Artist's description:

For this three-panel work, I stayed with a cool palette of blues with some pops of magenta, yellow and white. I proceed by responding to the colors and love to build many layers where previous colors peek out or provide substance with their edges holding on to the top most layers.

I love color and the physicality of the paint, whether it's thick or fluid. It's always colors that move me and there is an adventure of discovery, of seeing how they look on the painting surface and I work to place them so an energetic balance is achieved in combination with the deliciousness of the pigments.

I do not license the images of my paintings for reproduction in any medium, so the original you purchase from me remains the one and only.

For shipping outside the US, rates quoted are for this canvas to be removed from its stretchers to ship rolled via DHL Express. Please see the Me At Work section under About for images of how I prep paintings for rolled shipping. If you prefer a specific carrier or type of service, or would like a quote ready to hang, please contact me with city, postal/zip code and country.

A signature is requested at delivery.
