I've painted and drawn swimming pools for a few years now but have recently started a new series mixing this subject matter with a gold and black color palette.
Gold and black is one of my favorite color schemes currently, conjuring up thoughts of high end fashion and design, fame and fortune. There is an inherent glamor when the two pair up, a feeling of luxurious living that swimming in a crisp clean pool makes me feel (no matter how much money I might currently have).
Below is one of about six or seven that I'm in the process of making for an upcoming show I have in Nashville. More to come...
