Description Acrylic on paper, 22' x 14', June, 2007.
In June, 2007, my wife and I went to a painting workshop in Caunes, a small village in the southwest of France. Our teacher was the artist Glen Moriwaki. It was great working with him; he brought my art to a new level.
This was the first painting I did in Caunes; a yellow lawn-couch on the grass outside our group studio.
So as to make it easier to bring the paintings home, I worked mostly with acrylic on paper at the workshop. I like the smoothness of the paper painting surface, but when you're done it's a drag to have to frame the thing. The nice thing about canvases is that I can paint on the edges, and then it doesn't really need a frame.
I sold this painting to a friend of mine after a show I had in the Live Worms gallery in San Francisco in Fall, 2007.
