Painting Number 4

A little behind the scenes note on this painting, it is a REALLY hard painting to photograph.  I used pure white for the background - (click here if you'd like to see a close-up of the white impasto on my facebook page) and when the image is exposed for pure white the color fades away.  This isn't the best reproduction of it, but there will be a better reproduction of it on my website in early June.  Just a note - this painting was painted using only three colors, plus black and white.   Can anyone guess which colors - here's a hint, they're made by Lukas. . .


  1. You can make them as small or as large as you prefer. Place the formed crab cakes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate them for about 30 minutes.

  2. This painting is truly mesmerizing! The use of colors and abstract forms creates a sense of depth and emotion that captivates the viewer. Jonathan, could you share more about your inspiration for this piece? I'd love to understand the story behind the artwork.

  3. Painters are presented with a blank canvas that represents infinite possibilities when they work on a background of pure white. This method makes the brushstrokes and colour brightness pop, making every part stand out sharply against the background's simplicity.
