Austin Kleon's Newspaper Blackout Poems.. the thought occurred why not do something like that with a painting? I also have been interested in Robert Kline and his paintings and the thought was.. why not put down some color and then strong black lines and then cover over the parts I didn't want with an off white/neutral set of hues. I'm very happy with the result and plan on doing a series of these this year.

Painting Worlds to Explore. A feeling of exploration is what attracted me to the abstract non-objective style of art. The mesmerizing shapes, textures and beautiful colors built a world I could get lost in. In May, 2008 I decided to venture in my own world of exploration. I create exploration in my paintings through color, light and dark areas and graphite line work. I collect typewriters and love to collage parts of a typewritten page into my paintings along with my other hand painted collage papers. I'm constantly building up and tearing surfaces down to build interesting textural effects. Join me in worlds to explore. If you are looking to fill that wall space, I can solve that problem for you. If you would like to have a unique personalized painting, I am available for commissioned work. Pick your favorite colors, composition format and size. Contact me for the details and I'll get started right away. If there are any questions about anything don't hesitate to call or email me. Thank you for taking your time exploring my worlds of paintings.
