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.
Fourth in the series, this painting uses a much more saturated color palette. In all of these paintings there is a very intuitive process where I start with one color and some shapes and then add others. Despite a lot of light color, this one suggests to me a city at night. Acrylic on a 11 x 14 inch canvas.
This one goes for $140 plus shipping. Order here. See print options here.
This is the second painting in the urban patterns series. It is very different from the first, but still has the suggestive geometric shapes of urban forms. This acrylic painting is on a 11 by 14 inch canvas and is priced at $140 plus shipping and handling. You can buy it here. Metal, canvas, and paper prints can also be acquired at this link.
This series (more to come) is inspired by the geometric shapes of our urban environment. See also Urban Interiors and the Cityscape paintings.

In creating this painting, I did not set out with an idea in mind. Rather certain forms with vertical and horizontal lines and boundaries took shape, largely at the beginning. I believe these shapes come from memories I have of small urban spaces: narrow streets and alleys–perhaps from Cairo Egypt. The textures, colors, and imprecise forms suggest old structures that have faded or been worn down over time. But this is just my interpretation. It is very abstract and therefore open to the viewer’s own experience. What do you see?

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.

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.
