abstracting sand sea sky

The New Ocean Moods

Small studies for larger paintings

studio views


I have maintained a professional art studio in the Florida panhandle area since 1995. Originally from the Midwest I moved to Florida seeking respite from snowy-cold climes and a place to build a home and studio. My studio located in historic DeFuniak Springs is 27 miles from the Beaches of South Walton in NW Florida. I'm open by appointment with flexible days and times to visit.

About my work.

It's always evolving and changing but the essential approach of abstracting my subject has always been a consistent quest. Be it figurative, landscape or an interpretation of a more internal domain I mainly seek to explore the expressive nature of painting.

My current body of work is a revisit to a series I started in 2010 "The Ocean Moods". I've added to the series off and on over the years and doing a number of commission works as well.
This edition of the NEW Ocean Moods is executed with looser brushwork and a colorful painterly style. The emphasis this time is more about an expressive interpretation of it. My intention is to push the abstraction as far as I can yet still maintaining a sense of Sand Sea Sky.

I am currently self represented. Artworks available to purchase from my studio webstore or instagram. 2023
