Blue Impressions

A current theme of mine is landscapes and the impressions they create and feelings they invoke. A sunset can summon a variety of emotions and memories depending on the lighting, the color, and the movement of the brush strokes. I get inspiration from the San Francisco Bay. I like to run along the shoreline in the evening when the sun is setting. My mind is stimulated by the infinite possibilities of what I can create. I use oil paint along with brushes and palette knives to paint with. Oil paints allow me to create artwork that has vibrancy and dynamic colors. I use multiple palette knives to create depth and texture within my paintings. I want to create pieces of artwork that allow the viewer to escape from daily stress and concerns. I love to use diverse textures that come out when slathering paint onto a canvas. Depending on the stroke and pressure used, I can get various effects to come out. The random and beautiful patterns that one can create are infinite. I try to create artwork that is whimsical and allows the viewers to go on an adventure and to travel to another world. I want each piece of artwork to resonate with viewer on a personal level and I hope that each viewer has a different experience then the previous person. I want my work to be soulful, tickle the senses and please the eyes.
