Car Show

After retiring from my gallery, I was in a dry space, and I couldn't get inspired to paint. I ran across photographs I took in 2011 at a car show in downtown Longview, and there it was! At the time I took the photos they did not interest me, but creativity changes with time. I love reflections and painting metal, so this was perfect. The cars are simply vehicles to portray what is happening on their surface. While I have usually worked with the human figure, the car series were a welcome change. I love painting these and have discovered I am fascinated with the motor parts. My next series will be focused on the motors.

Wayward Flowers 

I In this series of work titled “Wayward Flowers”, I have distorted the flowers to create rhythm and movement throughout the piece. The viewer is encouraged to travel through the piece, rest for a while at the focal point and travel on. 

Mirrored Reflections

Glass, mirrors, metal,I love just about any surface that reflects.  Clear, colored, and cut glass is all about shapes, sparkle, reflections, and transparency. It’s exciting to layer one transparent color on top of another creating a third color and an interesting new shape. I love the distorted reflections due to the curve of the glass or metal.
