Helen Frankenthaler

My artist friend Sheila sent me an e-mail the other night telling me of Helen Frankenthaler's passing. I am glad she did because I did not read anything about it in the news or did I see it on the network news shows.  I have to wonder why - I guess there is too much happening with the Kardashians or Lady GaGa for anyone to care about Helen Frankenthaler.  I did not love all of her work but she was an amazing artist.  I have a large book of her work and I love to sit and look through it - it is a treasure. We have lost another great artist - sigh!

Two New Abstract Paintings

Its been a long time since I have posted any abstract work - I have painted just not taken photos. I am in my new house and have yet to find that perfect spot to photo my art work. I took these 2 pictures today and the pics are not that great but they are OK. The first painting is 48X36 and very textured. The coloring on this is quite different for me - I do not usually work in green. The second is 36X36 and a more comfortable color pallet for me. I am happy with both paintings. They may both be going to an exhibit in January - we shall see.
