New York Minute. 10106, textured metallic abstracts






This painting is a diptych with each panel measuring 40x12. There is a bold, textured grid section on each panel. The dramatic colors and dynamic composition reminded me of the energy and excitement that is found in New York City.
Thoughts of 9-11 did not guide me in the creation of this piece, but after it was completed, I can see how such memories could be brought to mind.
I had difficulty photographing this piece with all it's metallic passages. There are gray-blue areas in the lower sections that appear black in the photo.

I love this - love the poppies too. I've never been much for abstracts but you are changing my mind! How did you do the textured part? I'd love to see a WIP from you. Great work. BTW I love the archaeological ones too.
