Casually referred to as “mindscapes" or "dreamscapes” this abstract series is my winter respite from the rigors of plein air painting during the dry warmer months pursuing representational landscapes. These paintings grew out of an exploration of developing luminosity on textured surfaces using transparent layers of pure color. To my surprise they curiously began to develop a catalog of personal iconography and perhaps reveal an unseen vision of the subconscious mind both collective and personal.
