Marks For Now (Abstract)

This is a piece which continues my Random Scribbling Series or Asemic writing. I’m not the best with words so feel comfortable with this kind of mark making. Being a large piece one has to approach it as if it is small to view the details. Wild mark making releases energy from an unknown source, one has to not think and let go. marksfornow_oil_wax_Marks For Now                                      60×72 oil/was on canvas

Life Force Of Creativity (Abstract)

Something new and fun. Gouache paintings torn up and then glued back together.

Also want to share something I found on Brain Pickings which was just what every artist needs to read. Check the link below and enjoy.

Site Santa Fe (Unseen 9)

This was first time to be able to preview the show. One of my close friends had a lovely piece in the exhibit which will help raise money for Site. I can’t tell you the name of the artist as it is to be revealed when a collector purchases the piece. I love the ideal of not knowing who the artist is, so one just focuses on the work and not the name. Here is the piece and if I was to tell you their name Site would have to kill me. SO FORGET ITsite

The Harbor

This piece is another shape piece done with oil and cold wax. The Harbor in on panel which is 2 inches in depth. The color has been grayed down to create a subtle feel. When I lived in Carpinteria my close friend Wendy Varnels would take me out sailing from the Santa Barbara Harbor. We would enjoyed each others company and let the captain do all the work. But there were time we would pitch in and help, but mostly just stayed out of his way. Enjoy

Shapes In Abstract Painting

These are different pieces, shapes in more neutral tones. The image evolves as I construct and deconstruct.  These pieces are oil,wax,and ash on panel. The ash comes from my wood burning stove which I use all winter for heat. Enjoy the work.
