    Description

    Oil on Dibond

    40"x28"

    This painting was published in Aug 2017 for the family edition for Poets and Artists. This is my sister Joann and the title was chosen because of her inner peace. It was important to bring the background yoga design into her dress. It was imaginative with a shot of her in her yard under a tent. I had to creatively invent the lighting and background to melt within her as she is a yogi and very spiritual. The invented colors describe her persona...within.

    Detail in Big Strokes

    This painting shows amazing detail (color, texture) within such beautiful loose brushstrokes. I love it!

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.
