I started a new series of paintings. I had been working with drawing and painting on black paper for a number of years now and I wanted to lighten up my palette in honor of spring time. I continue to explore intuition and inner seeing with these new works. The circles are mandalas or entry points into an inner landscape. I've also continued to explore nature and a personal connection to the earth, in particular the California coast. The vast and ever changing ocean surface is an inspiration for these new works.
