Blurb on Painters' Table

I was recently featured on Structure and Imagery, a blog by Paul Behnke. As part of Behnke's "In Process" series, he takes a look at two of my paintings during the process. 
Well, Painters' Table, a fantastic collection of art related links from the blogosphere, put together a short mention inviting readers to visit the "In Process" feature! I am really grateful and excited to be mentioned on such a site. Here is a screen shot:

Feature on Structure and Imagery

I was recently featured on Paul Behnke's blog titled Structure and Imagery for his "In Process" series. This series takes a close look at the process of a painting(s) in various stages while working. These two paintings are the focus of my feature.

 I blew out all of the candles in one go, 2013, acrylic and latex on foam, 24 x 18 in.

You have no new messages, 2013, acrylic and latex on foam, 24 x 16 in.

I would like to invite you to visit Behnke's blog to see where these paintings came from and where they went during the painting process. You can visit the feature here: Structure and Imagery

Collaboration: Stephen B. MacInnis, Phillip J. Mellen

Stephen B. MacInnis and I have begun a collaboration. Using my short poems and musings, coupled with Stephen's paintings. I have mailed Stephen a sheet of my writings and he is then making paintings that have my writings as an element. His paintings still remain bright and highly abstract, even though my texts usually explore love and other mysteries.
I hope you enjoy this post, holding the first three paintings in this ongoing series.
Please visit Stephen's blog, there you will find more of his work along with a great interview series he has been putting together: Painter's Progress

All paintings are 12" x 12" mixed media on paper
