I went into an entirely different direction with this painting. Anyone who knows my art, knows I like thick lines and lots of disruptive colors, as well as a general do what I want and color-outside-the-lines feel.

But mid-century modernism is all the rage -- or has been -- maybe I'm jumping on the bandwagon a bit late -- anyway, I wanted to make a painting that would fit into Frank Sinatra's 1955 home in Palm Springs. I experimented and created something with straight lines and strong colors. I used six 16 X 12 gallery canvasses, lots of pumice, and rich colors. All the frames are bolted to each other. As a personal touch, there is a piece of wood from a chicken coop and a building cut-out from a 1950s postcard, as well. 36 X 52.5 inches.
