This painting was very much the result of a “go with the flow” process. By that, I mean that I had no intention at the beginning other than to put down different colors, see how they combine with each other, and use the brush and a palette knife to add shapes. The idea of a journey inward highlights the intuitive nature of the process. Just let it happen and try not to get your thoughts get in the way.
This piece is 12 by 12 inches; acrylic on canvas.
Original and prints available.
This painting is something new for me as it gets away from the geometric shapes I have been painting lately and their suggestion of urban forms. It is all about bright, swirly, vibrant colors without a clear reference to anything tangible except perhaps billowing clouds. As such, I think it evokes feelings of joy and optimism. This is the first of a series. 11 x 14 inches, acrylic on canvas.
Original goes for $150 here. Prints also available.
I have been working to evoke elements of a city, focusing on rectangular forms, bright colors, and something of a three dimensional presentation.
Acrylic applied with a palette knife.

This is was originally an experimental piece, but I liked how the colors blended as well as the texture and loose geometric patterns. Acrylic on acrylic paper.

I created this piece by laying down a thick layer of gesso in which I made patterns, textures, and various lines before it dried. Once it dried, I put down the pigment using thinned acrylics. The black ink strokes went on last while the acrylic layer was still a bit damp.

Something a bit new for me in terms of look at process as this is entirely digital. But I find that balance and harmony work here in much the same way as in some of my simple ink strokes pieces.
This piece is primarily digital. The foreground in black was created, after much experimentation, using a drawing program. The background is composed of ink washes on paper, then altered digitally. The inspiration is the simple elegance of Asian calligraphy, but it is fully abstract and not calligraphy.
Prints of this in various sizes and formats (canvas, framed paper, metal) are available here.
