First Paint+1

The end of summer and beginning of fall are always a time of great reflection for me. The days start to grow colder and shorter, the leaves here in the Pacific Northwest begin their change from green to gold. The world looks back at the summer days and longs for one more night.

One more sunburned kiss one more most amazing sunset ever.
**Special thanks to Ottawa for the sunset memories**
Lately I’ve been focusing on two pieces. Both born from a previous commissioned piece.

#1 green/yellow/blue currently I’m not releasing the title.

So far on This piece just the back ground is done. It’ll still add some primary aquatic color and texture.
The second piece is I’m colors of passion…. Or as I see it.

This piece will be completed in this style:

I’ve also been re-touching an older oil piece. This was one of the first Abstract “mother and child” pieces I did starting back in the late 80’s early 90’s. This piece used to be 4 feet by 4 feet then one day durning a cross country move~ disaster struck…..a rip in the canvas.. 😦 this small 18-24 section is all that was salvageable. In my opinion it’s title and image still stand the test of time. It’s an embryonic view of mother and child.

Well folks that’s about all I’ve got for you today. I hope the world has been kind to you all and you to it. Please remember to always.
Be Brave, Be Bold and Thrive in the life you have. You never know when it will change… And it will.

Always

  1. one more sunburned kiss – yes. these are all lovely, and when you say this is all i have to offer today, it is so understated. instead, it should be, ‘this is my wonderful bounty of beauty that i am offering today.’

  2. Hello
    I have following your work, here on WordPress for a time…and i have always the same impression in my heart….You, Artist, you paint from inside out…Something that i cant understand but it is so so beautiful…

    • Mirna, thank you truly. I do paint from the inside out, I appreciate that you see that. So often in life we separate ourselves from one another by class,race,demographic and religion. When in fact the most important things in life we all share, emotions. Love, fear, loss, want, hope and courage. I like to think I help bridge that gap for people.
      Again many thanks for your time and comment.
      Sincerely
      Benjamin
