The Grey Sun - paintings - February 2014

The Grey Sun is a collection of paintings that I made from November to now. They are inspired by the cold and the winter, I worked with black, white and grey mainly, letting some greens and blues appear in some of the images. Some bare trees and a lot of stars. The sun is a star and the winter is grey. This stars keep appearing in the space, repeating themselves .
Acrylic paint on canvas and plywood.

I’m showing them for the month of February at Coffee House 5 on the corner of N Killingsworth and Albina (across the street from PCC). The place is open 7 days a week till 8 pm (6pm on Sundays).
Pieces are for sale and have a price but you can make me a different offer if you really want one!
