what happens if I do....?

My paintings, all memory right now, begin as total abstracts. They are all about sunrise.  I will continue to play with color and edge. Testing the possibilities.
I am just seeing what happens.

This is hot ... what happens if you tell me how you did that wash? Lot's of gouache involved? I really like this one. Nice going B.

Hey pb, hot?? you say! No gouache, but I did use my usual chinese white and a big thick chip brush. No secrets...you too can do it. So good to hear from you!

Hi Loriann,
I like the direction in which you are going. Yesterday and todays postings-strong paintings- gestural with rich color. I quote this passage that I think applies to your paintings ..................................................
As Kahn and his colleagues looked for an art grounded in direct experiences, landscape beckoned on two counts. First it represented a common experience that needed no explanation, and secondly, it is inherently accommodating to a free, spontaneous development.-
Finkelstein Louis, The Development of Wolf Kahn's
Painting Language, from the book Wolf Kahn, ed by Justin Spring

There is an exhibition of Wolf Kahn's recent paintings currently on display at Ameringer, McEnery & Yohe, NYC

Are you going to participate in Richard Mckinley's
workshop this year?

You know I love your stuff, but these are both outstanding. The first one is pure magic. Hyperbole fails me, but really... MAGIC.

Doug is right, the top one does look like gouache, especially that run! Love this direction....

Hi NJ, Great quote! Thank you for sharing...it's so true. Thank you about my recent explorations.

Hi again NJ! I forgot to answer your question. Yes, I will participate in Richard's workshop. I leave early Thursday morning. Can't wait!

Wow Sam, thanks!! Magic!? Thanks!

Thanks Maggie. No gouache, just the usual watercolor and pastel.

Thanks Casey!

I really like this idea of 'memory painting,' which I have not been brave enough to try yet...

the Kahn show was interesting because you can really see and understand the experience of color and place.

OMG! I think this is INCREDIBLE! Just stunning to pop over to your blog and find another jewel!

Hi Nj, Don't let the opinions of others deter you. Remind yourself it is just a process the product doesn't matter. Then embrace the journey.
PS Love Wolf Kahn!
