Caribbean Sun, Caribbean Island
My abstract art series explores the theme of networks. I use painted networks to create a single result from its many individual lines. A network of random lines all join together to create an unexpected result, a surprise image.   In this process, my painting, “Caribbean Sun, Caribbean Island,” evolved.  Displayed at my solo exhibit, “Networks,” at CornerStone Art Gallery, Indiana, U.S., 2013, and recently added to +Artfinder

In San Francisco last week, I saw the Matisse exhibit and an Impressionist exhibit - well worth the visit!

Pleased Young Girl is a portrait of a young girl smiling. In this painting I combined elements of expressionism and representational art.  Primary colors convey her energy and excited mood.  Previously displayed in a regional, curated exhibit at Studio 659 in Indiana. Now at Artfinder
