New work at Flatcolor Gallery Seattle

"Windfalls"

Opens Thursday August 4th, 5-9pm and runs through August 27th.
When I’m working, I often “see,” with my mind's eye, colored strokes which are like suggestions for the next steps to take in my paintings. Like the ripest of fruits blown out of a tree to enter their next phase of life, these strokes move the painting forward and become seeds of my evolving visual vocabulary. Sometimes I question the wisdom of these "suggestions;" they can seem preposterous in relation to what's happening in the rest of the painting. However, in the spirit of improvisation, I generally accept the invitation. These mysterious Windfalls never fail to carry me and my work into fresh territory and add a welcome element of surprise to my life.
