Delft Mountain, Acrylic, 12"x12", $150

This is an acrylic pour. Marbling is the most common effect you get when pouring but you can get some control as I did in Canyon Sunset posted on 8/28/17.

Rebirth, 21"x16", Watercolor

This is my first watercolor abstract. It is very freeing to work large. My approach was to pour some paint and use a large brush in other areas. Salt gave texture. Mark making was done with palette knife and dripping. After the initial colors were dry, it was a matter of defining edges to give depth. What do you think of it?

Which Way is UP?

Intrigued with repetition of patterns, I photograph a lot of shadows. It paid off this month as this photo won First Place in the Assigned category of the Shadow and Light competition at the Enchanted Lens Camera Club.

Lacey Bloom, Acrylic, 10"x10", $105

Part of the fun in painting is trying new tools and techniques. You never know what will resonate and take you in a new direction. This painting was done by applying the paint and then blowing through a straw to move the paint. I like the lacey effect.

This painting is in the Small Works Holiday show at the New Mexico Art League from December 5 – January 6, 2018.

"Heuchera", Palace Purple, Watercolor, 16"x20"

I painted this from a coral bells plant in my garden. The shapes appealed to me and I pushed the colors into a stronger design. The painting has shown in the New Mexico Masterworks Exhibition but is currently one of four of my paintings on exhibition at the Cathedral of St. John’s Episcopal Church here in Albuquerque. The exhibition runs through March 6, 2018.

The Footprint, Watercolor, 17"x21", $280

This realistic watercolor is from a photo taken on Aruba. The interesting thing is that I did not see the footprint when I was there or when I looked at the photo. I only saw it when I started painting it. It is quite large and probably from a prehistoric Pterodactyl.
