Tributary

Roger-Viollet Rue de Seine 1910

It's finally raining in Northern California and it's coming down in buckets!

Am preparing for an exhibition in April and spending many hours in the studio.
The exhibition is titled Tributary and references the importance of water within my own artistic process and also as a metaphor for time and movement.


 ‘All our final decisions are made in a state of mind that is not going to last.’
“Toutes nos d├ęcisions finales sont prises dans un ├ętat d’esprit qui ne va pas durer.”
Marcel Proust

I've been enjoying the freedom of painting on canvas and my connection between abstraction and figuration grows stronger.  With each decision the possibilities narrow and the conversation between artist and material takes shape.  Intuitive logic rules the day.  


As the hills turn green, my heart rejoices!   
Color has a spiritual impact.
