I am happy to announce that a collector has purchased another of the works from my 9 canvas series called “9 1/2 Hours”! This is a series that I created to commemorate a trip to Argentina that took an unexpected turn as life often does – I mean just look at right now in 2020! This is one of the 9 canvases and is called Contemplation. It was sold via Zatista Gallery. I would like to thank Jeffery from PA for purchasing this work during the pandemic. I hope that you will enjoy it and that it will make the stay in home period to be a little more tolerable and a work you will enjoy for years to come.

These are uncertain times – None of us has experienced this before and yet we must go on as humans have always done. In these times spending more time at home you have an opportunity to create an environment that is both motivational and stress reducing. Abstract art is just the thing to address both of those.

Good abstract art is visually stimulating and pulls the viewer in, allowing them to get lost in the shapes, patterns, and colors to experience the work in a very individual way. I am often told by collectors that my art brings back a certain memory or feeling – this is the power of abstract art! Most of all surrounding yourself with art provides a positive environment that is conducive to reducing the stress we are all feeling right now!

I am happy to report that collectors continue to enjoy purchasing art as a wonderful way to bring pleasure into their lives even in these times!

Here I am venturing out to ship some of the artwork sold the previous week – Thank you!

Inspired by the colors I love, all of them! This piece is full of contrast, iridescent tones, organic shapes and rapid changes in colors. Very vibrant statement piece with spontaneous paint drips, large brush strokes and glossy finish. High quality Golden acrylics and UV protective gloss enamel.
