Project Description

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt,

and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

Leonardo da Vinci

Color and texture play a major part in my work. I will be quick to say that these are the main entry points of my design and composition. I like to play with colors, create palette knife effects, and bold brush strokes.

Being in the presence of an early sunrise surrounded by nature leads me to quiet meditation.

Winds of change

Forest Frosting

Acrylic on Canvas, Size: 32 inches by 32 inches, framed

Autumn has just bade farewell but the evergreens have stayed. Some fall colors adorned the forest as the first snow flurries

along my hikes by the Pisgah Forest touched my face. It was a nice feeling to experience the winds of change.

Scientist will explain why leaves lose its green pigment in autumn. I just love to paint all the colors of fall.

Warm tones of oranges, yellows and gold. Rust and even delicious splashes of pinks. Oh what a glorious transformation

happens in the landscape when the leaves start changing!

river and water reflections

Summer Breeze

Acrylic on Canvas, 30″ x 30″

The water reflecting back what it ‘sees’ while the sun rays dance along with it. The ripples of water move the falling leaves all the way down the river. The summer breeze on my face and the swaying meadow grass bring back beautiful memories. I was happy to paint the moment.
