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.
This image is a variation on the theme in Altered Vision. Again, the focus is on geometric shapes that suggest urban structures as well as more purely abstract forms. As in the first piece, there are many overlapping shapes and colors. Interestingly, this painting started out in a “different place” from its predecessor, but as I worked on both of them together, they converged, ending up with many similar characteristics and a unified look.

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.

This piece suggests the unknown: perhaps an inner space or another world. Watercolor washes and ink on mixmedia stock.
Available as a canvas or metallic print.
Ink and watercolor on scuffed and scored gesso. The aim of this image was to create something of a third dimension to the colors and ink and how they interact on the surface.

This is not a photo of ice, but the textures, cool colors and other effects give it an icy feel.
