The Park” brings the viewer into the somber cold day in fall, when the dark shadows of the trees fall on the brightly fallen leaves. Everyone is briskly going about their life, unattached to anyone else walking in the park. I seek refuge in the comfort of shapes and colors to reveal the emotions of the human condition and the environment. My linear style begins with a very simple strong line, usually black, to emphasize the shapes and composition. Light, although important, plays a secondary role. My trademark is the uninhibited strong, bold, yet soft use of color, all incorporated into a unique design to produce a canvas of emotional expression.In my paintings, portrayal of facial features and the body are deliberately not exacting. Instead, the face is defined just enough to capture the subject’s essence and the body parts stylized so the viewer can experience the real conversation, their mood, their core, their essence, their emotives. The use of strong shapes, contrasted with unconventional combinations of colors, produce works that are simplistically understated, yet powerful, and tell a harmonious story.
