Original Paintings on Canvas & Giclee Prints on Canvas
Original acrylic paintings on archival watercolor paper, also available in Giclee prints on canvas.
When I paint a square canvas it is most likely to end up totally non-representational or non-objective. A vertical format often lends itself to a non-representational image, but sometimes inspires me to think of trees, stems, or other vertical images of nature. It takes some getting used to when I change from painting a square surface to a vertical. That's why I often stick with one shape at a time, doing a series before I change again.
Some of my nature-inspired vertical paintings are based on images of trees and forests, others on leafy plants, and others on flowers. More geometrical-based non-objective paintings are Circus Partners and Fresco. Another group of four paintings consist of various interpretations of the symbol "X": X Series Three, Four, Five and Eight.
I paint with acrylics using thick paint straight from the tube as well as thinner mixtures of paint, water and glaze medium. I use a brush or palette knife, depending on the effect I want to create. I also draw lines in acrylic paint by screwing a cap onto the end of the paint tube and squeezing the paint through the hole in the end. The use of line is very important to me, providing emphasis, texture, and compositional delineation.
In some of my newer paintings on paper, I used an impressionist technique related to pointillism. The method here is to paint with small brushstrokes of various colors placed close together that accumulate to create the impression of an image. Examples of this technique are Contemporary Painting Five, Seven, and Ten.
My original abstract paintings on canvas are stapled on the back of heavy-duty 1.5 inch thick stretcher bars. The painted image continues around the sides of the painting, so that no frame is required. The original paintings on paper need to be framed behind either glass or plexiglass (acrylic) to protect them. An alternative is to order a giclee print on canvas of any image, which gives you more choice in terms of size. The prints are stretched on 1.5" thick stretchers also, with a mirror image on the sides so that no frame is required.
