Tractor Beam of Love...
For a while there, my paintings were getting too damned colorful. I'd start out going nuts and then spend hours trying to reel it in and make it work. I decided to paint a series of paintings with a limited palette of black, white and raw sienna. Here's how they turned out.
I did this painting for my Wife on occasion of our 20th anniversary. I'm not sure what all the symbolism represents, but I'm hoping all will be revealed in time....
Totem- I had these weird shaped boards that just had to be used...

Ltd palette works well. Science of the Unexpected's a fave. Gameboy Wasting Your Life? Shouldn't that be 'The Internet'?...

Great work Hal. I especially love the humour and looseness of your line. Seeing your work has been an inspiration. Good luck with everything. Sincerely, Ariel Villaverde www.sketchees.blogspot.com

Thanks for all the imput, folks both before and after the melt. I've really had a blast doing these. Perhaps Guston was on to something with the black, white and red.
