October Reflections



Oil
24"x36"

The thinking behind this painting was to work with a limited palette and mute all of the colors. Lately, these more abstract works begin with a drawing that remains throughout the painting. I like the way line can break the shapes and patterns and the initial color helps pull the overall painting shapes and colors together. Some of the recent works are much more tactile and have been influenced by my other life as an etcher/printmaker.
