Revolution No. 11

Revolution No. 11, 48 x 36 inches, acrylic on canvas, $1800

Igor Feroz

Igor Feroz, 8 x 8 inches, acrylic on masonite, $85

Sonora Morning

Sonora Morning, 8 x 8 inches, acrylic on canvas board, $85


This was my earliest attempt at a small, abstracted landscape.  After finishing it, I remember regarding it in some bewilderment, then consigning it to a box for several years.  Even though it looks like nothing I've ever done before, or since, it now evokes for me perfectly the pristine, almost heartbreaking beauty of a Sonoran morning.    Buy it now at the Daily Paintworks link at the right.
