Ebb Tide and Meadow Dance are the quiet balance to my more colorful and dynamic paintings. These two evolved out of a search for calm in 2023. If you’re looking for art that will soothe you every time you see it, I can truly promise these paintings will do just that.
Both pieces use gesso and white acrylic to create an underlying texture, and wax pastel to pull out the shapes that were organically formed from that process. Meadow Dance has the addition of hand-printed collage papers for the leaves.

May this new year bring us all toward a better world!
