Have Another Donut

Red Donut, 2001-2009, Oil on panel

Here's a recent painting destined for the SJICA (San Jose institute of Contemporary Art). Red Donut was part of a triptych completed in 2001.  I have reworked the painting. I've changed the red a bit and intensified the 3D illusion.

Warm Weather Makes Paint Dry Faster

A Dish of Pears, 2009, Oil on Canvas, 11" x 14"



I like warm weather for many reasons but when it comes to painting in oils, the warmth makes the paint dry faster and I can get more work done. Here's a piece I started a year ago and finally got back to and finished today.









Self Portrait, 2007, Acrylic on vinyl, 12" x 12"

Here's a self portrait I created a couple of years ago. It's painted on an old LP.
