Golden Spiral

 "Golden Spiral"
10 x 16 inches, oil on canvas

Why did I call this one "Golden Spiral?" Because it fits so nicely inside the Fibonacci spiral! You can see another painting on a Golden Mean ratio canvas in my previous post.

Slices and Halves

"Slices and Halves"
8 x 13 inches, oil on panel

Kind of a strange canvas size, this 8x13" deal that Masterpiece makes - and strangely wonderful to work on. The reason why isn't a mystery!

13/8 = 1.62, aka the Golden Mean, or Golden Ratio.

Red Heels no. 2

"Red Heels no. 2"
9 x 12 inches, oil on panel

I had a great time teaching portrait with the Zorn palette in Southern California last weekend, and now am planning to enjoy painting a bit of still life in preparation for my next workshop, at the beautiful Gateway Academy in St. Louis, June 21-23. There's still time to register, if you'd like to join me!

Silver Star

"Silver Star"
10 x 10 inches, oil on panel

Although this is pretty much a neutral, gray painting (my palette looked like a swatch set for picking out concrete floor finishes), my eye can still find a range of colors within. Blue, yellow, purple... can you see them?
