What's Up With Red, Anyway? Part 4

Updated: Feb 15, 2019


"Allure And Danger" 24x36 inches.

This painting gets attention. Every time I have displayed it in my studio, people are magnetized to it. The power of red as a color in my painting is no stronger on-display than in this piece.


At a recent open studio, something I heard frequently was "Wow, look at this painting! Is it new? How come I've never seen it before?"


And it struck me that I've not put this painting out in the public often enough. It displayed for about a month at a gallery that no longer exists, and has been on my studio racks since.


The way I've treated this painting is a way I've habitually treated myself and my business. I get excited about an idea, execute it, then get timid about it and hide it. It's something I've identified recently as something I need to grow out of, because I feel like the world is missing out on what I have the potential to tap into with my art. All I need to do is see it through and guide an idea along through the journey it's meant to take.


I am happy to reintroduce to you this painting as a direct communication between myself and you the supporter.


At a size of 2 by 3 feet, it is large enough to stand out on any wall, yet not too large to be overwhelming or unable to fit in most spaces.


In this studio shot, you can see some of the texture in the piece. When I painted it, it started off fairly abstract and textural. As I painted it, the fact was driven home that my passion is pure painting: using brushwork to depict form, light, shape and value. If you read the passion in the painting, then you are the person this painting is speaking to.
