Fluorescents, Landscapes, PPF
Night Reflections, For sale on DPW Auction
Abstract 12x16 Cityscape on the River, with starry night sky and soft reflections of the tall buildings in the water. Looks awesome under blacklight, but striking in daylight as well. Fluorescent Neon Acrylic paints, metallics and interference colors on canvas board. Expressionistic style. Difficult to photograph the full effect. You can see the metallic sky in this one a little better.
A little square canvas portrait I did for a friend. I was inspired by Francoise Nielly's bright neon faces. Her paintings are HUGE. Mine is tiny.
I usually do the weekly DPW challenge, and this week we painted an "intimate landscape" from a photo. Here is my mixed media 5x7 painting, "Hidden Whirlpool,"
and here it is with a mat. It really looks best with a mat, I think.
And this is the photo we used for reference. It's amazing to see all of the different artists' take on it. No two alike!
