Title: "Glen Dweller"

Price:  $$225

Media:  acrylic on canvas                                             


Over the past several years, my chosen media have been sculpture, photography and writing. Lately I have taken up painting, concentrating mostly on created, imaginary landscapes.  It’s very new and it’s purely intuitive. It’s all about experimentation—I don’t know what’s going to happen next; which is part of the fun.
