Red and Black

Red and Black, 2010, egg tempera on panel, 12 x 12 inches

Here is Red and Black, which I finished over the weekend. I like the contrast between the bright, flat red shapes and the dark, more organically shaped interior. The disheveled wiring adds linear fun to the more geometric forms. (after thinking about Guston, I've been seeing my work through a cartoon lens, which I enjoy.)


  1. and that bright wing-nut acts as the eye, which every painting needs to stare back at you with.

  2. ah, yes, and it's like the bolt in the painting Green Tilt and the buoy in your River Grid.
