Yes, I include the abbreviated title, along with the signature and date on the back.

Love the name. Do you include the title on the painting (ie. back)?

Beau Clinton 9/13/2012 | 7:41 PM

It stands for You Tell Me About Your Dreams. That series was a lot of fun to paint, even though it took so long to complete, and is almost sold out. Thanks for your interest!

I just received Figures in a Landscape and I love it. The colors are wonderful. It is such a dramatic painting and it looks great in the space I had picked for it. I couldn't be more pleased.

I feel very fortunate to have your painting Untitled 10 in my home. With its rich colors and mysterious depths and shadows, I know that I will enjoy contemplating this treasure for years to come.

thanks qi peng! it's very motivational to hear things like that.

So incredible! Watts is a fabulous historical painter whose brushwork veers between expressionism and conceptual subject matter (lot of "gay" subtexts can be red) just like a Gerhard Richter. Wonderful work. Highly recommended. And good to know that he likes Hernan Bas' stuff too.

Comments About This Piece

This series developed out of a desire to abstract the idea of space, as well as to combine figurative elements with the background. I am interested in how spaces intersect in our memory, and these works draw on overlapping figurative forms to convey that. I also was influenced by the color palette and line work of Amy Sillman after seeing her retrospective at Bard College last year. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
