The abstract is what I do. Being an artist, I perpetually look at what I’m going to paint next. I’m grateful to be living here in Sedona and the southwest I certainly have no shortage of subject matter to choose. Then there’s which medium am I going to use to create my next Sedona Landscape painting?
I recently decided to change the direction of my art and medium to a form of modern contemporary abstracts. I never thought I would, being the detailed painter that I am. So, I decided to explore the possibilities and took some workshops in acrylics & abstracts at the Sedona Art Center, here in town. And boy am I grateful I did!
Creating Sedona Landscape paintings with the abstract feel with acrylics was a real departure for me. I began my career as an artist painting desert landscapes in watercolor and then on to oils. I’m now painting exclusively with acrylics. There’s no toxicity (like oil) to using them. They dry extremely fast, allowing me to work at a fast pace and when I’m inspired, they serve me well.
“Inspired” is the style I’m now embracing. You’ll see a lot more of this new expressive form in the future. If you like my new direction in Sedona Landscape paintings, sign up at the top right of this page for further updates to my art.
