• Forest Abstact IV

  • Painted June 2021 Walking through a forest, the trees reflect light, memories and ideas. Thinking about the space and the associations created, I began painting my layered paintings.
  • Evergreen Abstract I

  • The forms take their shapes from the evergreen trees around my neighborhood. The paint is applied both with a brush and knife. Some areas the colors blend together and in others the colors are cut and scraped across the canvas.
  • Sunflower Abstract I

  • Painted during a live demo in Laguna Beach, CA on August 7, 2020, the painting depicts the forms of sunflowers glowing yet silhouetted against a blue sky. The leaves are marked by the common gold finch, who creates windows in the leaves.
  • Hillside Abstract I

  • Inspired by process of Batik I learned in Indonesia, the painting explores the apparent forms of grasses close by growing above the houses across the canyon ridgeline.
  • Winter Plane Tree Diptych

  • The painting uses masking techniques similar to batik, to reveal past layers of paint. The process is both additive and subtractive. The trees are separated by a reflective silver outline that highlights the shapes. The painting has been selected to appear in the upcoming edition of Irvine Valley College's literary journal, "The Ear."
  • Wildflower Abstract I

  • Walking through the hills above Yucaipa, the wildflowers grew tangled sweeping into the sky. The forms inspired associated colors while the layers immerse the subject into a sea of blues and greens.
