In earlier years, living in Nebraska, I worked in a variety of formats including painting, printmaking, and sculpture, exhibiting throughout the Omaha and Council Bluffs area. As a resident of Colorado Springs for over 30 years, and an active member of the Pikes Peak Watercolor Society and the Colorado Springs Art Guild, I now paint primarily with acrylics on canvas, creating pretty much representational art, rather than anything truly abstract.
Although I start out with an idea of what I want to portray, the effects of the actual painting process, both accidental and planned, often alter my vision and the final outcome. I try to focus on the effects of light – grey days, twilight, sunrise, sunset, and strong shadows, striving for feelings of mood, fantasy, and a little mystery. My artwork has been viewed in a number of local venues and shows, and my originals and prints are available at Boulder Street Gallery in downtown Colorado Springs, located at 206 N. Tejon Street (beside Terra Verde and across from Uncle Wilbur’s Fountain). More info at www.boulderstreetgallery.com, or call (719) 636-9358.
