When I first got the feeling for acrylics and had a series I liked it was a group of work based on Zion Canyon and I called the pieces Monoliths. They were simple strong dark shapes against a warm background which really amplified the power of the shape and created for me an impression of the strength of the stone monuments in the Southwest landscape. The paintings were primative and expressive and I left them with the attitude that anyone could paint as well as this and looked for a more complicated subject. Several of them were chosen for a one week show in Georgetown and I was shocked to hear the reactions to them. They spoke to many viewers as the best in the show. Goes to show I know very little.
