ABLAZE



Special thanks goes to Oregon Catholic Press for selecting my painting "Holy Ground" as cover art for Christian Artist, Ben Walther! The abstract burning bush goes great with Ben's title track, "Ablaze" and makes a great match to his music.

The Blues

on Deep-Edged Panel

Available

Now this was a lot of fun to paint! Listening to the blues and painting expressive abstracts was very liberating for me.  This was a time when I just let loose and grooved with the canvas. 
So—Much—Fun! 

More music related abstracts to come. Stay tuned.

Jazz Trio



12"x16" Oil on Deep-Edged Canvas
with Palette Knife
Available

"Jazz Trio" is the next post in my music series. A jazz trio is a group of three jazz musicians, often a piano trio comprising a pianist, a double bass player and a drummer. It amazes me how such a small group can generate such a rich and complex sound. There is so much texture and interweaving of music. I tried to convey those textures in the painting. Some are soft, others are more defined. The oranges and reds represent the bass. The blacks and whites represent the piano. The white also doubles with the yellow for the drums. All of the other colors represent the magic of jazz.

There are more music inspired abstract compositions to come. Stay tuned.
