Leaping the Fence

"Fences 1"

"Fences 2"

These two small oil pieces are in a local show called "Illusions". So many viewers were surprised to see this style from me, but these two are really not so completely different from the rest of my work. Note the sense of creative flow, where reality dissolves into imaginative thought... from the point of view of the character in the painting, or the viewer viewing the character in the painting. It's all about perspective, even here, in work I created around 2006.

It was soon after these paintings that I turned more directly into abstraction.
