Here are six new paintings

I've been using some of the products from Trimtex - where I will have a show this coming June. The middle piece has imprints of a wide lace trim above the zebras. The piece on the right has imprints from a narrower lace trim running up & down.
I used commercial "texture plates" to impress two cirlcle patterns into the plaster of the painting below. As you can see, I haven't yet added the third color layer to many of the paintings near the top of the photo below.

I think you're going to be coming up with some neat new effects with the Trimtex products. I've never heard of them before now.

The repeating circular pattern is mesmerizing, almost like Op art. It's neat to see the Op mixed with Pop, with the letters.

You used to use puzzle pieces, too, am I right?

Yes, puzzles used to be a big part of my entertainment (read therapy) on school nights - we had an 8 o'clock TV rule - no TV until 8pm and bed time at 9pm - when our kids were growing up! So I incorporated the finished puzzles into my artwork.

Paul, love your work. Up for an interview over at EmptyEasel.com? If so, drop me an email. AlyiceEdrich.net (for contact info)

I just have to ask... where do you sell your work? I did not notice a store link.
