I'm developing a new series of paintings I'm calling Botanique. The paintings are inspired by the amazing and ever changing botanical world all around us. Abstract Impressionist in style, the paintings meld the form and vitality of Abstract Expressionism with the broken color brushwork of the Impressionists.
I hope to convey some of the dazzling color, vibrancy and nuance found in the magical world of plants, flowers and trees. I've brightened the palette quite a bit in this series, and am letting the colors run free.
All titles are randomly selected from botanical nomenclature. Pictured here, Fasicle, 48" x 48" acrylic on canvas.
Coniferous, (36" x 36", mixed media on canvas), has been juried into the Western Massachusetts Biennial on view through the end of the month at the Hosmer Gallery in Northampton. Opening reception this Friday (10/13) 5-8pm. Hope to see some of you there.
Happy to have a number of new paintings up in this show at Diana Felber Gallery through November 12th. Opening reception this Friday Oct 6th, 5-7 pm. Stop by if you're in the area.
