I am a visual artist using mostly acrylic paint on canvas. I’ve been working on something that I call The Ocean Series since 1978. The Ocean Series could be described as a Remodernist response to the late work of Mark Rothko.

    This has a beautiful brushed metallic feel (at least in this small web version). An excellent result, as are them all.

    This is the first thing I painted in the doomed beach house. Sold and destined for demolition, the beautiful old (1951) Modern structure designed by the famous architect, Paul Rudolph, stood on for another 2 years. I was the last inhabitant – a bittersweet experience.

    I can see why it is sold…this is very beautiful. The gold leaf is such a wonderful idea for this…and I really get a sense of peace from it. Wonderful work!!!
