As I mentioned in my last post, I am going to post two paintings each day contained in my Painting From "The Zone" Book...from one to twenty-nine, along with the quotations I chose for each. The book is 6"x8" printed on black semi-gloss paper. It is stunning and I'm happy with it. There wasn't as much room for text as I'd like so the quotes had to be printed in a very small font but most persons have commented that it didn't matter to them.

Below is the introductory page"
About This Book:
"The paintings in this book are an ongoing series. After many years of working with oil on canvas in a radically different style, I began experimenting with water based media, painting spontaneously, moment to moment, with 'nothing in mind.'

Discovering this new spontaneous and intuitive process of painting has been one of the highlights in my creative journey. I number these paintings rather than giving them titles. Assigning titles would reduce them to suggestion of interpretation and limit their impact and the viewers imagination.

I've arranged the paintings in the order in which they were created to show the progression and evolution of this body of work."

If you are interested in purchasing a copy, please email me for details (link below)

Incidentally, I have not exhibited these paintings anywhere yet. I had been reluctant to sell them. I've changed my mind about that recently...

I hope you enjoy my journey into "The Zone."
That's it for today folks...
