 Intuitive Abstracts

    You may be wondering, What is an intuitive abstract, anyway? and Why would I want one? These abstract paintings are created using my intuition at the moment of actually applying the paint to the canvas.

     Each color and design I use is drawn from my emotional response to the relationships being created on the canvas, and each application of color is another spontaneous and intuitive step toward the completed painting. My goal is not to reproduce a recognizable image, but to communicate the emotional content of the painting to the viewer

     All my work is for sale. If you are interested in one of my canvases, I can be reached with email: [email protected], or by phone: 360-349-2334.
