  These paintings are from my contemporary abstract painting series called "Minimal". This painting series is mixedmedia/acrylic/stucco/concrete on paper, birch panels and canvas.

I have always had a fascination with old building surfaces, weathered concrete, stone, and aged paint. There is a story being told in these surfaces – of history, the passing of time and limitations we all relate to as our understanding of our own mortality. There is a feeling of warmth, familiarity, and comfort in these surfaces.

As a contemporary abstract artist, I realize I am in the business of creating “illusions”. In the Minimal series I let the layers of paint and texture tell my story and convey these feelings of time-created surfaces that we all seem to relate to.

 
 

ABOUT MY ABSTRACT PAINTINGS, NATURE PAINTINGS AND
FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

My original paintings are oil paintings on canvas and mixed media/acrylic on canvas and bold wood panels.

All of my work is impacted by nature or images from the physical world around me. I am greatly influenced by the beauty and diversity of the natural world and it's multifacited colors, shapes, and textures. Intrepreting the natural world in original oil paintings and mixed media as well as fine art photography, is my artistic passion.

I'm very comfortable moving from representational oil paintings, like my landscape paintings of "Caddo Lake", to abstract paintings, as in my "Nova Series". One of my recent abstract painting series, "Hacienda", expresses the rich textures, and weathered colors of old world Mexico. This series is representative of my current abstract painting technique which focuses on the use of deep textures with subtle multi-layered colors, accented with vibrant contemporary colors. My painting and texture technique has also developed into a very fresh contemporary abstract painting series of mixed-media paintings called "Minimal".

My original oil paintings, mixed media paintings, limited edition prints and fine art photography are available through this website as well as galleries in Dallas, Houston, Austin, Santa Fe and Hawaii.

 

FIRST PAINTING OF MULTI ART COMMISSION FOR EAGLE'S NEST PRESERVE COMPLETED.

Nature Paintings, Bass underwater This nature painting, titled "Walter Cruising Grand Lake" is the first painting completed in a multi-art commission for Eagle's Nest Preserve.

Currently under construction, Eagle's Nest Preserve is an exclusive private fishing and corporate retreat facility between Athens and Tyler, Texas. Eagle's Nest is the creation of Mr. Lee Roy Mitchell, founder and chairman of Cinemark Theaters.

This painting is the first of 3 underwater bass paintings and will be displayed in the future "Grande Lodge" at Eagle's Nest. The fourth painting in the commission will be a 10' oil painting of the lake at Eagle's Nest Preserve.

My goals in this painting were to capture the attitude of the bass, the fish floating or swimming underwater and the habitat where bass find food and shelter. The oil painting measures 30" x 40" and will have a very unique frame custom made from an old crusty cedar log.
