Women of a Certain Age
It is said that after forty, women are invisible, but not to me. These paintings are based on candid photos of these "invisible" ones, all the better to see them.

 

Still Life
Still lifes offer an opportunity to group objects in relationships that wouldn't normally occur. I view a still life as a kind of abstraction, a surprising departure from the normal way of looking at realistic objects.

Figurative
I find that figures painted from the model evoke a different sort of "liveliness" than those based on photographs. Both methods have advantages, and sometimes I use both while working on a single painting.

Abstraction
Abstract painting gives me the freedom to concentrate on the relationships among shapes and colors without regard to what they represent.

Landscape            Landscape painting presents so many possibilities that any painting seems inadequate to convey something truthful about a particular place.
