Another year dawns and I find I'm ready to continue my exploration of art through paint. I plan on continuing a series of abstract city landscapes that I started last year in a particular "blocked" style, with, of course, variations. Should be interesting, so stick around.

I am trying to work on two series at the moment, both in a 24x24 square format. The first is a series of highly abstracted landscapes in which I am trying to encapsulate fundamental colours and patterns of the landscape but without reference to each other. See "Winter Escape" on this page for an example of this series. The other series is based on shapes and patterns seen in everyday urban life, but in that case the shapes have a reference to each other and are not encapsulated so that the city is more visible. See Urban Views 1 for an example of this series.
