Paintings June - July 2009
Welcome to mid-year 2009's crop of works. Some are fanciful, while others are more complicated. I was surprised that the majority of paintings coming from a burst of creativity ended up going to new homes during the summer exhibition season of 2009...

I decided to create a series
of small, reasonably-priced stylized crabs and starfish on improvisational abstract backgrounds during 2009.
 
Surprisingly, these paintings have generated a lot of interest at summer art shows. Many have found new homes as you can see from the availability of the works depicted here. I never know what art buyers will connect with, but I am pleased these have been such a hit.
 
In addition, I created several abstract pieces which stand on their own. This set of pieces stretches down the rest of the page here and onto my third web site which you can use the following link to access:
