Warm Winds

These three panels (30"x30" each) are to be exhibited side by side as a trio.  They will be on view at Bau Xi Galleries in Toronto at my exhibition that starts Feb. 2, 2013.  The pieces were painted simultaneously and are meant to work together as a whole unit.

Rojos Hermosos

Rojos Hermosos, 30"x40", oil/panel, (click to enlarge)

The title of this painting is Spanish for "beautiful reds".  The client who commissioned this painting missed a similar themed work at auction.  She contacted Gallerie de Bellefeuille in Montreal who passed on her desire and asked if I could work with the idea again.

Sometimes this kind of thing presents an opportunity to get right what I did not succeed at in the first painting.   I wasn't as happy with the branching structures and the horizon placement the first time.  Now with the commission I have been able to improve those compositional aspects to my satisfaction.
