Color Combination Collage

As a painter, I adore color and shape. I especially like to experiment with the relativity of color; how colors influence each other by proximity. I expose relationships in color by working in layers. Some layers are not immediately visible in a given piece. These initial colors and shapes, however, ground the finished product by influencing colors yet to be applied and by showing up in glimmers and slices. I like to include a surprise color which at first glance may seem incongruous but has a way of solidifying the composition. My finished pieces are impressionistic landscapes and abstractions. All of my subject matter is derived from my observation of nature, including my flower gardens. I am inspired by the sense of disorder, yet perfect organization, I feel when in nature.
