I am on a journey of exploration using line, color and movement. Much of my work right now is nonobjective and without a focal point. It is really an overall design. I go back to drawing from life or from photographs from time to time and that is satisfying too.
I am continuing to pursue my interest in working with ink and watercolor on paper. I am learning a lot about how the materials interact and how I can use layering, overlapping, color and line to create different moods.
I’m using Sumi Ink and watercolor to make these designs and serendipitous images.
I’ve changed this painting quite a bit from earlier version. I’m exploring abstraction and gesture and figures. This is 36” x 48” oil on canvas.
This piece is oil on wood. I started it a number of months ago and it has gone through many revisions. I’m using abstraction and some figure drawing. The thalo blue and green colors connect it to another figure painting I completed in late spring.
Here is a new abstract piece I’m trying to work out. It’s a more intuitive way of working than when making something with representation.
I am working hard to update my Artfinder site where my work is for sale. Please take a look and inquire or make me an offer! I am busy working on new paintings and drawings. Let me know what you think.
I created this by importing a drawing from my sketchbook into a graphic’s program and then working with layers.
This work is in pastel, charcoal and conte crayon. I really enjoy working on paper and with these materials. There is a directness that comes with pastel. The layers can add interesting textures and complexity.
