I'm a huge fan of Lee Mullican's paintings.
The current show at Marc Selwyn Gallery is a great collection of his works from the 50's.
Lee Mullican, Section from the Burlap Plain, 1951
40"x50", oil on canvas
You can also check out Lee Mullican's work in a book called An Abuntant Harvest of Sun that was published by LACMA a few years ago. It features images of the full range of his artwork and also studio and exhibition photos as well as images of Mullican's collection of Native American Art.
At the opening I ran into one of my favorite LA artists - Sandeep Mukherjee
Here is one of his paintings
Sandeep Mukherjee, Untitled, 2010
60"x120", Acrylic and acrylic ink on Duralene
