This is the second of two cupboard door paintings I have done for the Door Show at Fraker/Scott Gallery in August. The color in the first image is wrong on the inner border. It is not that yellow. I posted a separate image of the plaster tiles so that you can see them more clearly.
You should come see this show as a number of the artists are painting on full size doors. I didn't think all my new parts were up to the challenge, so went with cupboard doors from my remodeled kitchen.

Today is the end of week six since my knee replacement, and I am doing well though still recuperating. Don and I have been discussing whether or not it makes sense for me to have the second knee surgery in October, since it would be my fourth surgery in 13 months. I think I may need to take some time off before having the next one! Luckily I was at least inspired to paint after this most recent one.
I continue to paint abstract landscapes, some more abstract than others. The above are a couple of the most recent pieces I finished.

Well, the abstract landscape idea has stuck with me, so I am posting a couple of the newest ones. I have also been working on three pieces that I am painting on old cabinet doors left from our kitchen remodel. They are something I wanted to do for the Door themed show at Fraker/Scott Gallery that is coming up soon. I only have one done and I have posted it here for you to see. At one point I dragged out my old encaustics, which I have not used for a couple years, and used wax on the door. It did not go well, however, and I had to remove all of it. Now that was a mess, but I am used to cleaning up messes.
