This is a new series of large acrylic and oil paintings based on an idea of creative energy taking form. They develop and evolve through adding and masking multiple layers of gestural marks and shapes. This process adds depth and dimensionality. As the paintings evolve, additions or subtractions become more thoughtful and intentional. However, at any point inspiration for a whole new direction may emerge and a major change may happen. It is exciting and humbling to be learning to listen to that inner guidance and direction.
I paint to connect with a deeper part of myself. It is challenging and satisfying to work with contrast, color, shape and line to create layered, intuitive paintings.
