Look. Something new!
I have started a collection of pieces called TINY ART. These pieces are
all small. They are created in mixed media on all types of substrates.
They are for sale: $100 for the original OR $30 for matte photographic reproductions.
This is Tiny Art 121. (click to enlarge). This piece is an experiment/study/trial for a large scale painting I hope to begin in July. The texture and visual music of a cityscape is very much like a jazz tune to me. And this small painting was very much like an improvised solo - working quickly in paint and pencil layers without waiting for the paint to dry. I used to play saxophone in a jazz band and when I was asked to do a improvised solo I always felt a nervous out-of-control feeling. I wish I knew then that I should have just rolled with it. It lands where it lands and the magic is in the faith that it will be what it will be. This painting became, to my delight, very much like a real city with new and old and fresh and dried ideas. Like a terrific and very short solo. I intend to further explore this feel after I hunt up my Oscar Peterson music and turn it up real loud.
