Cerebral Fields I Experimental Series abstract ink & watercolors RLO Mar 2015

Watercolor and ink on cold pressed paper. This abstract used the interrupted flow technique on wet paper. I was attempting an analysis of the mind with this one called Cerebral Fields I and with its companion piece called Cerebral Fields II.

Avalanche Mardi Gras Series 13 ink acrylic wash abstract RLO Jan 2015.JPG

A salt technique was used with this imaginative work in ink and acrylic on paper. This is another in the Mardi Gras Series and highlights gold, green and purple colors. It is a bright, captivatingly simple image but most forceful in content! I would say it borders on being an heroic work.

Carnival Streams Mardi Gras Series 5 abstract acrylic painting RLO Jan 2015.JPG

Again, as part of the Mardi Gras Series I used gold, purple and green in a liquid acrylic and ink work on cold pressed paper of 36 x 50 ems. I believe this work makes the most effective use of this color combination. So it should feel like Mardi Gras from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes.

This is liquid acrylic and inks work (36 x 50 cms) on cold pressed paper that primarily used the Mardi Gras colors of green, gold and purple. A salt technique was also used in the lower half of the image. I call it masked as that that was my immediate reaction to this free form abstract work.

Salseros ink and acrylic painting Experimental Series RLO Mar 2015.JPG

This work on medium-sized canvas was done in colored inks and fluid acrylic paint. I was studying salsa dancing at the time and tried to convey a syncopated Latin beat with this abstract work, as in one, two, three, ahh ....

Crayon Jungle abstract in ink and marker Experimental Series RLO Mar 201 5.JPG

At started by using masking fluid to cover the trees, bushes and tangled growth of this bright abstract crayon jungle. I then applied colored inks and watercolor to flush out this lush and almost glowing image before removing the masking fluid and bringing in the other colors. Cold pressed paper of 36 x 50 cms was used for this jungle abstract. Tarzan would love it.

Fire in the Belly abstract ink RLO Mar 2015.JPG

This work was done on a large canvas of about 3x4 feet in size. I used inks and markers to bring out the extent of contortions present in this twisting design. I was thinking of the vital need for passion in all that we do and hope I communicated that in this original work.

Enfolding Universes abstract RLO April 2015.JPG

Enfolding Universes abstract RLO April 2015.JPG

I attempted to fold two separate universes together in this work. I was thinking of opposing forces colliding and producing a glowing red that simply overcame all differences. This was done with colored inks and watercolor in the background after an application of gauze near the center.

Mardi Gras Forever flow ink and acrylic painting RLO Feb 2015.JPG

Liquid acrylics and ink was used on cold pressed paper, along with a flow technique (35 x 50 cms). It is highly abstract but I can´t help but seeing a furious gorilla. That is a fun element in this this type of abstract. Enjoy!

Fat Tuesday acrylic painting on paper Mardi Gras Series 12 RLO Feb 2015.JPG

I used colored inks, watercolors and salt to produce this work I called Fat Tuesday. An interrupted flow technique was used as well as some tooth picks to form the structure of the work. It is an experimental piece (35 x 50 cms) and I thought a highly successful one using the official colors of New Orleans´ Mardi Gras, i.e. fat Tuesday.
