I can’t show the  Christmas gifts I’ve been busy with for the last few weeks – don’t want to ruin any surprises. So, I’ve been working on some cut and paste-up sketches for a possible new series.

Final Draft Quilt C Desat. web.

Of course, whenever I have at it, they’re all quite subject to change, but I think this is a good start. Oh yea, I also worked up a color version for one them.

Any comments and critiques are welcome!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
