Color Field Paintings
These paintings are freeze frame glimpses of nature's creatures in abstracted color compositions. I experience nature by watching the flight of birds moving through the sky, listen to leaves moved by the wind and the songs of birds. With time spent in the outdoors watching the clouds and listening to the wind, it is nature that has fueled a never ending passion of color and movement. This series of paintings is a contemporary take on a typically traditional subject matter. The detailed rendering is cast into the minimal abstract composition of the highly developed complex surfaces. They are abstracted, voyeuristic portals to nature's amazing visual gifts. These paintings bring nature indoors and give the viewer the opportunity to get lost in the calming simplicity and the seductiveness of nature.
