Meet Kinetic

Kinetic is the exploration of using aggressive marks to subtract the previous marks with bold and unrelenting color.  The teal is almost like a bolt of lightening that dances across the midnight sky.  It is the link from canvas to canvas.  

When I work on larger canvases I tend to work a lot more loosely, but still with intuition and intention.  I let the color and movement be the vessel that takes you on the journey.  I don't worry about symmetry and keeping things tight.  I am free in my thoughts and free with my heart.  

For those of you that know me, and know my work know that I work one canvas at a time.  Kinetic is different in the sense that I took 2 - 36x60 panels and joined them to make a 72x60 diptych.  

You may ask, why did you do that?  

There are two reasons.  Reason 1, I find something very luxurious and rich about multiple panel paintings.  It requires a certain muscle that I have not flexed in my art practice.  Reason 2, I could never fit a 60x72 canvas in my little SUV.

I chose to work this way to test my abilities and to see what would happen if I tried to work a bit differently.  Could I make two panels act as a single painting.

How do you think I did?

**  At this time this painting is not on my website.  If you feel that this painting would bring your home a new found joy please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email and I can share more details with you.  

For those of you who are new to my email list thank you for subscribing and taking the time to learn about me and my process.  I am overjoyed that you would choose me as someone you're interested in getting to know.
