Star, Oil, 48x48in. 2013

Inspired by the passing of spring and all it’s magnificent colours, that I thought to challenge myself on painting as many as I can without using black or white.  In other words, pure natural colours.  Who to thank for other than mother nature herself? The stars – these tiny dots hanging in the nightsky.  They look frozen yet the opposite is so true.  A snapshot with the imagination would reveal billions, if not trillion, Gaga zillion colours!  This makes me wonder how much do we really see each moment…a blink of a second we miss.  How rich we could be with colours all around us.





Tulip in the dining room



Tulips, acrylic, 16×20

An impression of delight impressed into my memory of tulips on a dining table. Table cloth, puter ware, black lacquer chairs, and a red fortune envelop. This reminds me of Van Gogh’s cafe.

Rhododendron, charcoal & pen, 24×36

Spring is here and there’s something magical, awe inspiring about blooming flowers that makes me want to do art.  I was fixing my deck,  exhausted but when I saw these flowers and I was completely mesmerized by their light and shadow.  Charcoal seem the appropriate medium for nothing last forever.  The movement was furious and the lines – visceral.
