Paintings

For years I painted on ceramic sculpture, so the leap off the sculptural surface to canvas was a very natural one. Presently, I am developing 2 separate series of paintings: Glass Series and Vessel Series.

The Glass Paintings evolved from the TRANSLUCENT photographs. It occurred to me, early on, that the successful photographs were the ones that had a very painterly quality to them and I always felt that I wanted to use those photographic compositions to make large oil paintings that straddle the line between realism and abstraction.
