Turning 2019

This year my focus was to turn my gaze in new directions. In the past, I explored the small worlds of river

flotsam and jetsam. The idea of “turning” came to me last fall. I started focusing on the walls of color in

stands of trees, where the color mutates, or turns, from one hue to another in subtle and not so subtle

ways. My use of paint turned in new directions also, using flicking and skipping brush motions, and

utilizing luscious oil sticks, for a looser, more crayon-y graphic effect.
