First of Six

In addition to the “Oil Spill Series” of dot paintings, I have been working on six more paintings in the “Numeros Series.” Since I had paint left over, I figured I should use some of it for the first layer of paint on those paintings. You will notice that I haven’t even finished the first coat on them. Here’s the first of the six paintings. The order of the paintings may change as I
finish them.

Concentric Circles

At a National Art Education Association Convention in Boston in 2004, I attended an “Ice Cream Party” sponsored by Stafford. Around the room there were tables designated for using Stafford products to create art projects. Below is what I made with a coffee filter, Sharpie markers and paint pens. Naturally I gravitated to making a dot piece.

The list of sea life, affected by the spill, continues to grow. For this painting, I worked from a couple of photos of dolphins. I chose realistic colors and kept my final image subtle. I have no further plans for paintings related to the oil spill. The topic has become a sore point for me.
