Abstract Black and White Oil painting #13

 Abstract black and white  oil painting #13  is a single canvas work where the paint seems confined at the top yet seeks to expand to the edges.

I used the  blank canvas  as a starting point,thick black paint was applied at the top which allowed the  paint to drip  so  this was the beginning of  this painting.

As the paint dripped I used my brushes to guide the paint,creating branches and shadows.

Gravity completes this oil painting creating perhaps a visual map,a black and white constellation of stars. 

Why? My creative process!

So I use  Color,line and space and gravity

Because I think about beginnings and endings of any moment and that  exact moment of the beginning and the end.

This painting took 2 weeks to complete and the  process includes "stretching" the canvas over the wood frame.But I do not use "Pre-stretched canvas and  no sketches were done.

I use a variety of different brushes and oil colors.How many?Over 50 different types and styles of brushes.How many tubes of oil paint? Over  100 different tubes!This creates a moment in time.

Above the horizon,black paint gravitates into the white landscape,branching into shadowy shades of grey 

 Drips of color ,shapes and lines of shades of Grey Abstract black and White  oil painting.The subtraction of color reveals the beauty of black,white and grey.

I do not make copies of my paintings.

No limited copies and no other similar.

There is only only one original unique modern work ,monochrome,detail pictures reveal vertical drips of paint.
