Like many artists, I sometimes find that I need to experiment, or to loosen up. The following Abstracts are among those which were created in moments (sometimes days, or weeks) when the need to experiment bubbled up. Please see the next page for purchasing.
Inspired by the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, this acrylic on canvas is 36 x 48. The bright sun reflecting against the containers waiting for unloading and the Vincent Thomas Bridge are represented in this large, bold painting (framed 50 x 38 x 2.25) $4,250.00. SOLD
"Escaping Darkness" Painted during the onset of COVID-19, as a reminder to the strength that Americans exhibit, Escaping Darkness is an imaginary visual of the light rising from the darkness. The 20 x 20 acrylic on cradled board uses strong blacks, and shaded gray as a contrast to the white escaping from behind it. It is $1,300. It is unframed.
Just as the 405 that winds through Los Angeles and Orange County has stop and go and bumps along the road, so does life. The commuters are looking for that golden pathway that will take them home. How many people search for a golden road to happiness?
This large 48 x 36 has the textures that one might call bumps, and the golden roadway in the center. Bold and dramatic Life's 405 creates a focal point wherever it is displayed whether vertically or horizontally. Unframed gallery wrapped $4,250
An international award winning painting in the Botanicals category, New Blooms of Spring. As seasons change they bring new life to our surroundings. Blooms and a brighter sky were the backdrop for this 30 x 30 acrylic on canvas (framed ) $2,200.
Rain in the City is a 24 x 36 acrylic on canvas. I saw the rain and its beauty as it splashed on the pavement and created reflections. Imagine the rain - captured as falling shimmer against the tall building and reflecting from the street.. Gallery wrapped unframed $2,100
Night Falls is a 24 x 36 acrylic that the artist saw as the dripping change in color as the night enveloped the day and turned the sunset into darkness. $2,100 framed and on display in Snips Gallery in North Scottsdale, Arizona.

Seagull Beach View is a 24 x 24 mixed-media using acrylic and moulding paste, glosses and small wooden objects all on canvas. The sun bathers and surfers are tiny raised stick figures that are catching the sun and waves. This painting is awaiting delivery (post quarantine) to its new waterfront home. SOLD. JUST IN: Beach View is a Finalist in an Internal Fire Art Competition that is themed "Blue." The collector will be thrilled.
