Oil Paintings
2016

My work is very personal and reflects my inner artist journey more than that presented by most artists. There is also a surreal aspect that I bring into my work that is never planned, but just begins to appear and then I develop it within the overall painting. There is not a true beginning, and there is not a true ending; there is just process! I start sometimes with a line, a series of lines, a drawing and then add color and then the lines begin to interact with the color and they take certain shapes and forms and this process just seems to continue from start until finish. Or, possibly not finish but just "feel" right. The work, like most non objective art, really has no place in time, yet it may feel like it does.
