A New Idea: Small Figuratives

Slowly, since the summer, I've been  tinkering and racking my brain trying to come up with ways to make small paintings I enjoy doing and, subject wise, hold my interest.  Here's a selection of what I've come up with.

Either I've managed to sell them (thanks J and F&G) or they're hanging in different venues.  They're all 25cm x 25cm on panel and incorporate a bunch of media: acrylic, oil, bitumen, collage, graphite...

What do you think?



  1. Favorite picks: second, third, and fourth.

  2. I was lucky enough to get one of these for Christmas! Love them.

  3. They're punchy and humorous at the same time. E.g., the one of the kids playing (on a skating rink?) captures the energy of childhood without a hint of sentimentality. If you put them in another show, I would hang them together, either in a grid or a single line. That way, they won't get "lost" on a big wall space, as may happen if they're hung individually.

  4. Thanks everyone! I take your tip on grouping pieces, Bob.
