I'm really in love with Tessar's work in this show... especially "One Place You Can Find Me" and "Plum," which are so gorgeous and dreamlike. His palette in these pieces is really rich and dark, but still retains his signature muted tones and a subtle sense of glow.
If you haven't seen the great interview he gave me last week, check it out here.
I'm surprised some of these are still available, especially the lower priced ones.
Yeh so am I. I wish I didnt have to pay for tuition soon or else I would grab one. His work is bound to go up soon, so I might add one of his paintings into the "Regrets" thread since I know this will be one of mine.
