Tongue in Cheek

20" x 16", oil on canvas, 2007

This Echoes series turned out to be pretty much the opposite of my initial conception (more than five years ago) of a rather ambitious project called Operation: Little Echoes. Instead of a dozen or so large oil paintings which are abstractions of the original figurative watercolours, I planned to do numerous watercolour paintings which would have been simply miniatures of the larger originals --with maybe some colour changes in the backgrounds and maybe multiples of certain paintings.

Clearly, I like this idea better.

This one's my abstraction of AW-015.
