Australia was an amazing country to visit last year. Nature seemed so powerful and untamed. On the way to Twelve Apostles, the weather threatened with a storm, but ended up just a little shower. The views were just unbelievable.
In my painting I attempted to express the force of the waves, the dynamics of the sky and ocean.

Back home to baylands and color. It is slightly disorienting to come back from a vacation. First there is a lot of excitement and after that suddenly the doubt sets in and it becomes hard to pick up brush. This is my safe zone painting. I feel at home here.

Coming home from trip to southern Spain, I miss tapas and wonderful spanish wine. So to cheer myself up, I painted it. It will forever remind me of the old towns, squares, tapa bars and history that is so amazing it this beautiful country.

Waves, water, sun, beach and walk on the sand with one you love! That is my kind of afternoon. I love to paint couples. There is not anything more wonderful, challenging and changing than relationships. I want to capture the blissful times, when there is no worry, just you and me and sound of waves and time stands still.

This was an experiment. And I have to still resolve and finish the installation. I wanted to do a modular painting, that could hang in different groupings. you could hang it together next to each other or separate some or hang some on another wall. I think I will attempt a larger version, when I have time.

All the detail in the Old Town painting was just too much and I wanted to do something fun. Something playful and simple. Never believe if someone says that abstract painting is easy. I was repainting and repainting this so many times, it seems unbelievable. And at the end I looked at it and finalized the painting as a landscape. The process is always unpredictable.

Moody view of the old town side of the river Vltava in Prague. I was intrigued by the sky and the neutral hues in the buildings. I love the colors and i was trying to preserve as much of the underpainting as I could. It is so tempting to cover it all up.
