I always look at the patterns on a body of water and think about the Chrystal pieces of a chandelier or glass. The fascinating reflections.

During the summer the colors are always deeper and warmer. The undertone of gold on canvas is to enhance the heat associated with summer season.

As an avid gardener I take so much of inspiration from directly from nature. Of course as an artist I can create my imaginary arrangement as flowers and plants don’t all bloom at the same time.

Construction and de-construction of this painting. I started with a very realistic painting of flowers and then destroyed them by painting over them. It was a difficult process at first and then surprisingly satisfying.

Le Jardin paintings are part of my flower series; experimenting with the traditional fine art oil painting and the more contemporary approach with acrylic paints. Oil paints give a luscious depth and texture to the painting which is sometimes missing in acrylics. By the same token acrylics give a freedom to manipulation which is missing in oil. Manipulating the mediums is my favorite part of the process. You can see more of the latest paintings on my website. The acrylic paintings tend to be very large while the oils are smaller to keep the colors fresh and vibrant.

The color blue represents air and water. The blue bowl is a vessel for holding these important elements. The pomegranate fruit is considered the fruit of life in many cultures, especially the middle east and a close tie to my roots.
