New Series – Music and Memory

I'm focusing on loosening up. It's refreshing to get back to how I used to go about painting. It's a process of being aware of my surroundings, listening and responding to music, making marks and letting the piece grow organically from there. Marks and thoughts create associations allowing images, symbols and layers (both figuratively and literally) to develop.

For each new piece I'm listing a series of influences that led to the final image. It's a tremendously exciting way to paint for me, because each time I sit down to create a piece I have no idea where I'm headed. Like each piece is an adventure. Instead of a scary blank white canvas, it's like setting off on a journey.

Here are the first two pieces I've made available.
