The Great Web

40" x 48" Oil and Gesso on Canvas Personal Collection Always loved the freedom of technique, and subject matter that abstract painting allows. I realized as I was painting this, how quickly it was happening, and as a result, I had to force myself to slow down to consider compositional elements. Some of the best pieces of artwork are the simplest, not always, but sometimes. In the past, I've spent many enjoyable, quiet moments studying the great abstact expressionists, the likes of; Kline, Motherwell, Pollack, Rothko, deKooning, Frankenthaler, Rauschenberg, etc...
