you have questions about anything. ^^/
