This painting took many many hours. There was a lot of back and forth with my lights and darks as well as massive amounts of composition editing. I like the green vs orange division. It creates a battle between two neutral colors fighting for depth in space. I feel some of the black is too heavy.
This painting and 7 others in the same style will be on exhibit at the Nth Gallery in Boone, NC on July 2nd. We are having our 13th anniversary show and fundraiser.

This new painting titled "price" is the color of money and its composition much calmer than I have been working lately. These colors were quite the test. They were the result of having no paint. I had to work with what I had. This is also the first time I have broken one of these compositions into three parts. usually the compositions stretch across the entire picture plane, however this time I let it separate from itself.
