Morning Has Broken 2

8″ x 8″ Oil

Hiking early in the mornings here in the Valley of the Sun,

hoping to beat the heat as temps climb into the triple digits.

The beauty of a new dawn breaking is moving beyond words.

So I try to paint the emotion.

18″ x 24″ x 2″ Acrylic, $700

This contemporary painting of a musical instrument, specifically

a cello,

has painted 2″ sides and is ready to hang as is.

I used several layers of paint during the creation of this one,

often thinking of the layers of stain and varnish that a luthier applies

when making his or her instruments.

Bloomin Cactus

16″ x 20″ Acrylic, $600

These last two weeks I have worked on five

saguaro cactus paintings,

exploring different compositions,

color combinations,


and different mediums

such as pastes, gels, glazes.

Now I’m kind of obsessed with how many

different concoctions I can come up with.

At first I painted this abstract contemporary painting

as a horizontal piece.  But now I like it as a vertical piece.

A good abstract painting “should” look good in a variety of placements.
