New Work

Finished This One Sunday

Well, it is essentially the same as when I first painted it, maybe a month ago, but I repainted the whole thing on Sunday, and made a few changes.

The colors on my monitor are not exact: the dark blues are purpler in person, and the fushias are redder and…

It’s Good to be Back in My Right Brain

Too much left brain lately, and I think I’ve done my last new website project for anyone else (pretty please, let it be so!).

My neighborhood website project is mostly done (well, are they ever really done?), so finally I can get back in the studio, finish #’s 1, 4,…

One of My Favorites in the New Series

…so far. Oh, wait, they’re all my favorites. 😉

Another Older Abstract: “Soaring”

One of My Favorite Encaustic Paintings

I am presently seeking out new territory in my paintings, and it’s too soon to show what I’m trying to learn now.  So, for your viewing pleasure today, here is one of my favorite paintings from my encaustic period (which lasted maybe 3-4 years, and may not yet be…

Early Abstract Landscapes

While I’m working on some new studies that I’m not yet ready to show you, I thought I’d share one of my first abstract landscapes, from 2006, the year I decided to move away from representation.  Not that I have been completely able to stay away from…
