One thing I have noticed about being an artist is you have to prove you can
“draw” before anyone takes you seriously. Even if the style is abstract expressionism, many art buyers want to know that the artist has skills, and that she could paint realistically if the mood caught her.
A look at Pablo Picasso’s early work proves the point. He didn’t just jump to cubism, it was a process. Certainly he gained respect and notoriety along the way. He was awesome like that.
I consider Autumn Swamp, my original painting featured above to be figurative. It represents forms that are recognizably derived from life, stimulates a mood in the beholder, but is not photo-realistic. This painting below, entitled Autumn Calling, is inspired by the same scene in my creative psyche. Of course, some folks may completely reject the figuratism and say it’s completely abstract expression.
For as long as I’ve lived, the water has spoken to me. Brown water, blue water, green water, clear water, river water, lake water, sea water, and even bayou water. Here’s a little series I worked up with my digital art skills. I’m going to be working this concept into an acrylic on canvas series as well. LOVE negative space and painterly texture!
These watery blue scenes take you to your favorite fishing hole, camp or marina…even if it’s just in your dreams. A mix of photo realism, with a modern painterly background, irresistible for home or office

About the work
I try to convey the sensual spirit of nature. A sophisticated color palette, particularly one that’s not expected, gets me excited. Using color vibrancy and value to represent light in my painting creates a sense of depth and mystery. It pleases me when the imagination can take hold and and reveal beauty to the eyes of the beholder.
