My work is an ongoing series called "Shorelines" that now numbers 16 paintings. I grew tired of the horizon line and became fascinated with describing the place where the ocean and the land meet. This is where natural and man made litter come ashore. References to what is now being called the Anthropocene Era include plastic, netting, balloon ribbon, shards from Japan, metal scraps, as well as polymers, polyeurethane, and hardware store latex paints. How to include these references in paintings describing the intricate beauties of the seashore continually challenges me.
Recently I completed a series inspired by my walks around the reservoir, below Hanging Rock, behind Second Beach.
And hand surgery led me to begin a series of small 6”x6” paintings that are to be exhibited amongst the larger paintings.
