Current Work

In my current series of work, I'm using a variety of watermedia in layers to achieve a highly textural and dynamic presentation. After 40 years of painting realistic interpretations of landscapes, florals and architectural themes, I find this new concentration on the relationships between the basic elements of art (shape, value, line, color and texture) to be a more exciting personal approach to art. Methods, materials and themes change, but a consistently good composition and design hold the viewer's eye.
