I have added several 2023 stand alone paintings to the website. In these images I choose to deal with a single visual reference in each work. A bridge in Weimar Republic , a tornado in Off 2 Work, or the complex colors of an orange in Shifty Eyes became subjects for paintings.

The Wood Cutter
2022
Acrylic on canvas
30 x 87 inches ( two canvas' with gap)


Recent paintings of 2020-2022 focus on the abstract languages of structural patterns contrasted with colorful organic sections. I see color as both a major emotional and formal character in these works.
