The element of color has always played an intricate part in my art.    Even before beginning a painting, I select my color palette based on the feeling or mood that I want each piece of art to evoke.

 It occurred to me a few years ago, that maybe the job of each intentionally selected color palette was not finished at the exact moment that I signed my painting.  Those colors had more left to communicate…  So, I began working with the paint that lingered on my palette as a way to extend the story that I initially set out to tell.  I began mixing, swirling and pouring color palettes freely.  This has now become a ritual part of my painting process.

 Each abstract pour was created as a conclusion to a more realistic painting of mine.  Some were poured on canvas, some on wood, or on other objects but each one tells a story with the element of color.  If you look closely you will see it! 

Enjoy!
