What's the medium?

We really need to have more information about the individual artworks posted here from time to time, especially when the documentation makes it difficult to distinguish.

Hey, yeah sorry about the lack of info with the email. These paintings are oil on latex and tape on canvas.

Thanks Kevin.

I just got back from Houston the other day and your piece reminded me of the paintings in the Rothko Chapel.

This is not to say that your painting is completly alike (especially since I'm just looking at a jpeg) but it seemed upon first impression to capture a similar sort of brooding spirit I was overwhlemed by a few days ago in the chapel.

I don't know if your familiar with it but you may find it interesting nonetheless.

Was witness to these at ccs recently in person and they are fine. It is good to see that the full on black canvas painting still has playablility. There have been some great exhibitions at the Dennos Museum in Traverse City summer and fall. A show "Artist Donate" has some great local and national talent. Including an artist whom donated two huge black painted canvases approx. 12'x10'. Charles Mcgee also has a beautiful piece of infinitely intermixing black and white in the show.. Currently another great exhibit there is one of pop and abstract expressionism from the sixties..

They are actually not black at all. I have seen them and they are a very very dark maroon or burgundy tone. Closest to black that you can get with color and the way he handled the edges by leaving them the underlying color, really helps the piece. Looking at the piece straight on, one can see colors between the panels as a result of the wall picking up reflections of the canvas edges and it really creates a whole new element to the work.
