City and Country

Presenting two series' of oil paintings created in the spring and summer of 2016, in and arround the city of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains. I use bright, warm colors, and vigorous impasto to flood my paintings with light and color.

In the series "City" I seek to convey the excitement I feel in Asheville, by the juxtapositioning of bright colors and jumbled forms.

In "Country" I hope to capture the calming, energizing effects of the natural beauty of Western North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I hope the viewer feels the excitement and peace I felt when creating them.
