Images: []

I am constantly amazed with the images and mysteries of creation oceans and skies in changing weather, Hubble-type images of the universe, and my own physicality during the painting process. It is the space in these images that I seek to capture and the 3-dimensional energy that defines that space. This requires special appreciation for the edges of the picture so that, rather than the eye moving off the surface, it bounces back through the surface.

Pouring, pushing, and layering paint unfolds those mysteries of creation and further informs me of my own space and role within it.

Though I begin with intention, the process itself yields marvelous surprises that carry me in directions I have not anticipated. It is like a dance with a creative partner gently leading me into moves I have not yet experienced.
