"Acid"  (acrylic on canvas, 18x22" Feb 2012
When this idea came to mind, I wanted to play on a pre-stretched canvas with four basic colors:  red, black, tan, and brown.  I wasn't sure how stark and cold and "other-worldly" this would appear to others, but it was created for my development.  I was playing and exploring options!  While it was an experiment, I was surprisingly pleased with the results.  In contrast to its corrosive nature, it seemed appropriate to go "green" for this piece by re-using window trim that had been removed from my loft to create my own frame... leaving its nicks and nail holes untouched.  I painted it in a bold red.  The overall effect was rather striking!  -Erico
