Archives part 2
This is 14 x 18.
A larger 18x24 size painting finished in 1974.
This is a small 6 x 8 painting. Probably the result of having some excess paint on the palette that "needed to be used up."
The tennis shoes were the result of a minimalist palette approach using primarily black, yellow, and white. The next painting in the shoe series had my husband's, our daughter's, and my sandals. When our second child was born, there was no time to paint anything, so the "series" remains incomplete. This one is 16 x 20 inches.
I believe at the time this one was painted, Richard Diebenkorn was a favorite painter. I still like the way he lays out his subject matter --- in an abstract, geometric kind of way. This is 16 x 20 inches.
