This past Saturday I had the pleasure of working with Bob Rankin at the Art of the Carolinas. Bob is an immensely talented artist and is a huge patron of the arts in Raleigh. In the three hours or so he spent painting on Saturday morning he completed two 30x40" works. The first (which is not seen in this picture) is an abstract landscape of what I think is a North Carolina Beach scene. The second is the painting shown in this picture.
Like me, Bob likes to work in Matisse Acrylics. You can see some of the Southern Ocean Blue in the center of this work. A brilliant color, a great painting and a great artist!
