New England’s beautiful scenery is the inspiration for many of my pastel landscape paintings. The changing seasons. Light & shadow. Reflections. Colors. Mood. I paint loosely & expressively and capture the spirit & energy of a location at a moment in time. And that’s special because that moment will never happen again.
Equally important is my intuitive/abstract acrylic work, which allows me to express myself in a different style. When I paint intuitively, I have no preconception of what the final painting will look like, though a photo or experience may spark an idea or point me in a direction. The process involves feeling & reacting - adding & subtracting paint, adjusting colors & values and building layers using a variety of tools & techniques.
