November 2018: Tiny "Fog Rothko" pieces

In 1997-1998 I worked on a series of 24” x 16” paintings under the heading “Pacific,” though in reality I referred to them as my Fog Rothkos. Each day on leaving the house I would look west to Ocean Beach and memorize three colors: sky, fog, water.

When I was deciding on small pieces to make for my Open Studio, the little 5” x 2.5 - 3” Claybord samples I had recalled the dimensions of the Pacific series. These are two of the tiny paintings I made. They were a lot of fun!
