The Small Landscape Giveaway has occupied the painting space on this blog for a long time – all winter, in fact, right? So I have a lot of paintings that I’ve worked on since the fall to show you and I’ll start in right here.
These paintings are all 6″ x 6″ and done in acrylics on board – some with an applied gesso surface with a texture, some with smooth, and some that I gessoed myself with a slightly rough surface. I see that I was using up the tail ends of a lot of categories of board, wasn’t I?
These paintings were all done around the time of October, 2015. Many of them refer to actual sights I saw – look at the captions for more information, if you are interested.
The chair and the window were in the library of Arcadia University reading room – I added a figure looking out at the open green beyond the window.
This bus just let someone out at Easton Road near the train station in Glenside, PA.
This house was perched up on a hill on a nice street in northwest Washington, DC.
The ladies were shopping at a show I did at Archbishop Wood High School in Warminster, PA.
This train (which in real life is silver, not pink…) is crossing the road in Glenside, PA.
This turquoise bus was moving down the street in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. As you may remember, I love the buses in that city – they are painted in a variety of colors and it’s a treat to watch them go through traffic on the streets.
