Striped Still life

Well, I was selected for the jury as I expected and we had the whole thing finished by lunch, which left the afternoon, so I had some time to play. I have a new book on Howard Hodgkin, fabulous British abstract painter, and he concerns himself with the question of placement which is interesting to me and also the biggest most delicious element of all, color. So I moved some forms around in the manner of H.H. and went at it. Exhilarating actually, not to be so confined to realism, and to keep the forms very basic, looking for the tension in the mix.
