Hi gang...

Crossposted from the abstract forum ....

I was busy in the studio today (my music studio, not my art studio) and had some time in between sessions. FWIW, I am mastering down a demo of our own local blues hero, Larry Seiler (lseiler). :D

At any rate, here is the result - an interesting abstract piece. The photo isn't really great - will take some better ones tomorrow (in better light) and repost here. The colors in this first shot appear a bit flat.

"2x4: A Tribute", 18x24, oil on canvas (my first painting done solely with a palette knife!)

I call it "2x4" in tribute to the 2 towers and 4 planes.

as I said in the abstract forum...
I really like this Scott....the colours set a mood that hard to describe..and a fine example of how abstract art can say it like nothing else can..

Thanks for the kind words, gang.

It is unfortunate that sometimes it takes an extraordinary event to bring out certain creative emotions ... :(

Cheers.
Scott

Very moving in it's simplicity. Beautiful work with the knife.

It's not at all abstract to me. Very moving.

Not sure if clappy guy is appropriate here, since this is such a somber subject, but you definately have applause from me.
