Today a Leaf

Piece description from the artist

My goal is to make an interesting abstract painting using colors that evoke a particular light. Lately I've been using cut-out shapes as stencils, laying the solid shapes down and painting around them, doing this in layers as they dry. It's a slow contemplative process. The images I've been using are significant. They are based on imagery from Ancient Rome, cave paintings, and Celtic culture. Sometimes the images are pretty clear but usually I try to keep any obvious imagery out of the paintings and let abstracted shapes be in the forefront.
