“China Dog” a recent abstract painting from my Networks series. I start by applying swatches of color to the canvas in a random but slightly controlled composition. Then, using a single color, I start outlining these swatches. Eventually, a figure or scene starts to emerge as the lines are laid in, just as a social network starts to take on a life of its own to create its final phenomena. Like reading a Rorschach inkblot, my subconscious offers up a definite recognizable shape or scene from the materializing network. In this way my painting, China Dog, was created.

This artwork portrays a nude young woman who is in a quiet, contemplative mood. The unifying theme in my figurative art is to express the feeling or mood evoked by the subject of my art, whether happiness or introspection. Viewing “Blue Nude” conveys feelings of sensuality and solitude.
