By mid-September I will have a new series of Colorstretch works hanging at Agrodolce Restaurant in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. They will be placed in the bar of the restaurant.
The Colorstretch technique that I started using in 2006 has evolved over the years. The artistry is still being worked on as far as paint used and the process of making the painting itself. The look is inspired by the love of fluidity, water swirling, tides, waves. I have to admit that another reason I like the technique is because it reminds me of 1960-70″s era sound speakers that my Mom had when I was a kid. They had this beautiful swirly colored fabric that was so unique and fun to look at. Your eyes followed the whole surface.
The new ones in the works are going to be the largest to date with the size of 36″ x 48″ they will be rather large and therefore far more eye flow. There will be ones with thinner bands of color that are tighter together, and ones that have wider bands of pure color.
