5th installment of the isbp: kirby grimes


I know pretty much nothing about Kirby Grimes beyond what he writes here. I really like this painting. Makes me wonder what his architectural work is like...
Thanks, Kirby. I like your colors, too!


�architecture is my 'work'
painting is my pleasure,
to experiment w/pigments in acrylic base &
explore my thoughts about colors.
like Mondrian, i'm not trying to make pictures,
just trying to find things out.
i like his chrysanthemum dwgs.& trees.
�my 'studio' is the bedroom floor;
a big mess.�
i sleep next to the open window.
i do some grids also.
this is a challenge for me
to show & tell.
thanks. i like your subtle colors.

Hi PattyNubs!

Thanks for reading the blog. I like Mr. Grimes' work too! Unfortunately, Kirby doesn't have a web presence that I'm aware of, but I'll see if I can connect you with him. Please send me your contact info to my email pfarrell13@comcast.net if you like.

Kirby Grimes designed my grandparents' old house, located on Culross Drive in Rocky Point, NY. It was a beautiful house.
