Update On One Brush Technique

SOL LUCKMAN

So far 2013 has been a very rewarding year in terms of my expressionistic painting with ink on paper using an original method I call One Brush Technique.

Last month I sold a large print of BLUE KACHINA, one of my personal favorites, on Fine Art America.

In addition, the sister painting to this piece, RED KACHINA, won 3rd Place in April's peer voting in the Expressionism Genre on Noenga, a popular global art platform featuring the work of many highly gifted artists.

A Rare Artistic Trifecta

Sol Luckman

trifecta: a variation of the perfecta in which a bettor wins by selecting the first three finishers of a race in the correct order of finish (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

In Noenga Artist Community's October peer voting contest, my ink-on-paper painting BORREGO BADLANDS won 1st Place for Technique. Being my first 1st Place finish on Noenga, an international website featuring some really gifted artists, this would have been quite gratifying by itself.

But then, I also learned that another of my pieces, TUFAS IN THE...
