The inspiration for this series of paintings arose from years of walking along Boulder Creek in all kinds of weather and at different times of day. After years of spending time along the creek, these paintings are my emotional response to the experience.
The painting process begins with heavy application of oil paint with a pallet knife to create texture. After the layer of thick paint dries and hardens, I begin the next layer, painting the contemplated image. Color and texture are the predominate features of my work, especially creating unique hues to reveal a particular mood. After applying untold layers of paint to create unique colors, my interpretation of my heart-centered experience arrives on the canvas.
