Oil on Canvas, 20” x 25 ½”, 2016

This piece is reminiscent of the ocean in palette, tone and texture. Looking at it you can feel the sand under your toes and smell the salty air. I made color and compositional choices based on intuition and feel. It is an abstract expressionist painting focused on color, composition, texture and mark-making. I enjoy creating paintings like this, letting it develop intuitively as I go and allowing the paint and the creative process speak for itself. I apply thick gestural brush strokes and scrape with a palette knife to create a rich blend of textures and broken color. The sides of the canvas are painted black and I placed hanging hardware on the back for a sleek, contemporary look.
