Found Objects

(24" x 36", oil on canvas)

I love a composition like this one that focuses on shape and tone and challenges me to find the subtle attraction in the less than traditionally beautiful. Instead of using bright colour to keep the viewer's eye engaged, I use perfectly tuned lights and darks to achieve my goal.

My most popular canvases are generally those with lots of colour. So while this painting may not have wide appeal, this personal set of aesthetics feeds my artist's soul.
