Red Violet


14 x 11 inches
oil on linen

In the last few weeks, I've been trying to push some larger paintings along.  (I am keeping them to myself for now.)  When I hit an impasse on the major work, I tend to start side projects with tend to get abandoned when I find a solution.   The false monochromes were a side project that haven't gone away, but this is one that was cast aside and reworked countless times.  Although I find it hard to believe, it appears I started it five years ago.   The resulting color scheme is obviously far from a monochrome but, whatever it is, it is finished.
