Tuesday Night is one of my latest spray acrylic paintings. The round form continues to be a hallmark of my art. I love the rhythm and the flow of the round object or form and the movement that it implies. In this painting I injected a fair amount of dark neutral colors which I think creates a nice balance with the brighter colors. Red is definitely the star here, which is one of my favorite hues. The pattern in the large red shape derives from a dark pattern underneath which I didn't really intentionally intend for it to show through as I painted over it with red, but I think it adds a really great sense of depth and visual texture.

Los Angeles Art Association

Last year about this time I was accepted into The Los Angeles Art Association. This institution has been around for 90 years and is instrumental in nurturing an artist's career trajectory. From critique groups, of which I'm a member of one, to numerous art exhibits at its Gallery 825 in West Hollywood, CA, to seminars several times a year that educate the artist about the art world, collectors, and personal growth as an artist, I highly recommend this organization to any artist that is interested in artistic growth. LAAA, as it is known, has several Membership Drives every year where the artist can submit their art, and if accepted, they will have access to its many benefits. The seminars are available to non-members as well.

Attached is their website with all of the contact information.
