The Stillness

“The Stillness” Oil on Canvas, 16″ x 20″

 

The landscape is the subject in all my work, whether it is representational or abstract.

 

Tree Fantasy

After many years of painting outdoors as a beginning, self-taught painter, I now have lots of “notes” in my head. I find that I can work in my studio; sometimes from sketches or photos and sometimes from imagination.

 

Peaks

“Peaks” Oil on Canvas, 14″ x 28″

 

I am more interested in the quality of the paint on the canvas than in a detailed representation.

 

The Scent of Roses

“The Scent of Roses” Oil on Canvas, 34″ x 40″

 

I paint with a palette knife and actually love the loss of control that this technique provides. This way my artwork doesn’t get too fussy.

 

Soft Night

“Soft Night” Oil on Canvas, 20″ x 24″

 

I generally work on linen, which is strong enough to take the scraping and swirling of the knife. If I’m building up a lot of impasto, I switch to very thin glazes, just touching down over the high points and adding sparkle.

 

Light Before Darkness

“Light Before Darkness” Oil on Canvas, 20″ x 24″

 

Painting in the studio frees me up to be inventive with color. If I’m painting outdoors and see a brownish-yellow field, it’ll generally be that color on the canvas.

 

Red Lettuce Green Lettuce

“Red Lettuce Green Lettuce” 12″ x 16″

 

I had some very good instruction years ago on color-mixing, and I can duplicate colors well on my palette, but it’s much more fun to invent a color. Brownish field? Make it yellow-orange and put a purple-blue sky next to it to make it sing!

 

Hudson River Sundown

“Hudson River Sundown” Oil on Canvas, 34″ x 30″

 

After painting New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley landscape for many years, I was drawn to working with some abstracted versions of what I was feeling outdoors – the sounds, smells and breezes.

 

Life Force

“Life Force” Oil on Canvas, 44″ x 34″

 

These are gestural paintings with lots of movement, slathering and layering.  I particularly like the surprise mixtures of colors that sometimes just happen in the moment.

I often show the landscapes and “air-scapes” (or abstracts) side by side. They make interesting conversations with each other…about the colors, shapes and view of nature.
