Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter A little of this, a little of that...

All of these are oil on gessoed panel. The first is of my wife, 8 x 10", the second is 18 x 24" (for those afflicted by golf, it's that time of year) and the last two are small 8 x 10"s of my kids at the shore (i had x posted these latter two recently in oil forum). I know i am all over the map here and feeling a bit rudderless (or rather free, depending on ones perspective). Any comments very appreciated. --Aurelio

What a wide range of paintings- in colour, format, style and subject. I love the rich colours, especially.
You are certainly versatile!

Good stuff, all of them. I do love the first one, very interesting palette and atmosphere to it. The negative space is so beautifully used there.

I am impressed by all of them. The golf one is particularly fascinating--one could spend a long time looking at it--so much to see. BTW--sorry to hear about the golfing affliction. I wish you a speedy recovery. It is a terrible illness--a good walk, ruined, indeed!

Interesting paintings, I particularly like the second. The last one I find powerful but maybe for the wrong reasons: the strokes towards the centre seem really ominous to me foretelling something to come. Maybe it is watching too many horror films.

Re: A little of this, a little of that...

Thank you all for your encouraging remarks and thoughts about these. Apart from other reasons for preference, I think the 2nd and 3rd might appeal a bit more for the harmonic effect of the strongly orange-toned panels which (under)cover a multitude of sins Thank you again! --Aurelio
