Last year was the year of the abstract figure for me. This year is all about landscapes, a return to my former motif, but with a new emphasis on color, abstraction, and dynamic surfaces. These new works are bolder and much more stylized. I had experimented with this earlier in some large sailboat pieces and a couple of large riverscape sunset artworks, and now I am all in on this style. The look is a modernist yet realistic visualization of a place.
