Abstracts

These acrylic paintings are part of a seven-painting abstract series I created in 2010. Most people prefer to use their own imagination when viewing abstracts, but I can say that the premise was to try to capture gestures or events over time -- of course, these are not representational -- merely my attempt to dimensionally envision ripples in a pond and the rock that started the event all at the same time. Like a sort of Rorschach image, everyone's interpretation is correct.

The pieces are rendered entirely in acrylics on heavy, archival, 300# Arches watercolor paper. With over 30 washes over a period of days provide the unique luminescence and transparency of these pieces, which is difficult to achieve with acrylics. The "drips" are intentionally in relief, giving the art dimensionality in more ways than one.

Remember that each monitor displays color differently, and your viewing angle can also affect the color.

Celebrate Friends

The following acrylic paintings are part of a six painting, small format abstract series I began in 2011. With this series, I am having fun mixing the retro colors and techniques of the 50's and 60's. I have my own interpretations of these images, but please feel free to use your own imagination.
