Here are a couple of 'new' textured abstracts, both of which I started last year when I was living in Golden. The first one below, Alignments (8x7), I finished working on last week. It is similar to the Veil Series I've been working on for the past couple of years, though they are textural, similar to my first abstracts like Sunspots (Red X) on my homepage and the Abstracts page. Distant Memory of Color, bottom, is just that. A haunting memory of a color I've used or seen elsewhere but can't quite place. It certainly looks old to me, like an oxidized relic unearthed by archaeologists. I had to sit with it for a while to see if it was finished. It is. I love the physicality of these two paintings. I especially like the way the light catches the edges in Memory, which is one of those paintings that remains a mystery to me. Paintings like this don't come from you, just through you.
