    Artist Statement

    I am a Southern landscape painter who uses abstraction as a vehicle to present my artistic concepts. In my youth, I spent many hours playing in pine forest across the street from my house so this accounts for my fascination with pine trees, hills and hollows and landscapes in general. I like the stickiness and the thickness of oil paint and I apply it with a palette knife, but I sometimes scrap a hand-full of paint off my palette and smear it on the painting. I also use brushes, paper towels and what ever is handy to apply paint to the canvas. I consider myself a cubist, breaking down areas into slabs of color. Studying Han Hoffman taught me how to achieve depth by using color alone.

    Thank you for purchasing the painting and for the comments. I love painting the shifting colors of water and it is something special when a painting resonates with a viewer. Did you know the painting had been on display on Ugallery only several hours before you purchased it?

    I had a difficult time choosing which of your paintings to purchase since I love the style and color in everyone of them. I finally chose "Islands in the Stream: Last Light" and am happy I did! Wonderful Art!

    Thank you for your comments. My style is rooted in Cubism and my colors come from living in the South where colors are carried to the excess. After all, Elvis was the first to sport a pink Cadillac.

    I love the way I can look at a section of this painting up close and find a gorgeous abstract design. And then I step back and I see a beautiful landscape full of lights and shadows and creative choice of colors. I am in awe of the skill set involved in doing that!

    I bought this because the placement of the shapes and the colors create such intensity and energy. I like to move my paintings around and no matter where I put this one , it brings my environment to life and raises my spirits.
