FULL MOON PAINTINGS

The Full Moon  Paintings came about in 1997 when I was erasing a days abstract oil painting with a rag and some turpentine. When almost finished I could see that the remaining paint on the panel had a strong resemblance to an animal. It was on a full moon.  Later while doing a Native American full moon ceremony the idea came to me to do one of these "subtracting paintings" every full moon for one year.  Nine of the thirteen paintings are pictured below.
