Subject:
abstract landscape
Aqua and grays form the colors of this abstract organic painting that focuses on the transient forms found on the foreshore among the rock pools and shallow waters.

Exploring the the contours and muted colors this abstract nature painting aims to  reveal the beauty of a single form  and the sensuousness of a paint bloom. Enveloped by translucent colors and floating forms much of work in this series remains watery to the eye, almost out of focus, suggesting a distant perspective.

Made with love

Professional quality acrylic paints on either a 10 or 12oz canvas.  I like to stretch the canvases myself, select the materials, the wood and canvas and assemble the frames in my studio. Frames are either hardwood or pine,  professional stretchers that are stretched with either 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester blend. I like the smooth fine weave of the polycotton. 

Handling the materials at this early stage provides my initial connection with the work, a familiarity with the wood and the surface of the weave and marks the beginning of a journey.
