Abstract on paper 30X22 - acrylic, collage and mixed media. I was working on 2 paintings today and was thinking my new work - "it ain't pretty". Well this is the look I am going for - edgy and raw - and that is most definitely not pretty. So does a painting have to be pretty to be valid or saleable? I think not - well I hope not. I look at the work of Robert Rauschenberg and don't find anything pretty - but I do find amazing art work. It is deep and thought provoking - what more can one ask for!
