I have lived in and near the Colorado Foothills since 1972 and these paintings reflect my emotional response to watching the light change on the gentle rolling hills during my meditations along the creeks and while hiking along the paths.
In this series of paintings, my expression is changing from a flat painting surface to a textured canvas. I used different techniques to enhance the quality of the paint application, including painting over older paintings that I created during a class based on nudes.
Each of these paintings has a nude painted underneath. I like the abstract foothill images better.
