Blue Russet

Blue Russet

In tones of russet and sepia, there is also a bit of blue. The texture in this piece feels like a tangle of fields and trees. This piece is on a cradled panel, wired to hang, with edges of bare wood with a wax finish. I prepared the panel first with Venetian Plaster to create the extra texture.

Lavender Hush

Lavender Hush

My favorite color and fragrance is lavender; so heavenly. In this painting, I softly buffed each layer of spring colors using my fingertips to create a sweet hush to the paint. I think of it as a lullaby. This piece has natural wood edges that have a waxed finish.

Winter Sonata

Winter Sonata

In this piece, I strive for color, texture, and a sense of distance by building layers of oil and cold wax. Hidden underneath is a layer of strong dark forest green followed by SIX different reds followed by purples, oranges, and white. I used my hands, scrapers, squeegees and my grandmother's (!) stylus tool for mark making. My goal was to FEEL a winter sonata, thanks to Vivaldi.
