Oil Painting-Crystal Series


24 x 36" oil on board


Abstractions and Emotions

Holiday exhibit

Residential setting

The Crystal Series developed while participating in an art club several years ago. Once a month we would randomly choose a word out of a dictionary and create a piece of art inspired by the word. Such words as Ruction, Portevangilium, Ornament and Crystal, to name a few. The latter is the catalyst for this series. With the assignment, I studied a variety of rocks and the crystalization structure within. The painting developed using cubist forms, a select color palette and light intensities of the rocky components. The subjects evolved into abstractions of nature, music and architecture.
