Love this. The colors!!! Wish I could see it all in person... saw his show in Boston (in 1997/8?). I find this direction, the plein-air painting, but with the curious color twists, as engaging as an abstract painting, for me. It pulls the viewer in, involves all of us, makes us work. Thank you for the post!
