When Greg was little he drew cars. Then he did portraits. He still does beautiful pencil and ink drawings and wonderful larger pieces. Now he's doing abstracts!
These paintings are from his first gallery show. (He did a gallery showing last fall with other ArtPrize participants, but this was different. This was his!)
I never saw Greg as doing "Pink" but these abstracts, which chronicle elements of his relationship with a former girlfriend (don't ask), take the pink-black-white tones to the max and I wish I had a pink house so I could buy one!
He also had two pieces in the collection that were much colder. I'm particularly fond of the one on the left, but his mom bought it! Reminds me of a bird feeder in winter!
There were eight pieces in all and they showed me a different side of this kid -- no, this young man -- I've known for 16 years.
Greg, you've come a long way since you were nine! And I'm really proud of you!
