Month: November 2015


You know that feeling when you sense something will happen, there is a strange vibe in the air? I’ve felt weirdness in the air since I woke up Monday morning.

This week is not over yet but it’s definitely been along week and I think I might need more than a weekend to recover from this.

Weird. That’s all. And I want it to go away.

Painting of the Week

unnamedI present to you “Landscape in Coral II.” I worked on this piece this past week for my upcoming show (Nov. 13 in Phinney Ridge, Seattle) but it took me a while to complete, so I don’t think it is going to be ready and framed in time for the show.

The past couple of months have been complicated – moving, a lot of work, a lot of visitors and my trip to Argentina – so I’ve been unmotivated, to say the least. I’m happy that this piece turned out as it did!

I have been noticing, however, that I’ve been migrating from pools of color to more ‘landscapey’ forms for the past couple of months, but completely by accident! I consider my art to be abstract, but you can definitely see a hint of a landscape here, no?

If you would like to purchase some of my art, you can visit my shop!
