The White Wave

9″x12″ (23 x 30 cm) – oil on gessobord – commission

Here’s a new painting titled The White Wave. A couple of years ago, when I first painted crinkled paper, the complexity, the chaos and the lack of logic or reason of it has got to be too much, and I promised myself that I would not paint crinkled paper again unless I would be paid for doing it. HA! I broke my promise in less than 3 months, just to see if the first painting was not a fluke and if I can really paint wrinkled paper. I could 🙂.

The real thing happened in the beginning of this year. A gallery that I worked with some years ago suggested a solo show later this year, the theme being crinkled paper. I am working on a new collection of works for this show. The first two pieces of this collection the gallery has commissioned – that’s the right way to support art! The White Wave is the first piece of this new series.

As far as good news go, this is pretty much up there!

      Thanks, Carol! I noticed that hundreds of hours of slaving over a painting sometimes pay off. Sometimes… Other times they don’t… sigh… Got lucky with this one 🙂 🙂

    I had completely forgotten that this is your painting. The last year has been overwhelming, upseting, and more. I was just working on my bookcases this morning, still putting things away, restyling. The shelves are white but the backing is red. That piece looks nice there. I ran across this connection in an old email so wanted to tell you and say hello.
