Painting: Acrylic on Wood.
The things that are left outside the home at night seem to take on their own personality. In the early darkness of fall, the pink bike waits in a backyard landscape. A flagstone patio and stepping stones lead the viewer past shrubs and trees into the night.
It is painted in a loose, abstract style. The painting is on a panel and it is ready to hang.
In my work I seek to create a strong sense of place and person, based on my perceptual memories, how I experience nature and my immediate surroundings.
I live in Ojai, California a very beautiful small valley surrounded by tall mountains about 10 miles from the Pacific ocean.These mountains, trees, chaparral, cactus and sky vary from lush to arid and are a continuous source of inspiration. I also do some dance and am fascinated by the figure, its shapes and how it relates to nature and architecture.
I hold a MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Painting and Sculpture from UC Santa Cruz.
