This painting illustrates the abstracted feeling and content of Psalm 91. Done in layered oil paint, scraping through to previous layers, it evokes both the cathartic challenges and the redeeming help described in the psalm.
An impassioned portrayal of a favorite place bursting with the glories of a fresh new season, with new shoots and leaves, blooming trees, and ripples on the reflecting pond. Somewhere in there a tadpole is growing.
Don’t you love it when the starry night is reflected in the water. The lagoon is quiet and still, and in amongst some bioluminescence and scattered algae, the stars twinkle their promise. The resulting hush is full of potential, calmly awaiting the spark of day.
This house by the bay is sourced deep in the recesses of my memory from pouring over too many Architectural Digest magazines as a kid. I have finally painted it in this abstract way that catches the spirit of being there– all angles and view and light and basking and color– with the bay as just another horizontal element in the overall architectural design.
Loved the moody but cheerful light in this glen. Painted alla prima in plein air, this abstract landscape was done in a burst of inspiration. It is a very textured, evocative piece. Is it moonlight, dusk, early morning, or just deep shade? Certainly, it is a place to linger and contemplate.
