Category: Abstract Works

A chronological listing of all of my abstract paintings and drawings. While the styles vary, the common denominator to all of these works is spontaneity with an intent to disassociate ego from the creative process.

Providence (2019)


Oil on canvas
30 x 40 inches

This piece is a prime example of the unpredictability in spontaneous painting. My usual process in a “geode” painting is to mix the paint directly on the canvas and eventually begin blending the colors to produce the band-like effects. With this piece, however, once I finished the initial mixing stage, I realized this is what the painting wanted to be – it didn’t want me to go any further. Even thought I’d just begun, I listened to the painting and stepped away. This piece reminded me that sometimes, the most important actions are the ones you don’t take.
