Summer Contemplation

Summer in Tucson is a time to stay indoors, and make the most of down-time from shows. I have apparently entered  a "white" phase of painting.  I start out using my signature colors, and then next thing I know, I am covering it with white paint.   A curious process to be sure! Lately I am thinking about Graffiti, now that could be really liberating.  Stay tuned to see if the Graffiti show up...or what new color phase I might be in!

My website had a bit of a hiccup, and was recently down for about two weeks.  My apologies if you tried to visit, and received an error.  Fingers crossed that the problem is sovled for the time being.

Abstraction; extended necks and wilting hands, Expression; floating dots and cerulean blue lips and Color; plush alizarin backdrops and emerald green stockings, spill onto each bleached canvas, leaving an indelible stain. Whether palette knife or brush, pure pigment or distilled, each painting brings an abstract thought to life.

Color is my passion, my movement, my expression. My love for color, abstraction of the human form, and need for expression are the forces that drive me to expose the innermost layer. Tucson 12 photographer Martha Cantrell captured this essence recently for a D-town Tucson segement.
