Original abstract pastel drawing on paper mounted on canvas. Side edges of canvas painted black, ready to hang. 

Short black lines on white with faint green, yellow, blue reminiscent of fresh vegetation regrowing after fire.	

Part of the Summer and Fall series. An abstract drawing from burned tree rubbings at Archbold Biological Station on Lake Wales Ridge in the Florida Scrub. Fire is a critical part of the ecosystem in the scrub, which is a mosaic of habitats. Biologists who work in the scrub often emerge with unintentional charcoal "drawings" on their clothes. I was inspired by a previous visit. I returned to intentionally gather "drawings" made by trees on papers to use them in abstract compositions. The charcoal impressions and folded textures on paper became the basis of rubbings,  which were then traced with pastel pencil on paper and then mounted on canvas. The field work was carried out deep within burnt vegetation to gather images with a team of collaborators, scientists and artists.

Hi. I am a North Carolina-based artist. At some point, the world broke into particles, for me. I realized that matter was interchangeable. Everything is significant, in that, it is part of everything else. I start with matter and see how it comes together. There might be realistic elements or not. Mostly, my Art is about the glory of life. If we can find it. Recently, I am creating whimsical paintings with brightly colored tempera and latex (see these series: Memory Possibilities, Loblolly Memory Pad). Who knows what will be next? I was juried into the Orange County Artists Guild, OCAG, (Carborro, NC) in February, 2020. I moved to North Carolina in March 2018, after having lived in Miami for 33 years. Originally from the Chicago area, I was a founding member of the experimental art rock band Merz Pix. Private collectors across the US and the globe (France, the UK, the Netherlands, Tasmania, Japan) have purchased my works.
