P Is For Piranesi (1995), acrylic and pencil on wood panel, 24 x 48 inches.

A painting from graduate school at SUNY Albany's MFA program which quite unexpectedly became my favorite single-surface piece from the Shoppingtown gallery exhibition in June/July. Contemplating re-working the motif on a somewhat larger scale -- a rare example of my use of color, which was dropped soon after the piece was completed at the urgings of instructors who felt I relied too heavily on it. Only now am I allowing it back into my work after urgings from colleagues who said they found the ones with color so much more engaging. Ying/yang bro.
