In most of my paintings, I include areas of bright fluorescent red, fluorescent green, or fluorescent orange, and sometimes fluorescent yellow.
I had to make an effort to produce this painting below with no fluorescent paint, but yet, the ground—muted by a wash of my own earth yellow mix–does have spots of fluorescent red around the base of the central form.
Have you ever painted something that just doesn’t seem to fit in with anything you’ve done before, or what you are working on now? But then there they were, bothering me for weeks! So, I decided to go ahead and photograph them and then put them away.
So, I’ve sold one. A print on metal on the Displate site. You can view my portfolios of art available as prints in metal on Displate here.
Here is a screen shot of the print that sold. Displate prints the image on metal, and adds a hologram sticker to the back to verify authenticity. They also include a magnet wall mounting device in the order shipped to the buyer.
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.”
