"abstract painting in the foothills"
I FIND THE ACT OF FILLING A CANVAS THERAPEUTIC - PROCESSING THOUGHTS WITH A PAINT BRUSH, MOST OF THE TIME WITHOUT EXPECTATION OF A CERTAIN RESULT. MY SPIRIT LAID OUT IN PAINT. WITH THAT KIND OF FREEDOM IN MIND, I UTILIZE VARIOUS MATERIALS AND MEDIUMS TO ACCOMPLISH HEAVY TEXTURES AND COMPLEX LAYERS FOR RICH EXPRESSIONS OF CONTRAST, DEPTH AND ELEGANCE. MY WORK BECOMES SOFTER AS I GO. BLURRY, EVEN, LIKE MEMORIES OR LANDSCAPES SEEN IN THE FAR OFF DISTANCE - NO REALISTIC DETAIL, NO WORRY WITH ACCURACY. JUST THE REMNANT OF THE IDEA OF WHAT WAS SEEN - THE STRIPPED BEAUTY OF IT.

MY PIECES ARE ABSTRACT INTERPRETATIONS OF ONE THING OR ANOTHER: A LOFTY IMAGINATION, EMOTIONS EVOKED BY AN EXPERIENCE, MY NATURAL ENVIRONMENT UP HERE IN THE FOOTHILLS, OR THE PLACE I COME FROM. YOU’LL NOTICE AN AVID USE OF NEUTRAL TONES - REFLECTIVE OF THUNDERSTORMS, BEACH SAND, RIVER ROCK, HARDWOODS, MUD OR MOUNTAIN FOG; A MIX OF UPBRINGING AND PRESENT SURROUNDINGS. AND WHERE BRIGHT COLORS ARE PRESENT, THEY REMAIN EARTH RELATED: FIREY SKIES, SOUTHERN CLAY, EVERGREENS OR FRUIT.

SELF TAUGHT AND ALWAYS LEARNING, I'D LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN ME IN THE PROCESS. THANKS FOR VISITING.
