After a visit to South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) – some hiking, sketching, noting, and pic-taking – am ready to get started on a fun series of the area.

Coos Bay Tidal Channel

by on Jun.10, 2012, under Acrylic Paintings, Collages, for Recent Art

I was introduced to some work by English artist, David Tress and saw much of what I have been searching to get the feeling of what I was experiencing in nature. The layering of textures and extending past the picture plane was a huge reminder of how I thought of painting at an earlier age.

To experiment, I took an earlier “water” painting that had frustrated me and did the same scene but stepped further back so the composition and texture would give added strength. I feel this is a breakthrough for me – as I am lining up future works with the learned concepts.
