“Friction” is an exploration of colors in total contrast to each other. I used the metallic inks to add depth and texture…using the neutral silver to tie them together.

The energy that the color “red” brings can be simple and clean.

An Ocean View
Even watching the Weather Channel can be an inspiration. (LOL) I saw movements in the ocean I’d not really focused on before. This pattern stayed in my head until I found a texture (paper towels) to duplicate what I’d just seen.

Expression Series #2
This installment of the EXPRESSION SERIES offers layers upon layers. I ask that you look deep and find the message(s) that is identifiable in a personal way.
16 x 20/Acrylic/2018
On occasion I get into a very "colorful" kind of mindset. The background music adds to the overall "tone" of this piece. Jazz and contemporary christian music were the drivers here. I added a little tan to tone the blue down a little without diluting the other lighter blue. I added a little metallic ink to this one to give it a extra little depth. Textures are hidden, but obvious. The closeup gives you a glimpse of the highlights the metallic inks used adds to it.

White Tower/Black Tower
Somewhat inspired by the division that has separated us all for years, I believe we have a responsibility as human beings to acknowledge, honor, respect and listen to our obvious differences. (internal and external) Though different, the towers represent an individuality that is truly their own.

Fun piece! Part of the skyline series. The closeup views show the different textures and layers...building up to a peak in the white space.

Burlap and Metallic 1
My favorite texture to use is burlap when doing some of the contemporary pieces. Mixing the metallic inks and layers of burlap brings to life colors - often chosen by the client. The color schemes comes from things, places, colors, shapes, and patterns I see in everyday life.

Impressions in Black and White
New color combination full of textures, and layers with a black and white base. Highlighted with metallic for extra pop.

Black and Tan Splash
This piece has layers on top of layers. Ideal for a neutral wall and ready for hanging as an accent at home or a wall at your office. I recall seeing these colors in a clothing store display, and loved the use of the neutral colors. A change of brushes and heavy application kept the paint in full motion with underlying textures throughout.

Skyline View #5
Sometimes I just feel like a new skyline. Making acrylic look watercolors is fun. Metallic ink used to give it a little more depth and that extra “pop”.
