Black Tie


Black Tie
Oil on gessoed board
$130
This is one of those twisty tie things used for holding electrical cables and other miscellaneous whatnot together. I just liked the shape it made with it's cast shadow as counterpoint.

  1. Y'know, I think it takes a lot of balls to both paint and post this work.

    It is deceptively simple, yet shows strong observational skills. It certainly raises the lowly twist tie to a new level.

    Nice Job!

  2. I agree with Jason....you've turned something so simple and completely overlooked into a thing of beauty.

  5. I love it. This reminds me of those paintings of vine charcoal that you did about a year ago.
