Undersea, 2014, acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 24″

I’ve been ambivalent about this painting but thought I’d post. It’s a beginning of something. I was going for an undersea feeling and experimenting with texture.

I miss my studio. I now have to move out of my home soon as well, so I’m hoping that wherever I land I can work on being more prolific.

Lotus Sent, Blues Installed

I’m just sending off a small lotus painting that I made for my cousin-in-law Laura. It’s 6″ x 6″ on a cradled Ampersand panel.

And here’s a photograph of an installation of panels custom-made for an unusual alcove in a very modern living room:

And here’s a little tribute to the Boulder wind. There are many ways to explore color…


The Painting Trail

My small but serviceable studio is about 4.5 miles from where I live, and there’s a lovely trail that goes most of the way; on nice days, if I don’t have a lot to carry, I walk. There’s a large flock of Canadian geese that gathers on a pond along the trail. I’m very fond of them.

In the studio I worked on a painting that’s been sitting dormant for a while. I guess I can’t deny that it’s a decorative painting, but I don’t really mind that at all. I love the iconic graphic lotus patterns that have been around for centuries in Indian textiles and they’re very fun to paint. It still needs a day or two of work but here’s the current state of it:


I was at a good stopping point but had too much paint on the palette to throw away, so I pulled out a sheet of watercolor paper and made this, which I like very much: IMG_1018

And here’s one more “imaginary landscape” that echoes that wintery pond where my geese like to do their networking.
