48" x 48" x 2.5" deep
Oil with palette knife on wrapped canvas
Sides are silver leaf


I keep trying to push the limits of what I can do with the palette knife, and I created this new stroke which I call my "swizzle stroke" while listening to jazz albums as I paint. I got so intrigued with this rhythmic stroke that I started a whole new series based on Jazz. I first do a lot of under painting and, while the paint is we,t I drag the knife loaded with more paint in a swizzle motion adding more paint and picking up the underlayers at the same time. The pigment is very thick. There are more than 20 pieces in this series in several main colors and ranging from 12"x12" up to 48"x48".
