Going Up

 
Going Up   $125
16" x 12" - mixed media: acrylic and collage papers on canvas 
Another imagined landscape, created through layers of paint and beautiful washi textured collage papers.  I love the rich warm palette in this one and the varied surface texture suggested by the papers that seem to be woven in and out of the paint.

Tropical Vibe on the Both Shore

Tropical Vibe on the South Shore
24" x 36" - acrylic on canvas - $450
Like most painters,  I constantly use a variety of brushes -  small and large ones, square shaped and round ones, all in various sizes. In some recent paintings I have been experimenting with building up layers of colour and form with squarish brush strokes using a 'bright' brush. I like the overall chunky look of these strokes and the way they contribute to abstract quality of the composition. 
This composition is a riff on an earlier one, but using a very different, colourful, high key palette. Lots of intense colour, colour galore in fact!
