Finding the River-Four 8x10s



detail of center


I took some new pics of some completed paintings this evening--some newly finished work and some older stuff. I thought I'd share some from time to time.

These are four 8x10 canvases that I painted some time ago. At one of my first Art Crawls I hung a series of paintings I titled "Finding the River"...when I saw all those paintings together, I was struck at how the work all flowed one to another...and one of my studio visitors actually commented that it would be interesting to create a set of canvases that actually did just that...and so I did.

I like how this experiment turned out...I haven't quite figured out how I want to frame/present them--other than hanging them as above. The sides of the canvases are painted, so I could keep it simple. Or I could mount them on a painted hardboard.

Any thoughts?

Great colour combo! I like them the way they are....more freedom for creativity I think...

I would absolutely leave them just as they are. They're gorgeous!

very cool - I'd leave them be. They'd even look good staggered
