My current artistic style was born out of a creative process that found me looking for a new direction in my artistic development. It embodies, I think, an amalgamation of pure abstraction, art nouveau, and pop art. I sometimes rely on identifiable subjects for my paintings that foster an immediate emotional connection. I also rely on the emotional abstract properties of color, line and shape spread throughout the paintings that become the defining theme. My goal is to capture another level of reality and a sense of joy with a new set of connections for the viewer that will last for generations. The Process I start with rough drawing on canvas followed by color washes to fill the entire area. I paint several layers in acrylics making alterations to the composition when the art demands it. Shapes are moved and enlarged or made smaller as necessary. Colors are altered with the painting-as-a-whole in mind. Inspirations I have many art heroes. Those most influential to my current efforts are a muriad of Art Nouveau artists, Andy Worhol, the Pop king, and abstractionists like Matise, Kandinski, Mondrian and Motherwell. I think there is room to develp some unique real estate upon their shoulders.
