Nebulae: the Eagle Series

Last year I became fascinated by Hubble photographs of space.  The Eagle Nebula was particularly intriguing to me.  Looking at those photos and feeling the deep space documented there motivated me to respond with these two paintings...

"Eagle Nebula #2"

Watercolor Abstracts

When I painted these four watercolor abstracts I wanted to capture the feel of time and place.  Here there is no longer any grid but the sense of human presence is created by the intrusion of geometric shapes that add an architectural dimension to the works....

"City of Light"
