Autumn Abstract

Autumn is on its way, and my colorful abstract at the left reflects this fact. I still reflect on the wonderful paintings I saw over the summer, particularly those of one of my favorite artists, Arshile Gorky. I appreciate especially his expressive use of brush strokes and vivid patches of color. His sensitive brush strokes are unsurpassed. I marvel at his finely delineated black lines, meticulously placed, and his exquisite craftsmanship.
