Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Pastel on Canvas.

Water is a reoccurring theme in my work. A few times a week, I meditate at a park, sitting next to a beautiful lake. This painting was inspired by the beauty of the lake, and the surrounding plants.

The "Chrysalis" Series is an abstraction of nature. Beginning with an automatic drawing in graphite, translucent layers are applied, followed by more mark making & more layers. Various mediums are utilized to build the surface.The resulting smaller paintings are windows looking outward, while the larger paintings are abstract nature-scapes you can walk right into.

In our minds we know what a hike looks like, or a garden, a meadow, or a waterfall. But what do they feel like? That’s what I try to convey in my painting.

This is an original, one-of-a-kind painting on 1.5" thick gallery wrapped canvas done in acrylic, inks, graphite, oil pastel, and oil glazes. The painting is varnished with a satin varnish to protect from dirt and light. The edges of the canvas are light grey, and the painting is wired and ready to hang.
