I have been torturing myself since my last show at the Studio Gallery about what I can start to really work on. I only paint Acrylics as abstracts and I only feel engaged if the work begins with a theme or has a feeling of a series of work. A painting here or there is not the way I can get involved with Acrylics on canvas, I just want to really become totally immersed in the subject and expand my horizons and let the work take me deeper into an understanding of the theme. I did this with my major body of work “The creation Series” and my work on the “Khalahari Desert” and I guess also the “layers” paintings. The last two bodies of work can be seen in my portfolio under “Studio Show”. THe Creation Series will be installed in the portfolio soon. When I figure out how to load the images but I will soon.
My new Series is going to be “America the Beautiful” and it will explore the richness of the American natural landscape. I am very excited about it and plan to really explore color, shape and form. I will post pieces from time to time but this the first painting in the series it is a 30 x 40 Acrylic on canvas, and I am try to evoke the feeling of plowed fields and farm land.
