Long Journey, Oil on Canvas*, 12x70

Long Horizontal Oils & Acrylics

These paintings are concerned with the interplay of light and space. I start with a long, empty canvas, and the painting develops with shapes, colors and textures that interact. The painting takes over and I am always surprised how it draws out deep memories of places, light and colors that have excited me during my journeys.

Unstretched canvases (marked * in the display) all have an unpainted border at least five inches wide on all sides, so that they can be stretched and framed if desired.
