The way you use color is also reminiscent of one of my favorite painters– Fairfield Porter. Do you know his work? If not you might like his paintings. LikeLike julie harms – Author January 20, 2013 Thanks for sharing this with me. I didn’t know who Porter was until I googled him this afternoon. It really does seem familiar with what I do. It’s nice to know that there are other artists sharing the same vision. LikeLike Mike Schultz Paintings February 3, 2013 I like “My Little Murano” that you just posted. I think Fairfield Porter is a painter’s painter. He’s one of those artists who when I look at his work I feel like there is always so much more to learn about the craft. Plus, he was painting like that when when everyone else was doing abstract expressionism. I went to college literally right across the street from this painting, which I don’t think I even understood until years later. But it is this painting of his was reminiscent to me of your Coffee break painting with the nice blocks of full color. Anyway, happy painting! http://www.nelson-atkins.org/art/exhibitionspast.cfm?id=10 LikeLike julie harms – Author February 4, 2013 Hi Mike, Thank you for sharing this piece of memory.
