Large Cruciform Abstract Painting

One of my favorite designs is the cruciform.  In this abstract composition, I played with paper, paint, ink, and charcoal on a canvas surface.  The original work was created on a 9x12 stretched canvas, but with the capabilities of modern digital photography,  small collages can be reproduced as very large abstract paintings.  If you would like to purchase the original, please contact me at  Reproductions are available from my website here.  I hope you enjoyed looking and will stop by for a visit.

Stormy Afternoon Landscape Painting

Second in my recent series of little landscape paintings is this 8x10 oil on stretched canvas.  It was inspired by one of those rare stormy summer days when the wind is blowing, the rain is pouring, and then the clouds part and the sunlight streams down giving a little glow to the world.  The original will eventually be listed in the Barns and Buildings section of my Etsy Shop.  Fine art reproduction prints and posters are available from my website, here.  I hope you will stop by and take a look.

Country Barn Landscape Oil Painting

Abstract paintings have been my staple for quite a while, but recently I felt a need to get back to some representational work.  This is one of three little 8x10 landscape paintings that I recently finished.  It was fun to go back to oils and brush up my skills.  Both the original and reproduction fine art prints and posters are available for purchase.  The original painting is listed in my Etsy Shop, here.  Reproduction prints and posters are available from my website, here.  I hope you will stop by.

Signature Series Abstract Painting

The second in a series of abstract paintings inspired by the beautiful calligraphy of the handwritten signature, this painting was created using acrylic paints on a 9x12 inch stretched canvas.  Reproduction prints and posters of this painting are available here, in my abstract gallery at Fine Art America.  The first in the series is also available.  Check out my entire portfolio by visiting this gallery.

South by Southwest Abstract Painting

Working with the lines and circles motif, I'm still creating my latest abstract series.  This image was developed with mixed media and acrylic paint on a 9x12 inch stretched canvas.  As I worked, my mind kept gravitating toward the colors of the Southwest, turquoise, yellow, and orange.  Scribbles and swirls of paint and charcoal with a few strips of patterned paper combined for the finished painting. Fine art reproduction posters and prints of the image are available here, in my Fine Art America Abstract Gallery.  I hope you will stop by for a visit.
