1st AMENDMENT UNDER ATTACK . / 14 x 20 / Oil on Canvas

I am currently working on two new series:  TOM'S MEADOW is an interpretive look at a particular landscape from different focal points.  These works are done in acrylic on wood panels.  My other new works are part of my Constitutional Series '18.  These paintings will give me a way to cope with the tumultuous political scene under the current administration.  The first completed work, 1st AMENDMENT UNDER ATTACK, is my perspective on the undermining of free speech by the President.

My 2017 series, Space Walks, took me in a new direction.  Acrylics.  No brushes allowed.  The result is a growing collection of abstract interpretations of NASA space photos taken by the Hubble Telescope.  I’m loving the experience.  It’s been a wonderful spiritual and intellectual adventure.  

I continue painting landscapes. Sky and Water and Sand.  I work in oils and my canvases grow larger year after year.  My plein air studies are usually done in oil applied with palette knives.  Working outdoors is challenging as well as rewarding.  Though plein air is a smaller, summertime joy of mine, the work informs my studio work.
