Brushes Tryptic

My friend Chris Greco suggested I make a tryptic frame for my "Brushes" paintings...I like it!

Brushes #6

I'm beginning to get more expressive and suggestive brush strokes on the brushes.

Golden Field

Less than 1 mile from my house, this beautiful farm is the subject of many paintings. It use to be
Westin Hook Farm. Now, with new owners it's called Willow Creek.

Brushes #3

I like painting the brushes. Like peppers in a kitchen, they would look good framed in an artists studio.

Brushes #2

Almost all the same brushes with the addition of a palette knife. I like the results of a palette knife after scraping on the canvas. It gives you a "Ghost" of what was there and removes the confusion. Then by applying a few fresh and correct strokes, your left with a beautiful suggestion. Thus allowing the viewer to add the most important ingredient...Imagination!

Brushes #1

I was trying to figure out what to paint next after the row of red peppers that looked so attractive. My daughter suggested I do a row of paint brushes!
