Art: Black & White

I currently have two large canvases leaning against my office wall waiting for me to¬†paint. My parents commissioned me. (Can I pretend it’s a real art gig?). While¬†I’m not quite ready to paint them (lack of free time as of late), I am ready to share some of the interesting pieces¬†art I’ve been eyeing lately.

There’s more black than white in most of these pieces,¬†and¬†I love how different they are from one another. The “top secret” piece is so amusing (to me, anyway).
