Hosta In Vase

12 x 12 Oil on board
Another in my deconstructed series. Still experimenting and finding my stride in this new series, but I have endless ideas and not enough time to paint. This is a good exercise in slowing me down, a lot more planning and thinking about painting.

Deconstructed Grass

18 x 18 Oil on canvas
Another of my new abstract "Decontructed" series. I am not sure this is finished, I wasn't totally happy with paint application and need to redo a few spots. I am still trying different canvas options, also. I think this type of work will be better with gessobord, but am interested in exploring.

Abstract Poppies

11 x 14 Oil on linen panel   SOLD
This is a new direction I am exploring. Here is my first example, I am developing a theme of abstract paintings of subjects I am labeling, "deconstructed". To break down a subject, or dissect an image. I am excited with the possibilities, as I have been underwhelmed with my recent work. I was a graphic artist in college, so this is more in keeping with how I think and see art, in a more graphic way with strong, bolder shapes. My paintings are taking more consideration and longer painting periods. I am hoping for the best!!! More to come........
