Waves - oil on six 6x6" panels

This was an experiment. And I have to still resolve and finish the installation. I wanted to do a modular painting, that could hang in different groupings. you could hang it together next to each other or separate some or hang some on another wall. I think I will attempt a larger version, when I have time.

Dancing Mountains - oil on canvas - 20x20"

All the detail in the Old Town painting was just too much and I wanted to do something fun. Something playful and simple. Never believe if someone says that abstract painting is easy. I was repainting and repainting this so many times, it seems unbelievable. And at the end I looked at it and finalized the painting as a landscape. The process is always unpredictable.

Old Town - oil on canvas - 30x24"

Moody view of the old town side of the river Vltava in Prague. I was intrigued by the sky and the neutral hues in the buildings. I love the colors and i was trying to preserve as much of the underpainting as I could. It is so tempting to cover it all up.
