Continuing the tradition, this Pathways art to calls for winter, for coolness, for the rise of trees from the depths of snow, for the white of a sky bleached by a distant sun.
Wide and low, this glimpse into the wintry forest is an odd shape that would go perfectly in a bookshelf, or matted into a bigger frame as shown here.
Where do you need the crisp bite of winter in your life?
Above, you can see the cool blue-violet shapes that feel like trees, or vines, or rain down a window. Below, the painting is in its temporary frame, waiting for a new home.

Like soothing waves of water, this blue-violet color contains surprising amounts of detail once you look past the initial impression. There’s a very subtle hint of sparkle here and there, the smallest shapes of water and spray, and of course the more obvious gradations of flow.
The tall, narrow rectangular shape echoes a hallway flowing with water rather than a more natural stream.
Above, you can see the tiny details, flecks of paint and flecks of white like foam and stones in the water. Below, the painting is trapped in its frame, a piece of time forever frozen under glass.

A strange, swirling white mist furls through the tops of the strange trees in this grove. Or perhaps it’s flowers, or low-hanging clouds that’s half-obscured by the reaching, rattling black branches.
The Pathways series takes a strange turn with this one, almost not an abstract at all with is tree-like shapes and hints of deliberation among the randomness.
There’s a beautiful simplicity to the materials in this painting, opaque black paint, opaque white gel ink, and the swirling interactions between the two on top of the warm buff of the soft, textured paper.
Above, you can see the ghostly white shining through the deep black and floating atop the warm buff paper. Below, you can see this tiny painting in a frame, ready to add some spook to your space.
