|Frustration is the in ability to accept what is.|
So on that note, ill put some not seen in a long time, or never seen before stuff here. While I've been doing a lot of portrait photography for people I consider that work for them. The work I post here is work for me. If someone just happens to like the art enough to buy it that's a bonus.
Calligraphic and Reduction Prints
This of course inspired me to paint. I used some of the images I took as a foundation to get started, but of course the painting takes on its own life in the process of its creation.

Georgia O'Keeffe once said that "Nothing is less real than realism.... Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get the real meaning of things."
The Alhambra has such gradure; that to try and capture its entirety is overwhelming. It is the way the paths all lead to another, to another area of beauty and serinity; to another covered walk, arch and window. It is a unique blend of water, earth and man.
Most of what I paint comes from my responce to locations, people, events and thoughts. My camera is my tool for documenting of the original beauty as my eyes saw it. My brush is my tool in illustrating how my soul felt it.

On a night I couldn't sleep sprang 2 new abstracts. Blue then Green.
Both paintings are oil on canvas 16"x20"
There is energy here; a process of movement, color and intensity.
I only wanted to work with cool colors as to help calm down the energy.
I'm not sure quite what to call them yet. But I'm leaning toward "Curving In" for the green "Journey" for the blue.
But as usual, I'm also not quite sure they're finished.
