New Works....

Here are some new works....with more new paintings coming soon.



CHECK


This painting was done many months ago but I figured I should post it here...especially since I have given up the old traditional site and now going full tilt with the blog format. This painting "Near The End Of The War" is a 36x24 inch acrylic on canvas. Price for the original is $1200, while 12x18 prints are available for $20. This painting is a commentary on war(s) of our time. Read into it what you will. Just because you capture the king, that does not necessarly mean you win the game. At the edge of the chess board, Alfred is just trying to catch another fish...

Black & White Movie


Here is a new painting from my latest series combining two themes from the past: Movie Theaters & The Game of Chess. Many years ago I painted a series involving the interior of movie theaters - all with blank white screens. Now I am experimenting with painting images on the screen, and Chess pieces can be implied as analogies for many issues facing our world today. This is an acrylic painting on canvas, size 24x20, $800. Prints may be available soon.

Welcome......




Welcome everyone to the new format for my website. I'm painting more and more these days, so it really made more sense to switch over to this blog format. It is more interactive: you can comment on postings with a registered Google Account (it's free) and it's easy to post recent work while also keeping all previous posts in the archives for your viewing and reading pleasure. You'll notice that I no longer use derekgundy.com, and that the new web address to find me at is www.derekgundyart.com. Please update your bookmarks as derekgundy.com will soon be inactive....Thanks everyone for checking in...Here I am painting in the studio.
