THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF MY ACRYLIC CONTEMPORARY PAINTINGS
I HAVE BEEN DOING ART SHOWS IN CALIFORNIA,NEVADA,ARIZONA AND IN COLORADO SINCE 1980 WHEN I MOVED HERE FROM NEW JERSEY.
These are my original contemporary acrylic paintings on gallery depth canvases comprised of acrylics,pastels,oils and inks.
In each of the paintings I use LAYERS OF TEXTURE,broad brush strokes that pull the materials to expose the strokes that lie beneath the surface of the painting.
