Current works are created in both Oil & Acrylic mediums experimenting with different brush and pallet knife techniques. Works are guided by study of Master Impressionists with the purpose of understanding how they observed and interpreted colors and subjects. Primary studies are Seascapes, Landscapes and Portraits from travels in Europe, S.E. Asia and the United States which also allowed the opportunity of visiting some of the world’s great museums. Recent paintings are pushing the comfort limits of size with two current pieces; “Stormy Day” & “Watch Out” measuring 48”x 36” & 60”x 48” respectively.
