Artwork Description:
Composition 7. What do you see? I kind of laugh, because I can imagine a variety of answers. Isn’t that fun? I can tell you that it is – an abstracted landscape. But, where? Of what? Well, where have you been? What does it remind you of? Or, I can tell you – I am simply fascinated with shapes, and an interplay of a somewhat dark teal complementary color and the champagne metallic sheen making their bold statements right in the midst of a sea of warm sienna. They do command some attention. I’m reminded of painting instruction long ago, where I was counseled to capture the eye from afar, but do not disappoint when the view approaches for closer review. Further explained – to capture the eye from a distance, with a composition of color (in hue, intensity and value), shape and/or form, and contrast, not to mention some of the principles of design with these before-mentioned elements. Then, equally honor the viewer by capturing the play of textures and detail when they approach the canvas, desiring to know more. How fun. Ok, another honest moment here – I am an artist, so I suspect the following will make sense to other artists: When I finish a work, I enjoy running my hand across it. It simply put’s a smile on my face. Perhaps silly. Some of this media has a unique aroma. Yes, I enjoy even the smell of the work, just as I have enjoyed painting with oils and an assortment of corresponding media. But I hope you are pleased – enjoying a composition from afar, while equally pleased and enjoying the visual craft as you have stepped closer. I think of nature much the same way – from afar there is a composition that captivates your eye (the forest). Then as you look down in this world you inhabit, or approach that composition, there is much finely constructed detail to capture and entertain your eyes. You now see the tree in all of it’s splendor, not just the forest. Step up close to these works, and enjoy it there, as well.

Artwork Description:
This a companion work to a custom metallic silver faux finish that I have performed. I refer to this type of work as an abstract art. It is representation of a real thing in my mind’s eye, but constructed in a somewhat abstracted fashion. I imagine the activity in the skyline, the expanse of waves and roar, and the shore before me, equally rich with visual appeal. But the composition and construction are representational. Perhaps not your typical seascape. But this is the feel and spirit of the work as I began unfolding the composition of textural passes, washes of color and metallic. These finishes and works include a low luster metallic plaster, in whatever combination of mixes I dare to place of my trowel. At first, you pause. You look at that beautiful rich media on the trowel, ponder for a very brief moment as you imagine the blends and the hit and miss interaction that is about to occur on the canvas surface. You proceed (although perhaps a little bit anxious to know if your hand, trowel, and surface are going to play nice together) – artfully executing across the canvas, and perhaps back again. The exciting part is simply enjoying the pleasant surprises that have occurred with the media and trowel, while having enough courage to know when to leave it alone, and when and how to build subsequent layers. I refer to this “partnering-up for the dance” in my Artist’s Statement – where, “truly, I enjoy the process that simply touches my heart and mind, in perhaps a bit of a giddy way, when that layer of color or shimmer, or play of strokes, or pass of texture and blends that strikes you as ‘complete,’ and your rest, satisfied as ‘a fun work to have created.’”

Artwork Description:
Surely it is true that all natives of a given locale would state that they have the most beautiful sunsets. I would agree with them, I’m sure, if I had the privilege of observing their sunsets as well. Sunsets, wherever they are observed, are often displaying a breath-taking view of splendor and artistry. They are spectacular. We stop to take them in. Living in the country, in my setting, these glowing skies are settle onto a fairly unobstructed natural horizon of tree lines and fields. This particular scene was rich and glowing toward the horizon, with dark and imposing clouds overhead. What may seem a bit unsettling overhead was teamed with a calm, and perhaps re-assuring rest, at the base of it all. Perhaps that is an interesting consideration – how the glowing, restful, and warm glow of a horizon effects our spirit. Does anyone ever really just observe a sunset with indifference? Or, do all of us, in our own way, and in our own locations, take note of the statement right in front of us. It strikes me with awe. Therefore, I aimed to capture it as best I could, and draw attention to the story it might tell. It’s worth re-telling.

Artwork Description:
We have a particular Japanese Maple ornamental tree just outside our front door. Each spring we are graced to have a robin that builds her nest among the branches. We are grateful to have them “lodge” here for their “month’s stay.” Although there is a fair amount of traffic, she seems comfortable enough to lay her young here, only to be launched out of the nest and into the front yard at the end of the month. It is enough to have the pleasure of watching her build, lay her eggs within this crafted basin, provide for their hatching, feeding frenzies, and coaching them along in their launch. But as an artist, I can’t help but also pay attention to the visual beauty of it all. I see this blend of reds, whites and greens dancing about in the peripheral background. The texture of brown and the tan grasses or twigs reflect the same colors, with a few beautiful aqua eggs juxtaposed against that backdrop. This play of color and the encircling activity of the nest and leaves, I simply find to be a delightful visual. The focus, of course, are the new young, about to be introduced into the world. The life is beautiful. The setting is beautiful. I am simply grateful to enjoy it, watch from afar, and even dare to try and capture it for sharing with others. Enjoy!

Artwork Description:
This Arizona canyon path leads to Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon. The final destination down within the canyon presented breath taking and heart-warming imagery as well. My daughter made this trip and I am at awe with her photos. I am intrigued with this path and canyon setting for a couple of reasons – the warm palette, the essentially complementary color scheme, the depth as displayed in the color (hues and intensities), and of course the path which leads the eye off into the distance of the unknown – but sure to please. Naturally, I like it when my tool(s) and palette choose to cooperate with me – allowing me the pleasant surprises of an end-stroke, to the contrast of color, texture, and value capturing a fair representation of the beauty that is really there. Can you imagine being there – The warm, the rest, the quiet, the awe of this vast and commanding setting that states “Behold, I am a marvel!” Every state has its own big or little statements of splendor. Those of you who have been there, or nearby, have your own words to describe how these settings take your breath away. You stand there amazed. You stand and look, believing that if your legs and back would not tire, your eyes could endlessly “take it in.” From the tiny little beauties or intrigue below your foot, to the atmospheric mountains that command your eye and amazed mind from clear over there, you simply continue to “take it all in, in amazement.” If one has little appreciation for being out there and within nature, they would probably not find themselves here in this setting. For those who appreciate it, this setting begs a visit from you. I hope you get to visit and enjoy such beautiful natural wonders.

Artwork Description: Kokomo Opalescent Glass. Toward the end of the tour I was intrigued with the beautiful array of art glass. But along the tour I was also captivated by the rustic site itself, and the long-enduring equipment. One does pass through this setting, feeling as though you are strolling through a time in yesteryear, and marveling at structure and tools of this aged craft. This scene caught my attention – somewhere in the preparation stage – with carts made ready, having already at least collected some of the components in the mixtures for the glass, and sitting in wait for the fire. What caught my attention were the mixture of surfaces, textures, rustic color tone, and of course, the striking composition of values. This weathered-world scene just begged to be captured and shared. But, I like the story that is told. Ok, that’s a bigger statement when I hear it coming out of my mouth. Because the story is all the above-mentioned, and more. The story which includes things like – the fuller process that this craft proceeds through in order to produce their beautiful glass. The story also includes the “story” of the building, its wear, its architecture, the people who have worked in it who also had stories as well, the time-enduring equipment and tools, the patience of the process, and I am sure much more that doesn’t occur to my mind. Do you see and hear more to the story? I really do marvel at much here. Perhaps sequel work will unfold from my studio over time, adding to this story of process as well as the end product of the glass. The end product is indeed beautiful, and it is understandable why it distributed into a world-wide market. Pay a visit. Make a purchase. Prepare a project and place and order. Keep this craft in production. We are privileged to have this artistry in our corner of the world.

Artwork Description:
June 21st, 2019 is the day with the longest period of light. As I understand it is when the two poles are at their maximum tilt toward the sun, where the sun reaches it’s highest position in the sky. So, I was curious as to this day, as I imagine the longest light-day of the year, saturating my world with light and color. Therefore, I consider my lighted world, from dawn to dusk. True, it might behoove me to consider the early morning hours and the late night hours of moonlight. However, at this moment I am captivated by the thought of all of this cool-to-warm-to-cool washing color over the world. Grant it, there are those beautiful morning hours out on the front porch where light is beginning to penetrate my world (left side of canvas), perhaps a little moisture yet remaining in the air, fogging my full view. But soon, the sun, like a bridegroom coming out of his pavilion,.. like a champion rejoicing to run his course (Ps 19)…he breaks out into the day revealing a full array of color (central part of canvas). We only understand color the best we can, seeing it only to the ability we have at this time in seeing light, perhaps. But we see it because of light revealing it. The more perfect the light, perhaps more pure the color. Although I may pale at my ability to capture a glimpse of this color revealed by light, I still marvel at it. Some of my favorite things – light, and color. Oh, I would not do well to live in a dark or colorless world. My spirit is lifted with light and color. Thank you for that gift, and for the balance of life and days that give us some these days to experience. If someone is blind, well, I don’t believe that is the end of the matter. But that’s another conversation.

Artwork Description:
Composition 8. Abstracted landscapes and seascapes are a favorite. Not just for art patrons, but for the artists creating them as well. This work, and those similar to it, while they might take on a resemblance to the abstracted seascapes or landscapes, and are certainly inspired by them, they have an ambition of their own. Meaning, while inspired by those natural themes, the goal of these works have other objective(s). Perhaps similar to the design of patterns, the artist designs with the elements of art (value, color, line, texture, shape, and form) according to the principles of design (such as compositional balance, visual movement, variety and unity, emphasis and others). I approach these works in much the same way. I pay attention to the direction of the eye, what captures its attention, where it is directed by the tactual quality (texture/detail) or the contrast or the color – hue, value, and intensity, all of which can direct the eye to a focal area. A line naturally captures your eye and directs where it is to go. So, while I am working with media, cognizant of the colors that I choose (the hue, the value, and the intensity of them) I aim to control all of the above-mentioned, while still allowing the media and the tool enough freedom to create those “accidents” or “pleasant visual surprises,” while working within the perimeters of those design principles. It is a conscious decision to use a given color palette, or the general composition of the design. While I strategize for the background to show through in areas and create some visual texture and contrast, I cannot nor do I desire, to control the exact visual ending. There are unique lines, a composite of texture(s), a translucent layering of media, or a beautiful stroke of contrasting media that once applied simply begs to be left alone and appreciated. For me, design and creating in these types of work, afford a particular satisfaction in the effective design of what I should control (design elements, according to the design principles), while still awarding with the fun unplanned visual surprises that occur along the way with this delightful media.
