This is beautiful! I love the colors! Your work has almost a hypnotic quality to it, I can get lost in the patterns.

How on earth do you get such nice blending using canvas as your support? When I try to use canvas, the paint just sinks right in to the gessoed surface and it ends up looking rough.

Amazing as usual. Happy to see Elmer's make a reappearance.

Thanks Rahina!

Carol, it could be the gessoed surface or it could be the paint...not sure. Maybe try a different brand of each??

Thanks David!

A wonderful painting. The colors are perfect. Love the point of view. Great work Todd.

A show-stopper. The way the light filters through the blue glass, and is also refracted on top, with the strong contrasting darker lines, strong tight composition, and punch of color, makes it one of my all-time fav.of yours!
