I have always wanted to paint on a large canvas. I purchased four 3 foot by 4 foot canvases to see what I could create.
Colour, line, textures and shapes are all my passion. In each of these pieces I explore and play with all these elements in various ways.
Keys to the Rhythm, the first piece is playful, bold and colourful and has a graffiti vibe to it.
Sea Lights came about, after spending a month on the central California coast. I find the ocean exciting but also at the same time calming and relaxing.
In Rainbow Rising, I revel in the pure delight of texture and colour to create a playful, more youthful painting. It makes me think of summer carnivals and care free days enjoying the delights of sunny days.
Islands in the Stream, although not as colourful as the other three, takes the viewer on a leisurely trip down a texture filled waterway , that has many little surprises along the way.
