The Green Fuse, 24 x 36 inches.
Here is another abstract along the same lines as the triptych I posted here a few day ago.
I read some Dylan Thomas last weekend, and so was thinking of his poem as I worked on this painting.
The colors here are more accurate, because I took this photo outdoors.

I started this painting on a trip to yosemite with my painting friend, Cynthia, in the winter, but were were snowed out before I could finish it. I just sorted out the photos from that trip and finished the painting. I like the silvery light that heralds impending snow that was somehow preserved in the painting.

Portrait of Wouter, pastel, nfs.
I did this portrait in too little time for a true likeness.This is a 25 minute study that reminds of the importance of attention to drawing and proportion. If I had drawn first, I would have a painting with a better resemblence to the subject.

2007 Self Portrait, 11x14 inches, pastel, nfs.
I try to do at least one self-portrait per year. This portrait it the first painting I have done in my new Studio! I am renting a small space to do work in!
As you can see from the portrait, there is a need for better lighting in the studio--it is on the way.
