Modi 3

Modi 3 is my first attempt at morphing figures together on glass. Quick brushwork was required, and the paint became thick and uncontrollable in the end. To no avail, the paint spark returned and everything fell into place.
This image was conceived from two works by Modiglianni.

After days of thought and an old Sharpie dying out, I changed the painting into a reflection of our troops fighting against martyrs willing to die for a promised 72 virgins.

New Non Objective

Going big today with a 3×5 foot canvass. I wanted to paint a non objective and see where the night would take me. I wound up with broad strokes and organic lines. I am pleased with the results and I hope you enjoy the piece from all four sides.

Window horses

Hello Art fans,
A new day brings a new commission. I was asked to paint horses on one of my last antique windows in stock. So I went to one of my favorite artists Franz Marc from a small town near Munich. He was the founder of the German expressionists movement known as the Blue Rider. (Der Blau Reiter) Marc was killed in the battle of Verdun in WWI. Sad to think the great artists of the time were on opposite sides shooting at each other.
Marc was known for painting animals in their natural setting. I wanted to paint something bold with large areas of pure color. Minimal Sharpie, maximum paint. I hope you like the piece as well as Carlo and Ingrid Krause the German couple who commissioned the painting as an addition to their horse farm in Middleton Wisconsin.

Look for the one photo from the painted side of the window:
