"Red Desire & Passion Purple" 48x78 inch paintings are the geneses of a new series of significant works, which were inspired by a conversation I had with a new collector. I wanted to savor them for a while in the studio while I produced others and envelope myself with a room full of large paintings, but alas they sold from this studio snap photo I took of them and shared. I will be painting others in this size in a multitude of mostly monochromatic colors. Currently, a palette of greens and blues are on the table; it reminds me of the palette that Monet used in his Giverny Garden paintings. I believe I am starting a new series; maybe I will explore other artists' palettes too!
