Southwest Abstractions: A Modernist Tradition

Following a Modernist tradition, my work abstracts nature.  In painting the landscape, I generally consider the idea of the setting more than the actual look of a specific landmark.  In these latest works, I've tried to capture the land's rhythmic and dynamic qualities. In some, I've incorporated watercolor washes and accents of gouache; others are works in either oil or acrylic.  Each is part of an ongoing series of atmospheric landscapes celebrating the seasons and senses of the Southwest.
