Color-blocking on two new pieces:

IMG_2425

Enter a caption

artist’s note: I chose to do a treatment of the double-helix structure of DNA, because it represented a certain challenge –because there’s a certainly difficulty, for me, to do a work of something that’s a commonly produced image, and one I associate strongly with another artist.

We’ll see what happens as the piece develops.

IMG_5482

Double-Helix motif, second sitting, 12″ x 24″ oil and graphite on canvas.

 

Setting this one aside, to work on the other one. Also, it has a name now.

Started a second new work. I am working in a limited color palette designed for a particular space I may have the opportunity to show work at, –loosely this is a series of oil paintings meant to be shown together. (the other I have started begins a couple images down).
