Flying High III
Flying High III

Flying from NYC to Calgary, Alberta, the view outside my window was beautiful: fuzzy clouds and the hint of a gold and pink sunset. One of the interesting things about my paintings is that water and sky are often interchangeable. When trying to recreate a memory of water (lake, ocean), the resulting painting can often look like sky, or outer space. And the reverse is often true: sky/clouds sometimes look like the ocean. 2018 Acrylic on raw canvas Size: 18"x 24" $460

Socotra IV

It's great working in a series: you can see different ways of treating a subject ... like a sunset. This is the fourth of four paintings based on a friend's photo of a sunset on the island of Socotra, just off the coast of Yemen. It's the most abstract of the four; the first one was very representational and looked a lot like the photo. Each one since has been more and more abstract. It's my way of experimenting with a subject I love. 2014 Acrylic on paper Size: 18"x 24 $460

I started painting this with the gold on the bottom. It was going to be called "Fields of Gold." However, once I realized it worked much better with the gold on top, I decided to just call it Gold. I wanted to escape my typical colors and go with the complementary colors of yellow and purple. So what started as an exercise ended up as a real painting. Sometimes you have to abandon your own judgements and let the painting tell you what works. 2018 Acrylic on raw canvas Size: 20"x16" $350
