(More) paintings revisited, retouched, and two new

acrylic paintings, contempory art

Fall is slowly arriving in the Hudson Valley, and the splash of colors I see from the windows of my studio inspire me to add my own splash of colors. Slight differences between the old and new versions of paintings — old, meaning in my case a few months’ old, since I only started painting in January this year.

And also,¬†two new paintings… Berlin Celebration (below) may need a few splashes of color — but for now I like the white-on-black and hint of red and yellow. This painting would not be possible without the inspiration of Gerhard Richter’s early amazing monochromes.

And Street Art Berlin (below), hmmm…. this really is a slightly altered depiction of wall art I saw on my last trip to Berlin — a lot of famous artists have added their splashes to the buildings in Berlin, and this could be one by the infamous and wonderful Richard Prince (note the “U R So Porno Baby”), which would be perfect, considering he borrows from others as I am presumably borrowing from him in this painting. With all due respect. He follows me on Instagram. And he lives nearby. Howdy, neighbor. I should tag him. Oh, yes, I’ll do that.
