This series of paintings are experiments with the manipulation of color. My goal as a painter is to portray the infinite variation of color within a limited palette, using light and the minds-eye extrapolation for completion. I use the past as a platform to help enhance the presentation of the painting as a multi- dimensional object, reaching out to the viewer and bringing them into my own world. A continuing theme fulfills my interest in merging 19th Century Decorative Art as a foundation for my contemporary pieces, repurposing hand made artisan frames and hand spun convex glass.
