Latest work: "Winter Nights" and "Winter Rains"

It rained heavily and steadily all night and when I awoke, I made a large series of “Winter Rains/Winter Nights” abstract images. I’m drawn to the dark, rich colors of warm browns and varying blues, as well as the strong linear and circular elements.

To make these, I combined a number of my hand-painted papers, vintage Japanese papers, and there’s even a piece of ledger paper in there somewhere.

One series is predominantly brown, the other series primarily blue. There are six in each series. Here are two examples.
