Ollie’s Pizza, Loretta Sleeping and Woman with a Camcorder.
In this painting, I limited my palette to a harmony of red and grey; the tones of red on the left side (and the background) are balanced with the grey tones on the right. The woman’s black mask and the man’s red mask create a counterpoint. I initially thought to use more colors, but as I went along, the blues and greens and yellows that I tried never seemed right.
This painting began with a quick sketch – a doodle really – of a woman wearing a pair of peacock feathers … my private homage to a beautiful exhibition at the Hudson River Museum last Fall on the theme of the peacock in art.
