Abstracted Palm Tree at Night

 

This is another palm tree painting…  I’ve done a number of them over the years and maybe because they remind of Hawaii, they are my favorite trees. I had a bit of fun abstracting this one within the background of the lights of a small town.

A Crazy Floral

Crazy Floral by Patrushka 650pix

I had an urge to put my fingers to some collage, as it’s been quite awhile. This time I used only paper which I had painted myself, to ensure that the colors won’t fade as they might with found images from magazines. It was rather fun to return to my old love, am hoping to try some cityscapes with this technique in the future.

Title: “Crazy Floral”

Size: 12 x 12″

Medium: Collage on birch wood panel (acrylic painted on archival paper), varnished

An Alley At Night In Florence, Italy

After leaving a bar late one night during travels in Italy, I stumbled upon this alley with cool yellow lighting and a blue lit window. Had to capture this little piece of a cityscape the best I could.

Sunset At Smith Tire

Smith Tires - Patrushka

Title: Smith Tire, (Once, We Were Here…)

Size: 30″ x 40″

Medium: Acrylic on canvas, unframed

This is a large piece inspired by an old tire shop I stumbled upon on one of my walks around New Orleans. It was peeling paint in all the right ways… Recently, I was so surprised to run across a bit about the owner of this wonderful place, via National Geographic –

“There was never any question from me about what to do after Katrina,” said Carroll Herbert, the owner of Smith Tire on the Ninth Ward’s St. Claude Avenue in 2006. “I came right back and opened up.”

This piece is also the beginning of a new series based on abandoned or forgotten places and vintage treasures of our collective past. The series is titled “Once, We Were Here…” – please check back for new additions with wonderfully aged places, pensive memories and overgrown architectural inspirations.

Running On Empty

Title: Running On Empty

( An abandoned gas station …)

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
Look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on, running on empty
Running on, running blind
Running on, running into the sun
But I’m running behind
