This is a painter that I'm into now. It is by Elmer Bishoff, he was a Bay Area Abstract Expressionist/ Figurative painter. I love his brush stroke and colour palette. Here is a link to a little bio on him and an interesting little fact that I included below!
Bischoff's lifelong residency in the Bay Area would be interrupted only by a three-year teaching engagement at Yuba College in Marysville, California after he had resigned in protest from CSFA following Hassel Smith's dismissal. This would be an intensely productive period, and his return to San Francisco in 1956 would be followed in 1957 by a seminal group exhibit at the Oakland Art Museum
