Playing Games 3

Adding to my series of game piece still life oils here. I was trying to juxtapose the primary reds with the contrasts of the metal, while letting the white die blend into the white background somewhat.

Oreo Stack

What could be better than a short stack of Oreos?  Good for painting, good for eating - well, maybe not so good for you after eating. Tricky details here.

Coming In

This small painting was based on a few photos of clouds I had in my studio. I thought I'd concentrate on a big sky with minimal ground, but didn't spend a lot of time thinking or planning beyond that. The ultimate result is fresh and gestural - hopefully an example of more painterly work to come.

Beach Rocks

In this painting I was really attracted to the huge rocks that had collected on the beach, probably put there by the force of the sea. A great juxtaposition of the weight of the rocks vs. the power of moving water. I hope I captured a similar contrast by the darkness of the rocks vs the lighter serenity of the low tide.

Dum Dums

Here's number two in what I thought was going to be a series of paintings featuring candy. Although the labels tend to be bright and primary, the type adds an entirely different element - sometimes making it feel a little more  forced and illustrative than painterly and loose. Looking for inspiration for number three.
