Demo Painting Series — this is a series of acrylic landscape paintings prepared for a home exhibit for realtors, designers and their clientele. The paintings were done as demonstration paintings while teaching landscape and still life painting. The showings will be in the East Mountains Oct 16th & 17th. The paintings are centered around points of interest and places in NM. Paintings are 10″x8″ on canvas framed and matted 11×14.

Vivid colors juxtaposed against warm and cool hues, mixed with a complimentary pallete, bring the landscape alive and gives one a sense of place in New Mexico.  Shape, form, texture, all plays an integral part of the artworks.

I am working on a new series of paintings called, “Earthscapes.

The Earthscapes painting project creates a new series of 7 large format paintings that conceptualizes and contextualizes our relationship to water and its effects on society. The essence of my painting is landscape that discovers the effects of water and evokes the sense of place. The Evolutionary Landscape Series has been the focus of my artwork and Earthscapes has evolved o

ut of this work. In this project focus on imagery of satellite and microcosms view points of landscape and human relationships to it, and the behavior that has altered the ability for the Earth’s systems to cool the planet and my work will address the repercussions of action and inaction of the crisis.

I will blog updates and thoughts on process as I move forward with this new journey.  Please join me on www.USAprojects.com and help support this endeavor.
