Freeze and Thaw Acrylic on Canvas, 30″ X 24″

I am one of those who awaits January.  The fresh calendar, frozen landscape and clear skies inspire me. In the winter woods, silent scampers cross yesterday’s foot trail.  Breathy frosts and papery footfalls pause between crow call and crystalline sky, and, spruce shadows taper their ink lines around the earths’ bulky mounds.  I want to walk. “Freeze and Thaw” (purchased … Read More

Several of those shapes have become fully developed paintings on their own, but diagrams … Read More

I love to explore ideas in my acrylic paintings: objects that could be very old, sea-or-land scape that triggers a memory, or animals that I connect with.
