New Paintings -- 2020 - 2021
My current painting practice and methods are spontaneous and come from within. I have no preconceived ideas beyond selection of colors and a strong desire to express with paint. Large brushstrokes, vigorous gestures and drawing directly on the canvas from paint jars are some of the techniques I use to make compelling statements on small canvases. I add depth to non-representational elements to take the viewer deeper into my vision of the world. My abstractions express emotions, the profound dynamics of the human experience, and the depth of what lies beneath the surface of life.
All of the paintings curretly in my Baker portfolio are acrylics on canvas, 8" x 10" either horizontal or vertical.
