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”

organic lyrical imagery is my voice and inspiration. Nature and its beauty, through the cycles of the seasons is "my church" I receive joy and meaning through the symbolism, the message is to be present with that beauty. I hope this painting can relate some of that to the viewer. Nothing can save me but Beauty the painting is 50hx36" and sells for $5,800

a series of water images working with the reflection of light on water and the movement of water has been a constant subject for me. I am also very much interested in abstraction, the power of color and dynamic movement of the paint on the panel, it is very exciting for me to totally surrender to the process and what happens with the paint. the panel is 12x12" and needs no frame. $600.
