I have focused on the reflections in this group of paintings. The cars are secondary. These are derived from photographs I took at a car show on Commerce Avenue in Longview about 2011. I was looking for a strong series of work recently when I ran across these older photos. I'm fascinated with contrasts of any kind, and I love reflections, so this was perfect. Although I knew these would be much easier to do in watercolor, I didn't want to display them under glass, so I chose to do them as acrylic on canvas. I'll be adding to this series each week or so as I finish the pieces.
IWayward Flowers is a series of acrylic paintings that are derived from flowers, then the flowers are distorted to focus on composition and the way one travels throughout the paintings.
"Passing Through" is a series of city overpasses and country roads. These wanted to be more abstract/impressionistic paintings that are focused on rhythm and movement. More coming later after I finish the Car Show series.
