Afternoon Forest Walk - I wanted to paint the feeling of walking in a forest in the afternoon sunshine. The organic shapes dance over the canvas. I hope that you will have a warm, happy feeling of peace when you see this work.
Can you feel it? Can you see it in my painting? It is warm and wonderful - and would be lovely in a home.
I love the freedom of abstracts to be a little suggestive of objects without needing to portray them. Although a fellow artist suggested that this is a landscape more than an abstract. I don't care if it doesn't fit easily into a category, I just love the intense colors and the feeling I get when I see it. I hope that you like it too.
Oh! I want to mention that I have an interview from my last show on this website! Go up to the Favorite Links. My interview starts at about 13:08 and goes for about 4 minutes. It discusses 4 paintings.
DoorEdges! Look in my Gallery for more of my paintings and see the full line of DoorEdges™ in my Shopping Cart. I have decided not to make more DoorEdges for a while, so if you want one, it is best to get it before they are gone!
Selected works can be viewed and purchased at my Yessy site. Sign up for my newsletter to find out about my upcoming shows.

Please join me in my art journey through my blog. I share my thoughts, techniques, and general life philosophy. Abstracts are great for capturing feeling without the entrapments of subjects. I have also been doing a pencil drawing each morning as a warm-up. Some are nice, others are experiments which sort of work - or not. But they are fun to share. I want to do it for 30 days to make it a habit. Come check it out!
