Meditation Series: (8/8) Watching the Parking Lot in LA (2021)

Today’s sketch makes use of various elements of the original theme, but is quite a departure from its structure. This composition is an introspection rather than outward look at a parking lot.

Meditation Series: (7/8) Black Mirror Building, Bryant Park, NYC (1991)

I went crazy on this one, warping the space and ignoring color conventions. I think it works, though. Please visit my Etsy shop for my artwork for sale inspired by my autistic brother Mike at: My other artwork for sale is at:

Meditation Series: Fantasy on a Street Construction Site – Other Palette (2023)

I tried some new colors and painted #6 image on my original Fantasy on a Street Construction Site matrix of 8 sketches. I used some metallic watercolors and highly saturated colors from a couple of new travel watercolor sets.

Line Fantasy

I’ve seen red lines that delineate fire zones, or on curbs that interface between sidewalk and parking lot; blue lines that are usually found in handicapped spaces. yellow lines that divide one lane of traffic from another.

Rope Trick – Distal End

This composition is a transverse view of the cloud into which the Indian Rope Trickster ascends. The region above the clouds appears to be a crucible. It is not clear if said tricksters are aware of what awaits. Perhaps it is a hot meal.

Leaf Fantasy

This is another composition in which I introduced a streak of quinacridone burnt orange into a field of ultramarine blue. I really love the rust/green/yellow hue that results. My first, steady stroke into the wet ultramarine diffused away from the center to create a narrow, wedge-shaped leaf, or root-like image. (I proceeded to paint another […]

Mottled Sky Fantasy

I know I once saw a sky something like the one I painted below. I scoured my photo files for evidence of that, to no avail. I’ve seen patterns of clouds at the cusp of dark. Their bottoms reflected the sun below the horizon while their tops were cool with evening colors. My abstract suggests […]
