Three New Paintings

This month I am mentoring a medical student on a special elective. She was a studio art major in college and arranged with the medical school Dean to have a month-long senior year elective during which she would work on medically related paintings. She is in the middle of interviews for her residency and is having a little trouble finding time to get into the painting work, particularly because her planned work is very ambitious. I have been pushing her to focus on smaller projects that more reasonably fit her interview schedule. It occurred to me that I should follow my own advice and get busy, hence the three related paintings here, all done in the past few days. These paintings are acrylic on paper and are all about 8 and ½ inches square.

Last Vacation Painting

Toward the end of August I was experimenting with new forms and techniques that led to a lot of interesting missteps, but on August 31, the last day of my vacation, I made this painting. I am pleased with it and hope others will like it too.

Two more new paintings

Here are two more new paintings. Ha Ha This A-Way is acrylic on canvas and 30 x 30 inches. Easy Way Out is acrylic on paper and a little over 9 inches square. The decent weather has enabled me to do a good deal of painting on our little back porch surrounded by birds and a very busy chipmunk.

Two New Paintings, August, 2015

Here are two more new paintings - one little blue one on paper (about six inches square) and one larger, as you can see for yourself from the photograph, on canvas. Both are acrylic.

Three New Paintings

On July 1, after forty-two years as a full-time faculty member at Temple University School of Medicine, I began to work half-time and will probably do so for the next three years before retiring.  For many years I have taken vacation in August and used a good deal of that time to paint, but this year I was able to devote time to painting in the second half of July.  The three paintings seen here are the product of that July time.  These are small works, acrylic on paper, and measure a little over nine inches square.

Two Paintings for the New Year

Bennett says: "Here are two paintings for the New Year. You will note that the background stripes are painted free hand. I plan to do more in this direction."
