Mary Lea Bradley, 410 Untitled, acrylic on paper, 30 x 22 inches
This month’s painting is very dramatic in red and black but also has a touch of whimsy. If you want to add a dynamic and eye-catching abstract to your living or work space this is it!
Is this not the most beautiful barn you’ve ever seen? I fell in love with Dennis Hartley’s work after seeing it online at the Morrison Gallery.

I love the dimension created by parallel planes, but what I think is really great is the gorgeous coloration!

American painter Dennis Hartley is represented by fine art galleries from coast to coast. Originally an architect, he has spent twenty-five years in design related fields in Europe and the U.S., and has painted professionally since 1998. His media includes both acrylic and oil on canvas. The work often straddles the line between representational and abstract, incorporating ideas from ancient Chinese painting as well as from Western modernist movements of the twentieth century. Besides continuing to explore the American barn and other landscape motifs, his current work is also moving into the non-representational realm incorporating acrylic and mixed media.
