Paintings

organic lyrical abstractions inspired by nature

My canvases make reference to places in nature; a forest, 
a garden, a tree, evoking a keen awareness of cyclical growth and decay, spontaneity and restraint, I strive to make visible the invisible:
With gestural brushwork, drawing into fields of vibrant color, I want to pull the viewer into rich, lush surfaces, dynamic lyrical organic forms. My own movement and marks on the canvas suggest that of a branch moving in the wind, a dance of life, reflections of light on the river flowing by my house:  a joyful celebration of life.

Passages of pure painting, impasto or glazes, offer themselves as touchstones for another reality - glimpses of 
"What is behind it All”

a note about framing: my personal suggestion is not to frame the stretched canvases. I use professional stretcher bars and keep the 1.5" sides clean and white in order not to interfere with the image.  I paint right to the edge of the canvas to suggest the image to go beyond the edge of the painting into the space larger than the painting. A frame could close in the image.
