Bowlful

                                            6x6 $90

I've been in Bisbee for the weekend with my Mom and sisters. It was their first time. It was fun to show off one of my favorite fun quirky places. We had dinner at the Cafe Roka (awesome) and breakfast at the Bisbee Breakfast Club (also awesome). The only downside was a 4 hour drunken argument in the room next door that prevented us from getting a nights sleep. I kept waiting for them to pass out....

So...this is a painting that I did before my company arrived. I loved the shadow shape above all. Who would eat oranges with a spoon with the rinds on? Well, I don't know....does it have to make sense??????

  3. Very beautiful! The way you have gradually pumped up the chromatic intensity of your hues from the suggestive colorful grays of the floor plane to the accented brighter parts of the picture bespeaks a thoughtful pacing of your energies throughout its making. Very subtle adjustments of tone and color. The spoon with the oranges? Shocking! Next time try chopsticks.
