Abstracts New Orleans 2013-2016
These Abstracts are a series that was painted from 2010-2016 in El Paso, TX, Nacogdoches, TX and New Orleans. I have tried to take in the colors and light in the environment. These paintings reflect the Chihuahuan Desert, Arabian Desert and the bayous of Louisiana . I work in layers, building textures and allowing the paint to speak for itself. I enjoy the freedom that abstraction allows for both the artist and the viewer. This period of my work was while living in New Orleans , Louisiana where I was fortunate to have my work in a gallery on Royal ST, in the French Quarter. Being surrounded by the characters off the French Quarter and the bayous, I had no shortage of inspiration.
