New Painting — Nebulous

I recently finished this painting, Nebulous (acrylic on panel, 24×24 inches), and hope to exhibit it at Artists’ Gallery in July.  It’s difficult to capture the look of this piece in the online image as the painting is comprised of approximately a dozen layers of paint with lightly tinted glazes providing physical separation and depth to the mark-making.  The surface is super glossy and almost mirror-like.  For this painting, I was interested in working on a dark background and keeping the color scheme minimal, with light turquoise marks playing against the layers of very lightly tinted red glaze (hard to see in the online image).

    Great colors and composition – hopefully one day I can see your work in person – as I can only imagine the play of light with the layering.

    Congratulations on your gifts.

    Thanks everyone… This painting will be on display at my 2-person show at Artists’ Gallery in September (Sep 11-Oct 4). BTW, I should add that Mr. Wert is *not* me, but a commenter from Connecticut whose identity I verified.
