Foliage & Flowers                  

These paintings merge my love for botany and fine art, studying a handful of the many plant varieties that I am particularly drawn to. While there is challenge in aiming for the precise and exact (this is my tendency), it takes a greater amount of effort for me to move away from the tailored and meticulous to a process that is free and non-calculating. The more playfully I applied the paint onto these birch panels the better they were executed. In this series, I also made a point to migrate towards more saturated colors, rather than muted tones and pastels, in which I usually rest.
