Working with color, form and texture are inspiring to me and are the hallmarks of my paintings. I love to relish in the sights and fragrances of my gardens each morning This is an original abstract painting presented on a gallery wrapped canvas. There are 10+ layers of acrylic paint, washes and glazes. All of these elements give the painting a depth, richness and interest.
