Landscape Abstraction


I don`t do many paintings that have unrecognizable elements.
David Trowbridge and I are collaborating on a couple of pieces for a benefit for the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. I was trying to create something evocative yet neutral for him to respond to. We`re going to trade our paintings back and forth until we get something we like. With this abstraction, I got carried away and think I`ll keep it.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Sitka show :) This is gorgeous.

Sounds like a wonderful and interesting collaboration :) I like this one, too - reminds me of an octopus' garden (remember that Beatles song?)

Well, you know how much I like your abstract paintings; so, I think you should get "carried away" more often.

I'l put a note about the Sitka benefit in one of my October All Art Friday columns.

Love it. Also like the hard edge of freely painted paper in your collages. I hope to see the Sitka show. I come and paint every year on the Siletz and never get to the Sitka Art Center. Even go and paint at Cascade Head!

I don't blame you for keeping this just like it is. It's beautiful. It'll be interesting to see what you and David wind up doing. I've calendared the Sitka Invitational; that's a show I seldom miss.
