"Chinatown (Red)," 2018-2019 25x28 inches oil/linen I finished this yesterday. It's going to a collector in NJ. How many water towers can you count? The green dome is the "Police Building" on Lafayette where I worked for a few days in 1989 when I was a grad student at Parsons. This view is from a hotel on the Bowery looking west. I think I'll put this in the show for the first two days. Save the date. My first gallery exhibit in seven years.

This is a detail of something I'm working on. I get a lot of questions about teaching a color class or questions about how I use color. I think it's important that every shape and every color in the painting matter to you. You have to care about the gray and the tan and the white just as much as you care about the green. Every touch of paint is a color whether it is saturated or dull. Forget "primaries" and "neutrals" or any other categories. Try to just look without naming colors and things. Don't try to be realistic when you paint. Let the color build the space. And the green can never be the one that came out of the tube, or one you were taught to mix. It has to be the right green that you find speaks to the other colors or is impacted by the other colors in a way that is active and mysterious. Paint and draw the space in between things. Consider the Moon Illusion. That's all I could teach. Have a good weekend.
