I paint and draw for the pleasure of putting color on canvas, to create pictures that are a fusion of realistic images and abstract designs. In some paintings realism is dominant, abstract design takes over. As a result, my work shows a wide range of styles. I paint a wide variety of subjects, most often landscapes but also still life, abstracts and animals, using watercolors, acrylics, pastels and charcoal. I love watercolors for their bright, fresh appearance, acrylics for their immediacy and simplicity, pastels for their intense colors and ease of application, and charcoal for the intense darks, wide value range, and simplicity.
