Land and sea are the influence these days. With a new-found desire to get in
the ocean more, came a motivator to record the feeling in paintings. Drives to
San Francisco along 101 also has helped inspire. Oaks, rolling hills, the fading
gold of sun-drenched hills.
All paintings are in pastel. I moved away from oils years ago. The flexibility, and need to literally get my hands into the pieces as they evolved, lead me to use pastels full-time.
Frames are custom-made, with a slightly distressed,
older look; like they’ve been around for a few years.
Each frame is slightly different, matching the vibe of
the art it surrounds.
