Speaking of Texture

As much as I enjoy being a colorist at times, especially with large canvases, I still love creating small textural works for texture’s sake. Here are three new ones that I’ve sent to Michael Murphy Gallery in Tampa.

Haiku 135 – Mixed Media on Cradled Panel, 8 x 8 x 2 inches

Haiku 137 – Mixed Media on Cradled Panel, 8 x 8 x 2 inches

Haiku 139 – Mixed Media on Cradled Panel

And not sure whether or not I’ve shown this before, but back when I was teaching a group of students in my studio, I created a texture board for them. It was fun to do, and really only gave a few examples of textures that are possible with acrylics and textural media. Fun stuff. Shown beneath the board image are the individual textures with readable labels.
