Rufescent = Reddish Paintings

After new computer system upgrades, my seven-year old Nikon camera card reader became obsolete. Now, using the newest Lightroom software and a new card reader I have access to improved image processing tools.

I’m pleased with these new tools. I cropped the images of my latest paintings in my new Rufescent Series. The word rufescent simply means “reddish” and the three new paintings I’m posting today all have reddish tones– from fluorescent reds to earth reds.

Although I painted all three of these paintings in my preferred vertical orientation, I know that many people prefer them horizontal. When framed they can be hung either way.

While the two paintings above work visually at either horizontal or vertical orientation, I prefer the red and green fluorescent painting below at a vertical orientation, which is how I painted it.

Galleries Calling + 5 new paintings for March

I’ve had 3 art galleries and a new online art site contact me recently for paintings. Also, a married couple who want to commission a large painting from me wanted to see samples of my work. So, I’ve been juggling–which paintings to send where etc. If a painting sells online, I have to make sure that it’s available and that I haven’t put it on consignment with an art gallery.

Here are 4 new March 2014 paintings–

Ploce Series

The title of this new painting on paper is ploce  (pronounced  PLOH-see)–the word means the repetition of a word or phrase to gain special emphasis or to indicate an extension of meaning, as in Ex. 3:14: “I am that I am.”
