My newest obsession LARGE!

detail showing texture and low relief drawn images.

What can I say, in college I studied Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell.  I have always loved BIG abstracts, so.............
These are on stretched canvas, enamel black paint and cool colored satin white, scrapings and low relief drawings are done in dimensional paint.

These are only 3' x 4'.   My next two will be 4' x 6' - then larger after that!
