My interpretation of subjects, images, and meanings change; that’s what’s great about abstract. Best you say what they mean.
Oil on canvas, 2007, 36 x 36”
Bold strokes. Buttery texture. Not so subtle blending. Holding the world in a vast and uncertain universe. It’s about caring, connection, and observation.
Oil on canvas, 2013, 30 x 30”
Strong, sharp playful marks. Working with, and scratching out, the delicate nature of generational family communications. You know, family life…right!?
We’re Buddies, Right!?
Oil on Canvas, 2013 30 x 30”
Bold bright colors, soft but contrasting edges. Close and dynamic personal interaction. Maybe wrestling the way kids …or lovers do.
Oil on Canvas, 2012 30 x 30”
Soft, subtle comfort. Evening in the woods glow. Maybe a childhood family camping trip; the time when you’re all in the tent snuggled-up telling ghost stories and bonding.
Mixed media on raw canvas, 2008, 48 x 48”
A lot of action. Time of great change and chaos. Big bold stuff. Is that the Flux Capacitor from the movie Back to the Future in action?! Maybe it is. Is there a seagull flying from a cavern to the light? Why, yes it is.
Oil on canvas, 2007, 30 x 40”
Ethereal forms and texture. Dreamlike bordering on surreal. An earlier piece that was moving in a direction I wanted to go with my work. Was an important Next Piece in my painting journey.
Oil on canvas, 2017, 30 x 30”
Painted for a best friend whom asked me to officiate his wedding. About self and other. Action and calm. Togetherness and aloneness.
Two Hearts Resurection
Oil on canvas, 2009,
Sometimes I am be pretty naive. Joni Mitchell calls her songs, “portraits of disappointment.” Pretty enticing sales-copy here, huh?! Actually I got great value out of this piece…and still believe in love.
Oil on Panel, 2006
Not quite surreal. Boat on on the water carrying precious cargo. Moonscape.
