Notes: Abstract expressionist painting flirting with landscape. Rugged coastal forms meet the blues and aqua greens of the sea, a salt water cove, alive with tidal rhythms. Painted from a deep love of the ocean, and seaside solitude. Palette knife and active brushwork create rythmic layers of mixed color.

Notes: Abstract expressionism revisited, this uplifting painting is alive with vigorous, fluid brushstrokes in a field of the palest cream and frothy ice whites. A gestural, energetic surface, filled with motion and energy. Deep forest greens and woodsy tones brush up against clear sky blues and the music of ripples, creek water and wet leaves.
