New Painting

Untitled, 18" x 30", acrylic and marker on canvas.  This painting was an exercise in frustrated perfectionism.   The shapes weren't turning out the way I wanted them. I've been wanting to do more minimal paintings, and I keep seeing strange shapes in my head.  I want this work to look sort of mid-century but in very current colors.  I can't stop thinking about Barbara Novak's apartment in Down with Love, and I want to create art that would live very comfortably there.  I'll need to break down and buy an easel soon.  I can't quite get the precision I want while painting on the floor.
