From the Sketch Pad
David is currently at work on his next painting of a Memphis blues band. Back in March of 2014, David took a road trip to Memphis, TN and visited the world-famous Beale Street in search of the authentic Mississippi delta blues sound. He went in for a beer at the Blues Hall Juke Joint and took in the music and atmosphere. This painting is a result of that experience. This watercolor continues David’s exploration of musical themes in his work. Earlier paintings such as “New Orleans Brass Band Jazz” and “La Vida de Musica” paved the way for this new painting.
David is selling merchandise such as T-shirts, Pillows, Lampshades, iPhone cases, Coffee Mugs, Postcards and more at his online “marcoimage” Zazzle store. The store features imagery from many of his abstract paintings and designs with subjects such as music, nature, sports and the human figure. Stop on by for a visit!

David Ralph’s newest painting, finished last month and titled “Tropic Breeze”, is now available as giclee prints on FineArtAmerica. The original watercolor is on sale for $250 on the Etsy “marcoimage” shop.
David Ralph, founder and owner of the imaging and conceptual company Marco Image & Concept, is a contemporary artist and illustrator who lives in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA. About ten years ago, David had a vision to create a series of abstract watercolor paintings that explored the female figure through curve, line, and a composition of varying shapes of color, value, and pattern. This exploration led to a distinctive style that has shaped David’s unique brand of painting and illustration since. In trying to describe and categorize his style of art, David Ralph has coined the term “Geoformism”. According to David, Geoformism is defined as a style of contemporary abstract art that focuses on the form of a subject (or object) and its underlying geometric essence. It contains elements of both geometric abstraction and figurative realism. Today, David continues to create abstract compositions of the female figure as well as other themes of interest such as nature, music, people and sports.
