The Art of the Series

Up until recently, I painted whatever I wanted to paint, whenever I wanted to paint it. Inspiration for me has never been an issue. All I have to do is look outside my window at all the glory of nature and I am off and running.

I love the process of putting paint to canvas, and I feel a strong connection to each and every one of my paintings. I always sense that I have left a piece of my soul in every work, and that this is the essence of art’s ability to connect with viewers. These paintings are, in some sense, alive. They carry my emotions to you and to your experience with the work.

As I stood in my studio not long ago, I noticed that several of my paintings seemed to interact with each other. They shared a common color theme or subject. I began re-organizing the studio in order to group certain works. They just seemed to belong together. It was almost as if they were old friends, anxious to link arms and share some subtle secret, some shared history.

I had never thought about painting series of works, but now I am exploring the energy of the relationships between my paintings. It’s an extra level of aliveness, the connection between me and the canvas, between the canvas and the viewer, and between the paintings themselves. Certain works must have sprung from a common thought, a central feeling, and sometimes I did not know until later that there were undeniable bonds between some of the paintings.

This discovery has led me to a new space of experimentation; of relating to my work and allowing myself to more fully explore certain inspirations over a series of paintings. I have so much to put into my art, it made sense not to limit certain ideas to one canvas.

Please look at some of the series on my website and let me know what you think. Let me know where you see partnerships of color, texture and light. Just as humans desire connectedness with other humans, I think art creates its own relationships of spirit and energy, eager to be part of a great inspiration.
