Description Year: 2007.Original Size: 17 x 14'Medium: Acrylic on Arches Watercolor Paper.Original Available: Yes.Scene from the Volunteer Park Conservatory Garden in Seattle. I loved the contrast of the colors - the cool and the warm - and the illumination from the greenhouse ceiling.
The majority of my work consists of large, colorful acrylic paintings and smaller, more intimate watercolors which are often painted on location. Currently I'm working on several commissions, portraits, Northwest landscapes, and of course paintings just for the fun of it.
Influences: Vincent Van Gogh with his dots and strokes; the different shapes in his paintings, the nervous squiggles. Bonnard is my inspiration for color and color combinations.
Statement: Art is life. I paint the people and things I see and come into contact with during my daily routine. The art I paint is a reflection on the life that I live.
