Contemporary Expressionistic Landscapes
Inspired by a residency in France, my current work explores the juxtaposition of ancient structures and vibrant, vital life. I am using alkyd paint with willow charcoal and pastel to create paintings which appear like felted wool fiber. They are painted on canvas and varnished with a matte finish.
These works are a fusion of my graphics training in fine art printmaking and two decades as an intuitive colorist in pastel. The fusion of these two aspects of my work is a joyful homecoming that I hope you will see in my paintings.
