Southwest Abstractions: Oils, Acrylics

Richard Diebenkorn once said, "Keep thinking Polyanna?"  I try not to take myself too seriously but strive to create art that is whimsical yet with a sophistication of purpose.  I've found that the buttery consistency of oils, coupled with their slow drying properties means they can be manipulated freely to produce an infinite variety of textures and effects.
