In the Studio – Sketching on Paper

In the Studio – Sketching on Paper

I try to get into the studio every day, at least for a few minutes. Some days that means flipping on the light before dawn while I drink my coffee, grabbing a quick look at whatever I’ve got in progress before heading off to whatever damned thing is going to keep me away from my […]

Goodbye Now Sweet Summer

Goodbye Now Sweet Summer

It’s been a spectacularly beautiful summer here. I’ve hung both I Am The Sailor and Wild White Veils in my living room – it makes me feel like I’m swimming in the cool sparkling waters of the lake near my home. Just like the rippling waters of a lake or the ocean, these paintings are complex, dark, moody […]

A Walk In The Woods, Painting and Inspiration

A Walk In The Woods, Painting and Inspiration

Snow has fallen early in my little corner of the world, but I wanted to share some of the sights and insights that have been inspiring me lately. I’ve been finishing up the work I was doing over the summer, which more often than not just means letting the paintings sit for awhile, until they […]

New Paintings: Mare Incognitum

New Paintings: Mare Incognitum

“Water is formless. Yet the lack of form implies neither chaos nor fragmentation. Water enjoys the purest unity, a seamlessness that can never be torn. The hydrogen within it accounts for its magical ability to stay congealed.” – John O’Donoghue   I’ve recently completed several paintings that I’ve been working on since spring. The two […]

Conversations With Muggles

Conversations With Muggles

So. Following my exhortation last week asking people to consider buying original art instead of cheap screen prints, I got into a discussion in which someone asked me (in what I felt was a rather disingenuous way) if abstract art is still in style. They had read an article in the Home section of their […]

Sneak Peek… New Work!

Sneak Peek… New Work!

It’s been such a hot summer that I’ve been spending more time at the lake than in the studio.You can tell that’s been a big inspiration for me lately! I have a bunch of these cool-feeling watery cuties almost ready to go. They’ll be available by the end of the month!

New Work – Cool Ocean Vibes

New Work – Cool Ocean Vibes

Aside from some minor touch ups to do in that dark sea-blue area at the bottom, this one is done! It’s been a brutally hot summer in a lot of places, so I hope you’ll enjoy some these cool ocean vibes. I sometimes have a hard time finishing work… my process is very spontaneous and exploratory, […]

New Year, New Work

My website has just been updated with several pieces from my new series, MARE INCOGNITUM. I’ve been exploring my experience of painting in the context of a journey, an adventure and as a way to delve into the unknown. Last spring, I set out to build on the visual language from my previous body of work, […]
