These compositions are from an old painting titled "Autumn Greenbelt". The new paintings are 10x10", acrylic and collage on cradled wood.

Below are the gel prints I used for the collage. They are so lovely together!

Cloud Study

Is it me, or does this painting make anyone else think of a Thurber cartoon?

Like this one ... "You and your premonitions!"

First Painting from Collage

The image on the left is one page from my collage sketchbook. I really liked it so I decided to try to do a painting from it. The pigment choices were from a color mixing chart I made using Adele Sypesteyn’s Triangular Color Chart.



"Joy", 14x20", acrylic and collage on watercolor paper.

"Inner Worth" in process

"Inner Worth"

These paintings are 20x16", acrylic and collage on cradled wood panels. They are at a delicate point, where they are very attractive, but need something more. Now is the time to slow down and look, to wait and ponder. What do they need now?

The Pinkness!

In his novel "Time Is the Simplest Thing", Clifford D. Simak had a character known only as "the pinkness", which lived in a cave somewhere on a forgotten planet. It traded its mind with the main character, and after that he had all sorts of knowledge that came from alien contacts that had traded their minds with the pinkness over the eons. Wild, eh?

Sincerely ...

These sweet little paintings are titled "Sincerely", because I can't imagine them having an ulterior motive. It was also a charming song by The Moonglows. from way back when. They are just joyful and full of life. They are 12x9", with a white border I am not showing here.

"Noir Cafe"

"Noir Cafe I"

"Noir Cafe II"

 This pair of paintings are 9x12" each,  acrylic on watercolor paper. I see a lot of old film noir, and the angularity and multiplicity of factors seems to resonate with that genre.



The colors in this diptych remind me of what used to be called a "brown study", when a person gets lost in thought. Acrylic on watercolor paper, 14 1/2 x 21 3/4".
