February blast from the past: 'work on canvas' 
Barbe espagnole 38
2010, mixed media on canvas, 72 x 48 inches
Barbe espagnole is a series inspired by the iconic hanging plant in the Southeastern U.S, known as Spanish moss. The thick curvilinear strands suspended from trees are instantly recognizable, provoking personal memories of a unique history of customs, music & cuisine. Barbe espagnole represents a strong connection to an idea of a natural symbol of the South.
The work on canvas is developed initially with a grid or network, and responding with a series of curvilinear, meandering lines realized into recognizable forms. Quality of line is an essential component, integrating the activity of drawing with that of painting in multiple layers of mixed media.
February blast from the past: 'works on paper'
"Tonal" drawings
Top, Tritone 99, Bottom, Duotone 128 and Tritone 119, charcoal, pastel on paper, all 24 x 24 inches
Drawing on paper is a time-honored tradition of noting by hand what the mind perceives through quick, gestural marks made on an extremely receptive substrate. I enjoy the process of drawing, erasing and rubbing and appreciate the effect this activity renders.  Impressions are captured quickly; therefore, an aspect of immediacy is attained.  Because the paper is infused primarily with pastel & charcoal, these works preserve a sense of light that communicates through the layers. The media has taken hold of its space.
