After painting 50 years as an Impressionist landscape painter I’ve transitioned to a new genre I call “Secret World of Botanicals” the work is mostly intuitive. I use found items, real and imagined botanical elements expressed in acrylic mixed media.
My inspiration comes from Everything! Mostly from the Art Nouveau period 1890-1920. This delicate and bold imagery detailed in my paintings are applied with a wide variety of techniques.
A blank canvas isn't always an artist's best friend. After texturing the canvas an abstract design becomes the foundation for the painting. My artistic sensibilities are stimulated as I explore and reveal the secrets that appear within the confines of the canvas. While balancing color, shapes, design, line and rhythm, whimsical elements inevitably play with my imagination. Humor is an important element in my life.
As you view the Secret World of Botanicals, I hope you will be entertained, amused and pleasantly charmed. Enjoy!
