it's nice and sweet

Delivered a triptych (three paintings than can hang together as one image) to friends of ours the other night. They have a new/remodelled home that is all big space and clean lines -- so I hope this textured, rough-and-ready painting is a good fit by way of contrast (as I worked on it, I had in mind the kind of worn-away mural you would find at a seaside). The place names on the bather's caps are some of the cities that our friends have lived in.

it's nice and sweet, mixed media on cradled wood panel; 60 x 40 x 1.5 inches; triptych; the string series continues.

While I'm here: artstream studios still has paintings of mine for sale and, as always with my work, they really are priced to *sell*. Also: the proprietor of the gallery, Susan Schwake, has a wonderful art-instruction book coming out soon, called Art Lab for Kids, and I'll have more on that later.


  1. Not to gush but I truly truly LOVE this set! Lucky ducks those friends of yours.

  2. Beautiful! Great dashes of color.

  3. We are in love with these paintings....they are perfect for our house, which I like to think of as modern meets east coast.

    Can't wait to get them on the wall.

  4. Thank you everyone -- and I'm really glad you like them, J + J. I think they'll look great in your space.

  5. this is a wonderful piece of work DJ - really wonderful :)

  6. What a fantastic piece (or pieces). The new owners are lucky to have an artist friend, and you are lucky to have friends that love your art.
