Rock Stage

Rock Stage

Ghosts float across the flat surface
Puckered flat shoals
Just above the surface
The stage
Capturing the turmoil
Hidden in their history

Islands off Solitude

Behind Umbrellas

Behind Umbrellas

This painting was recently accepted into the “Think Small 2013” show at Lawrence Street Gallery in Ferndale, Michigan. 
It is a small watercolor version of one of my ink sketches, posted a while ago.
Also posted a while ago is a much larger acrylic version of this same composition also based on the sketch.
I must say, I still like the original sketch better than either of the paintings.
8”x 8” watercolor on 140# cold press.

Window Seat Tears

The above sketch titled “Window Seat Tears” was also accepted into the “Think Small 2013 show. I’ve done a couple of painted versions of this sketch too.
Entered the original concept sketch in a show is a first for me.
If you follow my blog, I’m sure you’ve seen the painted versions of this sketch.
5.5”x 8.5” ink on toned grey paper.
