These paintings, more than most, tell stories, or suggest stories, that the engaged viewer can r imagine from his or her own experiences. https://youtu.be/zrA-lk_5pUU
These paintings grew out of my love of painting the figure intuitively. Whole paintings developed from gestures that began cooperating with one another showing me glimpses of figures in places recognized as significant to me. The loosely painted settings and figures achieve transparency and a sense of otherworldliness through the use of scumbling, galzing and a palette ranging from deep inky black to the most delicate pastels. I invite viewers to enter these gardens and find resonant experiences here.
