Description: A painterly interpretation of reality
My paintings are a combination of representational and abstract styles. The representational aspects provide a framework for the abstraction while the abstraction gives beauty to the representational. I believe this complementary relationship enhances the viewer’s enjoyment of the piece. The details in a painting aren’t as important as is the composition and value relationships, i.e., light and dark. When composition and values are strong, the details take care of themselves. The beauty of the forms ‘speak’ through composition and values.
