Chat Women

Resurrected and revived: Cupsaw women from
my summer sketch book. New ink techniques
superimposed on an old Starlet Chorus Line Queen.
Enjoy, mes amis. A bientot!

Red Frame, Watercolor on Paper


There is nothing more satisfying to me than a brush across a smooth sheet of paper. I push against the edges of the picture plane as if it contains four walls. I work with creating lines. I also use combinations of three colors which I assign tonal hues. I build layers of vivid colors where forms emerge and recede and others are pulled into the foreground. As I work, I never stop thinking of these elements. There is no greater harmony to me then when the struggle of arranging the composition is complete.
A bientot!

Self Portrait of Sorts

These legs are roots for your thirst.

These arms are branches for your play.

These hands are leaves for your protection.

This heart is a canopy of love for you both.
