Soulmates (2017)
mixed media on cradled board
24 x 18 in.

This work reflects my attraction to human interaction. My hope is that the viewer will be drawn into,and perhaps relate to, their story. During this time of social distancing, encountering human interaction is often rare. These abstract folks are safe to interact with.

They always begin with an abstract painting that appears as I respond to marks and colors that happen during the process, purposely avoiding thoughts of anything or anyone. Then final process of discovering the inhabitants is pure and they can tell their story.
