There’s been some new happenings in the studio these last few weeks, playing with abstract cubism/expressionistic landscapes. I love the realistic style in my painting, Boulder, and the simplistic blocks of color in the series, Boulder, Golden Road, Thunder, Pink Houses, and, Boathouse. These are small paintings, 10” x 8”, on wood panel. I thought the size would be limiting, but it’s actually more freeing. There is less of a concern of “ruining” a large canvas or panel. I’m not sure if this style is a new direction for some larger pieces or if it is just for this small series.
